2.3 Understanding the Timer
2.3.1 Number of meal times per day
The Autopetfeeder is capable of feeding your pet 8 times per day. You can set the ON time and the OFF
time for the feeder 8 times per day. This will give you control over the amount of food you feed your pet
and also the time you pet is fed. By pressing PROG button you will enter into programming mode. The
display will now show 1ON . This means program #1 and ON time (time when the feeder turns ON) By
pressing the PROG button again the display will change to 1OFF . This means program #1 and OFF time
(time when the feeder turns OFF) The time between ON and OFF determines the quantity of food fed to
the pet by the Autopetfeeder. By pressing PROG repeatedly we can program up to 8 times i.e. 8ON and 8OFF
2.3.1 Setting ON and OFF Time
The pet feeder is capable of feeding different sizes and shapes of pet food. Hence, the quantity of food
dispensed per minute changes. It is advised that you measure the quantity of food that your pets consume
for every schedule by testing the feeder on the ON mode and pre-determining the amount of time
required to feed your pet.

need to feed your pet a little more than the
schedule time just select this mode. This mode is
also used to prefill the auger on first time use and
measure the quantity of food you schedule every
meal time. This is more like a manual feed.
