FEEDER PORTION ADJUSTMENT (QUICK SET-UP) please refer to manual for more details.


  1. Make sure feeder is empty after assembly to see gate to roller/drum opening.
  2. Adjust the opening (aperture) between the drum/roller and the flexible gate to be slightly at or below the largest size of the dry food used.
  3. Drop about a 1/8 cup of kibbles (flakes or pellets if aquarium or koi fish feeder) into the feeder to see how well they are retained. A few will drop through, which is ok, but they should stop dropping through when finished filling. If not, close the gate a tiny bit more like 1/4 turn.
  4. Quickly poor rest of kibbles, pellets or flakes into the feeder to at least the top of first extension.
  5. Plug the feeder’s power supply directly into an outlet (no timer).
  6. The feeder should run. See how much food was dispensed. Use the little plastic screwdriver you were given to adjust the feed time controller. If too much, turn the controller shaft under the rubber plug to the left about a half turn and then momentarily tap the small yellow reset switch. If not enough, turn the shaft to the right some more and tap the reset switch again. See how much food dispensed. Repeat as needed until desired portion is achieved.
  7. Once your super feeder has been adjusted for desired portion size, plug the power supply into a timer or Wi-Fi plug after it has been programmed separately as per timer instructions. Program the timer or Wi-Fi plug to come on at desired time of day for a couple of minutes or more, just long enough to make sure the feeder completes its own cycle. Always make sure the timer is programmed for at least two minutes of "off" between feed cycles to assure feeder reset. If programming our ACDT-20 or ACDT-19 digital timer, make sure you set it to "Auto and Off" mode when done for automatic mode. No lights should remain illuminated in the feeder and should remain off until the timer turns on to trigger and power the feeder. The feeder will only run for the amount of time you originally set it to run irrelevant of how long the external timer stays on.

NEVER adjust portion size solely with the large black aperture adjustment screw. The black nylon screw is ONLY for adjusting the gate to drum (also referred to as roller) gap to fit a specific pet food size.

Happy Super Feeding!
