If you want to test it, push the feeding time buttons and it will rotate the drum so you can see how much food it will dispense without having to remove the batteries.
ie, put the batteries in after you have loaded the food. Press the one feeding button.. the drum will rotate.
To try it again, press the 2 feeding button, it will rotate again, press 3 feeds it will rotate again.
After your done testing, set to the feeding you want (it will rotate again) then you are done.
As with most of these types of units the amount of food is not precise from rotation to rotation due to the varying size of the food particles. Make sure the food is at the end of the drum where the dispensing happens after you load it up.
One Con is that the battery compartment was not manufactured too well. normally if you have a spring on the negative side of the battery and a flat post connection on the positive. This unit has one of the AA batteries set up properly but the other has the + connection facing the spring. It only works if you put the battery in this way but be sure it is connecting. I think this may be the reason some have said "did not work out of the box", it was due to the awkward post connections for the batteries.
I wouldn't pay full price for this unit, but a sale price of about $30 is fair in my estimation.
I was able to glue it back on, but definitely could have came with better instructions.

Does it's job very well. Went for camping for 3 days and it kept my fish happy. Easy install. Easy operation. Great for pellet sticks for my juvy arowana. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Same problem as many others. Battery terminals look backwards and the one end had to be pried out before I could get it to work. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Dave McIntosh
Tried but dropped into the water and now it's not working. I thought things like this should be water proof.Published 10 months ago by M13l1n
Working great. Excellent for flake food. Very reliable and dispenses just the right amount for my community tank fish. Highly recommended.Published 13 months ago by Iris
Defective. Lights on it did not light up and the food hopper just kept circling to feed for 2 minutes until I took out the batteries.Published 18 months ago by JK
