What does the alarm "Motor running light" mean?

Claes Updated by Claes

The "motor is running light" alarm indicates that the motor of your FeedCon device is running with a lighter load or consuming less power than usual. This alarm is designed to inform you about the motor's operating condition and is usually triggered when the motor is running without dispensing a significant amount of feed.

There are a few possible reasons for this alarm:

  1. Low feed level: If the feed level in your feeder is low or empty, the motor may run lighter because there is less resistance when dispensing feed. This alarm serves as a reminder to check the feed level and ensure that there is enough feed in the feeder.
  2. Feeder obstruction: The motor may run light if there is an obstruction in the feeder, such as a blockage or clumps of feed. This can restrict the flow of feed and cause the motor to run without effectively dispensing it. It's important to inspect the feeder for any obstructions and clear them if necessary.
  3. Motor malfunction: In some cases, the "motor is running light" alarm may indicate a motor malfunction or failure. If you have ruled out low feed level and feeder obstructions as the cause, it's recommended to contact Nordic Gamekeeper support for further assistance. They can help diagnose the issue and provide guidance on how to resolve it.

When you receive the "motor is running light" alarm, it's important to investigate the potential causes and take appropriate action. This ensures that your FeedCon device operates optimally and effectively dispenses the desired amount of feed.
