(04-22-2019, 11:50 PM)Hi RobI have wired as per instruction but it will not do a manual feedThe Eheim feeder is powered on, and i can press the manual button on the feeder itself and it will do a manual feedFrom the controller i can see the feed fish logo appear on the top but the feeder itself when i test for a manual feed but no rotation on the Eheim feeder I have check the wiring and make sure port 14 is enabled Could it be a different signal wiring  Rob F Wrote: Hi, here's some instructions showing how to wire up an Eheim Auto Feeder to the controller, here's a link to the feeder.

Hi Fred, do you have the feeder enabled on the feed settings page? Off is default.

Are both settings enabled? Check you check the voltage on controller using +3.3v pin and the feeder pin? There will only be voltage when you press the auto feed button and it'll will only show for 2 seconds.

Which controller board are you using? Can you see a Rev version under the logo on PCB?

Ah nice glad you figured it out, a little surprised it was a connector as they seem pretty good.
