The feeder takes two (2) 1.5v AAA batteries. Any reference to alternate voltages is incorrect.

The description is wrong (or at least poorly stated). Right now as I look at it, it says, "Requires 2 AAA batteries and 1 5V battery, not included."

It should have stopped at "Requires 2 AAA batteries ." There are no other batteries required or possible. Of course, each AAA battery is 1.5 volts, but that is redundant with saying it's a AAA battery. :)

Take the batteries out, pull the drum off, take the cap the the drum off and run it under water. Do not use any soap or chemicals as it will be in contact with your fishes food.

I clean mine by removing the food tray and wiping it down. You can run water through and let it air dry. The only way to turn it off other than removing the batteries and having to reprogram or removing the programmed feeding times would be to close the feeding door. The program will still turn the feeder but no food will come out.

Remove the battery cover and slide the switch to turn off.
Cleaning-remove the tray and rinse well with clean water and dry thoroughly I use a stiff paint brush to sweep away the food residue then rinse the base carefully..

No, the min you can set it to is once daily. Perhaps if you plugged it into a timer that you could program to only turn on every three days....

The feeder is a daily feeder, since there is no way to program it based on calendar days. You can set up to 4 daily feeding schedules, but not weekly/monthly.

How long the feeder will feed depends on how much food you allow through the shoot each feeding. There is an adjustable regulator to allow only a little food or a lot so it really depends on how open you set it.

answer 2
Since there is an adjuster for serving amount, as well as settings for how many times a day it feeds (1-4), it will depend on your settings.

I would estimate the drum could hold up to 0.5 oz of flaked food. If you fill it very full, I would recommend hitting the manual feed button a couple of times to test and be sure that you haven't overpacked it (the food needs to roll a bit for the feeder to work properly).

Once you install the batteries and set the feeding mode(s), the feeder is working. There are no continuous moving parts, so the only time you will see the feeding barrel move is when it gets to the feeding time and then it activates the barrel to rotate 360 degrees slowly.

answer 2
Just put batteries in and set the clock and feed times according to the instructions.

One point you might find helpful - for each of the available feeding times (labelled 1 - 4 on the lcd), you can select: one down-arrow, two down-arrows or no down-arrows. These correspond to one rotation, two rotations or no rotatations, respectively. The rotations occur at the specified time for that feeding number and are spaced by one minute.

The instructions don't really come out and say how you turn some feeding times off. The answer is to choose no down arrow for the selected feeding time slots to turn it off for that slot.
