    Hey so the feed mode stopped working on my wp40. It worked fine for the first few weeks. Now I hold the feed button. The led moves over to feed mode, but then as soon as I release feed mode it goes back to normal operation.

    Also the "sensor" light blinks all the time. Every time the powerhead pulses.

    Any ideas?

    I don't use my feed mode much, but when I do- I drink DosXX.

    Oh, I mean,

    I just push the button once, I don't hold it down. Have you tried that?

    Pretty positive you have to hold it on the new models.

    Sent reefbreeders a pm a few weeks ago no response. Hope logan will reply to this. Use feed mode every day but now I have to manually unplug the controller. Kinda annoying.

    Would ramping it down (downramping?) work for this?

    I hope you get it fixed proper soon.

    Hi, it sounds like a new controller is in order. Don't you have my email? logan@reefbreeders.com is the fastest way to get a hold of me. So far we have had very few issues with the jebao pumps, about 3%.
