I have a Easy Fill tripod feeder,I purchased it new in October last year.I noticed that the feeder had stopped working.Today I took it apart to find out why it had failed.As I took the motor assembly apart I was surprised to see that it was full of water and that the bearings had seized up on the motor due to the water.I was lucky enough to free the motor up and fix it.I believe this water was due to condensation.So I drilled a small hole in the bottom of the motor assembly for future water problems.If you have one of these(I believe they use this same assembly on several of their feeders)you may want to check to see if yours is having the same problem before it quits.Hopefully now mine will continue to work.Hope this helps someone from having a problem.If you decide to drill a hole in the bottom of yours without taking it apart,the motor is very small.If you drill 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the center,you should not hit the motor.
