We have the chickentender coop door with solar/battery for a few months now and have had nothing but trouble with it. For almost 400$ it’s a piece of junk. But now that we have it I was wondering if anyone else had it and was able to get it to work reliable. When it’s working it’s great but it is so unreliable that we have to check every night if it closed or not that we might as well have a manual door. Our problem is that it goes from a fully charged battery to empty without warning. We contacted cooptender and they said it’s the fuse, so we exchanged it after that is was working briefly and that went on for months .... on off on off. Before I take this thing apart and salvage the parts (motor, gear drive solar panel) and put it on a good old fashioned timer I was wondering if someone can give us some hints to get this thing working after all.
