    My electric fence isn't working and I'm stumped. I have a solar kit from premier. Was working, but now isn't. Bought in June.

    Energizer light is flashing but when I test fence, nothing. Disconnected from fence and can't get a read off energizer with fence tester.

    Diodes look fine, assume battery is fine as the energizer light flashes when it's hooked to it.

    Ideas?

    Call Premier; it might be a defective unit. Mary

    I just really don't want to send it back and wait for new one. Hope it doesn't come to that

    Got it working. Took it all apart and tightened it all up and it's working great.
