Automatic Chicken Coop Door


Some maintenance of the electric Automatic Chicken Coop Door may include replacing the string that lifts and lowers the door. This is a cheap and easy fix. The only tools you will need are a screw driver and a knife. Also three and a half feet (at most) of fishing line (10 pound test line or higher recommended).

Here is a Youtube Video that includes how to replace the string in a step by step process along with directions for setting the actuators (black dial) of the motor. These tell how high and low to reel the door. Without setting this the door may reel up too high all over again causing the motor to urn up. It is extremely important that these be set as well.
