- Controller does not light up. Check and make sure the 120 volt ac power supply is plugged in.
- BLUE LED SOLID – Indicates warming mode, LED stays on. In extreme cold weather conditions, use an entrance closure to reduce the cold air entering the hive.
- BLUE & RED LED FLASHING – During Mite mode, both LEDs continue after 40 minutes, unit has timed out, this indicates unable to reach mite mode temperature. Check the hive entrance and confirm that the supplied closure stick is properly placed to reduce the air flow into the hive. The stick is notched for the black cord and allows sufficient air flow for the bees. The tolerance for different hives may vary and you may have to seal (duct tape) the ends of the closure stick to hive bottom board. The ambient temperature must be above 60 degrees F.
- Note: ambient temperature must be at 70 degrees F to run mite mode, and the hive closures stick must stay in place.
- If the unit times out check for any cracks in the hive that may allow air to enter.
- Unplug the power cord wait 1 minute reconnect the power unit led lights will flash 6 times press mode button start mite mode again.
- RED LED FLASHING – During mite mode LED may come on. Do not be alarmed the temperature is slightly above the setting of 106 degrees F. by a fraction of a degree, the controller accuracy is ±.1° C and in a matter of minutes the controller will return to a FLASHING GREEN LED.
- All LED lights flashing simultaneously. Make sure the temperature sensor, which is mounted in the hive body, is connected. This indicates sensor failure and probably occurred at start up.
- Sensor may not be connected coming from the hive body to the Controller
- The sensor cable may have been damaged, creating an electrical short, or possibly the supplied staple cutting into internal cable wire during installation.
Note: Review the Modes of Operation Sheet in Reference to the Led Lights
