There is a newer model of feeder motor being used. The newer version can be identified by its having two fuses. (The older model has only one fuse). If a newer model, the included instructions may not be correct on page 27 of the instruction booklet. Line 8 of "Setting the Feeding Times" has changed. For the new models, pushing the "PROGRAM" button is not required. Wait several seconds and Feed #1 will set, then push the "+" button once to display and set Feed #2. Repeat for the remaining feed times as desired. You are setting feed times per 24 hours. Big Game Treestands feeders are designed to be used with corn. Other feed types may work, but may cog or corrode the unit, damaging the feed and/or the feeder itself.
