If you are reading under 6,000 volts at the terminal we recommend sending in your unit.

Energizers do not constantly energize your wire, that would be very dangerous! Rather they set out pulse of voltage.

The energizer is a Zareba Red Snap’r 66c. The energizer clicks loudly every couple seconds. There’s still voltage going through the line, but it a pulse, not constant. There is no short along the fence line (weeds, insulator connections etc), so I’m not sure why it’s releasing load. When I disconnect all the wiring from the energizer and plug it back in, it still does the same loud ticking which makes me think it’s the energizer itself that is faulty, not my wiring.

Any ideas or advice?

I bought a new charger since the old one was 17 years old. If I just hook up the fence wire the charger appears to work. If I attach the ground wire it does not flash. I walked the fence and can’t see any problems. There is only one grounding wire that I see and the connections are good. It has worked for many years. Ideas?

Is there are a heavy weed load on your fence line? If so there is a lot more moisture in the evening and at night on the weeds that would cause a considerable drop in voltage.

Day time its working fine. But night time automatically voltage drop 6.6 KV to 1.5 KV. Afterwards its maintaining 1.5 KV. Please tell any solution for my problem. We changed Earth Pit. But no Result.

It sounds like you are having a grounding issue. Is the ground frozen where you are located? Do the sheep have heavy wool? Wool acts as an insulator. Was you helper wearing rubber shoes?
If the ground is frozen you will more than likely have to add more ground rods or create a posi/neg system. Check out this blog on Winter Grounding!

But there is no shock to the sheep and my helper grabbed the line twice and held it…no shock. How can 3 diff. Tests show voltage going through wire, yet no shock ? I heard one sheep get zapped when it tried to pass through and the wire hit a t post. Surely this is a clue.
