Are you able to take a reading on your fence line? What is the voltage between your energizer and fence line? If your energizer is putting out the correct voltage you may have a dead short on your line somewhere. Try walking your fence line and look for cracked insulators, underground wiring, or debris on your fence line. Let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Sounds like you have excellent grounding conditions! If your energizer is not putting out the correct voltage you may have an issue with your battery, solar panel, or charge controller as well. Have a wonderful week!

What type of fence do you have installed? Do you know the joule rating for your energizer? Is your dog touching the ground when he touches the wire? A few things could be going on. 1.) Your energizer isn’t powerful enough. 2.) You need a higher fence 3.) You need the dog to touch the ground and hot wires to feel the shock and complete the circuit. One way around this is creating a posi/negative system where the dog would need to touch a hot and ground wire at the same time.

The fence is only 90 feet long I had one grounding rod already installed so I install the fence connected it to the one rod. I can grab the fence with my hand and after a few seconds I feel a pulse of electricity. It’s uncomfortable but for my dog not much. I assume it’s not working right or I actually do need three grounding rods even for $.95. Do you think it’s broken since I bought it used or the fact that I don’t have three groundomg rods?

How large of an area are you fencing in? The leaking voltage on your neutral wires, posts, and barn can be from two things. 1.) Your energizer is far to large for the area of fence. We recommend 1 joule of power for every mile of fence. 2.) You do not have enough grounding/ your ground bed is not sufficient. Has it been extremely dry in your area? You may need to move your ground bed or add additional ground rods. Give us a call if you need any additional assistance! 1-800-KENCOVE

we have a very old system in use and recently have been burning up fencer boxes like there going out of style. the last one lasted 3 months.
after moving the grounding rod and moving where the wires connect about 3 times and getting a new box, now we have everything charged and hot! wires that are not connected to anything are hot, posts are hot, gates are hot, even the building is reading a charge. why would this be? we are no strangers to electric fence and systems but this has got us stumped! we cant figure this one out! HELP!!!!!

Is there anything on it? Is your ground bed working? If you are unable to find a short on your line and have sufficient grounding try calling the manufacture of the energizer.

Check out this video to test your ground bed. If you have sufficient grounding you may have a failing insulator, underground cable, splice, connection, or some type of debris on your fence line. Let us know if you need any additional assistance 1-800-KENCOVE

The addition of the aluminum wire if attached correctly should not have impacted your fence energizer. Is there a short on your new piece of fence? Are there weeds or an insufficient insulator on a post?
