First, what is the output joule rating of your energizer? How many feet of fence are you trying to power? If you have too large of an energizer, it could be pushing the energy places you don’t want. If you have an energizer that is correct for the size of your fence, you may have a dead short on your fence, causing the energy to go straight to your ground. I would start by checking the voltage on your energizer when it is not hooked up. If you are reading over 4,000 volts, hook your fence back up, and try to identify were you are losing your power. A common place to start is to check for cracked insulators or poor lead-out wires.

For warranty repair, simply mail your energizer to Kencove Farm Fence, Attn: Repairs, 344 Kendall Rd. Blairsville, PA 15717. Include your name and phone number in the box with the energizer. Once it has been repaired, we will ship it back to you. Most other brand energizers do carry at least a one-year warranty. Follow the steps above to get your energizer repaired under warranty. We do not recommend doing any repairs yourself because it will void all warranties. Give us a call at 1-800-536-2683 with any questions. Thank you.

Do you have a voltmeter? If not, we highly recommended investing in one. Just to clarify your question, are you saying your fence has voltage on it even if your energizer is disconnected completely from your fence? If so, is your fence constructed under high-voltage power lines? This could be a cause for unwanted power on a fence. For more advice, please give us a call at 1-800-536-2683.

I have had it for 7 months. Now the switch is not going on(blinking red) every time I go in and out. Sometimes I have to click the switch several times to get it to work(flash red). Do I need to change the on/off switch? Ifsowheredo I get one?

Your best bet is to use underground wire from your energizer to your fence. Check out our Double-Wall Insulated Wire (item code: GU50 for 50′ length), which is available in a few different lengths.

I have it running through a hose so we dont step on it and looks like it melted the top of the hose.

Do you know what the output joule rating is on your new energizer? Also, how many feet of wire are you trying to electrify? If your energizer is too large, you may be pushing unwanted voltage onto other parts of your fence even though the wire is not touching anything. This is caused by induction. You also may not have enough ground rods for the size of your energizer. You need at least three 3-foot ground rods per output joule of energizer. Depending on your ground conditions, you may need additional ground rods. Do you have a voltmeter? This will be helpful in determining if you have an induction problem, or if you need to add more ground rods.

I went and exchanged it for one that plugs in so I didn’t have that issue but it isn’t working either. I have unhooked it multiple times and reconnected it different ways because everyone says to do it a different way. We have it grounded. It’s a single wire ran around the top of the pen to keep dogs from climbing out. The wire isn’t touching anything it’s not suppose to but still not working….
