After about an hour of tinkering and debating on returning it, I figured out the motor was working fine, it seemed to be the elastic band was too tight - that or the roller was stuck. I put some cooking oil on the bottom roller and everything started working just fine.
It's been less than 24 hours and my youngest cat started crying at me this morning - he never talks. I turned the Fling-ama-String on and he was totally happy. It's even getting my oldest cat (14 years old) off his big rear end and exercising.
All in all, the cats love it. I just wished they had send some troubleshooting instructions along with it.
It came with a satiny thin string, but the string eventually started fraying, and then the safety feature would kick in on the toy as it met resistance and the motor would pause. I had to keep getting up to get the toy moving again. I tried cutting the string a little shorter but then the whole string came apart. Instead of chucking the toy, you can buy satin cord to replace it for very cheap or go with a flat shoelace if you want to worry less about your cats ingesting it. I've tried both options, though I did notice my cats were less interested in the shoelace as compared to the satin cord.
There are two features I'd like to see in future versions. One would be a timer that turns the toy off after a certain period. Sometimes, if the string gets stuck and the toy pauses you can forget that you haven't actually turned it off and waste battery life. Second, I'd love if they made some kind of snap on plastic cover for safety reasons so the cats can't access the string when the toy is turned off, so I wouldn't have to constantly pull it off the door to store away from them during downtime.
Unfortunately, it only lasted 4 times before it died.
My electrical engineer husband thinks it's the internal switch that allows cats to grab the string and then let go. He tried fresh batteries, etc., and the product still works, but not long enough for our kitten/cats to grab it more than one time before it dies again.
Whatever the reason, it's pathetic to find a toy that cats really love that breaks after a few plays or just one.
This would be a most wonderful cat toy if it were more robust.
