Q.What causes a buzzing SOUND and light to stay red.
A.

If the unit is buzzing without a catch, we recommend cleaning it to make sure that there is no debris on the metal plates causing the trap to think a rodent is inside.

To do this:

  • Turn the trap off and remove the batteries.
  • Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. If needed, use a wire brush to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating.
  • Allow the interior and exterior of the kill chamber to air dry completely before reassembling.
  • Bait the trap.
  • Re-insert the batteries and turn the trap on.

 

Q.Will the trap work out doors in rainy weather?
A.

No, this trap is for indoor use only.

Q.My Victor rat trap light blinks green when turned on but there is no buzz. Unit is brand new.
A.

This trap may have a slight buzzing noise when the unit is first turned on. As long as the green light flashes once when the trap is first turned on, the unit is working correctly.

Q.I recently purchased a victor electronic rat trap Model M241 it worked great for about one month or 30 rats but it’s now showing the LED green light and The LED red light at the same time and its not working. I will like to know if there is something I can do or what do the lights mean?
A.

A red light indicates low battery life. We recommend cleaning the trap and replacing the batteries. To clean the trap, please follow the instructions below :

  • Turn the trap off and remove the batteries.
  • Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. If needed, use a wire brush to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating.
  • Allow the interior and exterior of the kill chamber to air dry completely before reassembling.
  • Bait the trap.
  • Re-insert the batteries and turn the trap on.
