Bowl Feeder Trouble Shooting Guide

Is your bowl feeder not working properly? If so, then you should read our ‘guide to trouble shooting the most common problems associated with vibratory bowl feeders’. Free Download -> Bowl Feeder Trouble Shooting Guide

Nearly all vibratory bowl feeders run trouble free for long periods of time requiring little or no attention and without maintenance; but as with any mechanical device problems do arise from time to time.

The following information is a detailed guide on trouble shooting some of the most common problems found with vibratory bowl feeders. It is not specific to any particular manufacturer’s product as it is deemed that the majority of electro-magnetically driven vibratory bowl feeders, or vibratory parts feeders as they are sometimes referred to, operate along the same principles.


Here are four of the most common problems that can occur within a vibratory bowl feeder:-

  1. Declining feed rate due to low amplitude. This will usually occur gradually over a period of time.
  2. A phenomenon commonly known as a “dead spot” appears within the bowl feeder. Parts will not feed past a certain point along the track even though they are moving elsewhere within the bowl feeder.
  3. Intermittent operation. The bowl feeder will spontaneously run at excessive amplitude (speed up) or possibly reduced amplitude (slow down) without any apparent cause. Included in this category is for a bowl feeder not to work at all.
  4. Excessive noise within a vibratory bowl feeder.
