Auto feeders are a waste. If the malfunction and dump all the food in then you will have an ammonia problem. I only feed my fish 3x a week and they are fat and happy. So don't worry and do a pwc before you leave.

I've had an automatic feeder and they worked perfectly. Call the AG's office or the manufacture for a refund if they do.

they will be fine for sure, I've gone away for 11 days before and didnt feed, although i think my ghost knife ate a few largish congo tetras. My 2 large discus didnt eat at all.

Definetly dont use the weekend feeder blocks or vacation block things, they are horrible and will cloud your water even though they say they wont

Agree with the others, no feeding necessary while you're gone. Please accept my condolences on your loss.
