In the source code you have:
//this is used to setup the delay
//count = 171 //uncomment this to set the max delay to 3 hours

So if you change count to 580 and uncomment it it would do the fix....

The example of code you provided isn't populating. I might suggest doing a search for just that portion (change time intervals) and see if you can find am example that matches a line in your sample you found. See if you can adjust it and then test it.

What's the downside of automatic dog bowls?

The main issue with automatic dog bowls is that they make sure your dog always has food available. This may sound really good, but it can lead your dog to over-eat and gain too much weight. I believe that feeding your dog 2-3 times per day is a better option than free-feeding.

Where can I find an automatic dog feeder that exercises portion control?

There are so many styles and brands of automatic dog feeders available. You can find them at your local pet supply stores or online. Here are a few that I think are worth checking out. We have the first one (LeBistro Electronic Feeder) and we absolutely love it.

What is an automatic waterer?

An automatic waterer is a tool that systematically dispenses your dogs water. They are a great tool to ensure your dog stays hydrated at all times. They are especially beneficial for families who may not be in the home for long periods during the day. Water continuously circulates through a filter, keeping the water fresh and bacteria free.

My Automatic dog feeder has stopped dispensing food

Automatic feeders are usually powered by batteries; firstly check that the batteries are working as it is highly likely that they have run out. If the batteries need replacing you should be able to find them at your local store.
