Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If the feeder isn't shutting off it could be because it isn't wired properly. It would be connected to the LWCO (low water cutoff). When the LWCO detects that the water level is tto low it will turn on the feeder. Once the water level is high enough the LWCO will turn the feeder off. Could also be due to a faulty LWCO.
