if you have a fully charge battery, you want to clip both negative and positive end of the discharger to the same points on the battery's connector. THen, press that large yellow button and watch until all the LED lights are gone. The discharger will stop working by that time and your battery should be at the 5.4V (6 cell) mark.

NOPE. Especially when the discharger thinks the battery's power is waaaaayyyy below 0.90V/cell (equals to 5.4 Volts). I have reactor 30 and it is a lot faster to discharge than the "20" but basically it is the same thing

If it has enough juice to be over the cutoff, it will come on...which is probably what happened to you. When the lights go off and you hear the pop (of the button releasing), then your batts are discharged at or below the cutoff. No additional discharging is required unless you want to put them on an equalization tray. I believe it is recommended that you remove the batts from the discharger as soon as the lights go off because the fan will continue to draw power from your batts and you don't want to run them down too low.
