Eheim 2026 priming problem
I have an Eheim 2026 proII which has been running fine for 2 years until I did a water change. When i refilled the tank and tried priming it some bubbles came out of both pipes. I then turned it on and it rattled like crazy. I turned it off, primed again, still rattling. I then took the head off and cleaned impeller and shaft. It then started ok for 5 seconds then started rattling.http://www.fishforum.com/../ubb/mad.gif
I did this 6 more times until i was mighty crosshttp://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/im...ilies/bang.gif I have an inline heater so even though I have a secondary filter the tank was cooling down so had to dig out spare heater GGGrrrrrr!
On the 9th time of taking impellor out i broke the shaft so gave up.
My arms are now aching as the priming button takes a massive push to get it to work. Is this normal?
Any ideas pleasehttp://www.tropicalfish.site5.com/ubb/smilies/cwm31.gif help!
