Pdofesional believe that’s part of the priming process. THis worked for a little but then it just stopped pushing air or water out. Hopefully there wasn’t too much air in there and having it run for an hour might be burning the motor up.

That has sometimes helped kick start mine.

So if it’s not doing that, I suspect it’s not primed properly. My 20028 suggestion was going to be if the hoses were around the profeisonal way. I have found out since though, that if you re-lube the workings of the self priming thing, this helps. You can actually open the canister and fill it manually or siphon from the input tube from the tank into the canister to fill it. Eheim pro II problems wow thanks for all the help, so this morning i just emptied and refilled everything manually.

When you’re priming it, you need to keep pushing down on the primer until you see bubbles coming out of the outputs and inputs. First, the unit is not sealed completely and rather than dripping, it’s sucking in air.


Crossing my fingers by the time i get back home today it will still be going. But it has to be a primeing problem. I tried to re-lube the canister o-ring thing they tell you to do in the manuel. Note that air should not enter a correctly sealed system, turning the unit off should result only in siphon and back siphon to the canister.

If these are not on properly, particularly on the input end, you can also “suck air” into the system.

Thanks for the help guys. Hope you get it started.

The time now is If all these don’t work, then I am stumped. Renee’ Today I’m feeling: Eheim pro II problems The approach explained in the following thread worked for me http: It’s possible the unit is faulty, of course, but most of the time when I’ve seen this having taken in my share of “broken” filters it is because the canister is overfilled.

eeim Thanks for the help, if this works who really knows what was the problem since i have manually refilled it once before and let it “self” prime once as well. Now, “sealing” may not only be the canister. It sounds like you didn’t get all of the air out before turning it on.

For a filter to be primed, the cannister must be full of water and both hoses should also be eeim. Maybe someone else can chime in Then outta no where the outlet will drain out and it will just stop.

Oh well, thanks again. However, after an hour or so its making a ton of noise. If, after doing this, it still works prfesional a bit then stops there are a couple of possibilities. Some of the hardware “elbows” that come with some Eheim models have fill caps. I go to check it out and in doing so it just shuts off.

Last edited by FLGirl; at It should not happen, I guess, but if the canister is overfilled with media to the point where the baskets do not slip nicely and to their full depth on top of one another, physical pressure is place on the intake portion of the motor and, for whatever reason, it stops working properly and does what you describe.

Eheim pro II problems no not the case as of right now. All times are GMT After the unit stops pushin water back into the tank, this should be evident by leakage or by there being air in the canister.

Is this the case with yours? Turn it on then and that should solve the problem Eheim pro II problems Are you sure it is primed properly.
