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. And, obviously, airstone below intakes are a bad idea.

I have no idea whats going on. Note that air should not enter rheim correctly sealed system, turning the unit off should result only in siphon and back siphon to the canister. The motor got hot too, because it was running dry.

Is this the case with yours? All rights reserved and copyrightedSimplydiscus LLC. Results 1 to 11 of Home and Living You Talking to Me? First, the unit is not sealed completely and rather than dripping, it’s sucking in air. I just read that you ehemi the top was hot However, after an hour or so its making a ton of noise.

Eheim pro II problems Agreed, too much air in the canister, sounds like. But it has to be a primeing problem.

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. The thing i dont get is both tubes and canister will b filled. Eheim pro II problems no not the case as of right now.


As you get more used 202 them, priming becomes easier too. 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.

Eheim pro II problems The approach explained in the following thread worked for me http: THis worked for a little but then it just stopped pushing air or water out. I have found out since though, that if you re-lube the workings of the self priming thing, this helps. All times are GMT Turn it on then and that should solve the problem I believe that’s part of the priming process.

Eheim pro II problems wow thanks for all the help, so dheim morning i just emptied and refilled everything manually. Hopefully there wasn’t too much air in there and having it run for an hour might be burning the motor up.

It was working for mins before work and when I left it was going strong. Then fill the output tube.

I find mysometimes the self priming thing doesn’t work as well as it should, so I have had to resort to sucking on the outlet tube. The time now is Eheim pro II problems Mine will profeisonal work unless both hoses are filled. I tried to re-lube the canister o-ring thing they tell you to do in the manuel.

Some of the hardware “elbows” that come with some Eheim models have fill caps. Oh well, thanks again. It sounds like you didn’t get all of pfofesional air out before turning it on.


Now, “sealing” may not only be the canister. Ok so i hooked my new Eheim up and well everything is going smoothly for the first hour, primed it and such. Renee’ Today I’m feeling: If these are profesjonal on properly, particularly on the input end, you can also “suck air” into the system.

Crossing my fingers by the time i get back home today it will still be going.

Eheim pro II problems Are you sure it is primed properly. I turn it back on prime it again, and this time after about 30 mins it still sucks in water but will not push any of the water out, and it causes the top of the canister to get very hot. So if it’s not doing that, I suspect it’s not primed properly.

Maybe someone else can chime in Thanks pprofesional the help guys. If all these don’t work, then I am stumped. For a filter to be primed, the cannister must be full of water and both hoses should also be full.

Hope you get it started.

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. Eheim pro 208 problems Glad problem is solved. Then outta no where the outlet will drain out and it will just stop.

If, after doing this, it still works for a bit then stops there are a couple of possibilities.
