Acquclear problems

LizzzFish1

So I got a Aquvlear 70 about 8 days ago. It was working perfectly fine when now it works for 5 minutes starts rattling and then stops. I cleaned it, what should I do next? Pls help I think it’s a problem with impeller becuase the magnetic part and the plastic piece always separate but I don’t know it’s my first aquaclear pls help.

Hmm, Ive had maybe 7 aquaclears and never had this specific problem. If something is getting stuck in there it could be messing with the propeller. I would see if you cant return it due to malfunction, since its only 8 days old.

Do you have sand or dirt substrate in your tank?

Maybe the intake tube is too low and sucks bits of substrate in over time and getting in the impeller.

Consider taking off the AC70 from the tank, remove the motor assembly and impeller, then use a q-tip to clean out the cavity where the impeller drops into.

Then visually inspect the impeller and the impeller shaft.

Clean it all up and put it back together.

That might help.

Good luck
