EHEIM Professional II Pro 2 Aquarium Canister Filter 38 1-owner | eBay

I have no idea whats going on. That has sometimes helped kick start proesional. Eheim pro II problems wow thanks for all the help, so this morning i just emptied and refilled everything manually.

It should not happen, I guess, but if the canister is overfilled with media to the point where the baskets do not slip nicely ehekm to their full depth on top of one another, proesional 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 Agreed, too much air in the canister, sounds like. 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 profesiojal Glad problem is solved. It was making a bit more noise than I thought it should but figured it was just working the air out.

It sounds like you didn’t get all of the air out before turning it on. Thanks for the help guys.

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.


As you get more used to them, priming becomes easier too. Renee’ Today I’m feeling: Eheim pro II problems Mine will not work unless both hoses are filled. 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. Hope you get it started. Home and Living You Talking to Me? Is this the case with yours? The motor got hot too, because it was running dry. Turn it on then and that should solve the problem I hope you profesionnal some other eheim experts pop in, as these are the only things I’ve needed to try so far.

First, the unit is not sealed completely and rather than dripping, it’s sucking in air.
