View Full Version : help with power head, it seised up.

My protein skimmer stopped working. The propeller seemed to have seised up. When I opened it up it was super hot and the water was steaming out of it. Is there something to do to get it to work again? The magnet feels swollen in the middle. I tried to sand it down a little but it didn't work or I didn't sand it enough. Does anyone have a spare I can use till I can replace it. Any suggestions are appreciated.

What type of skimmer? Sounds like the notorious sedra pump

Not too bad then. The replacement is only $20
