So I was heading to bead tonight and noticed Heidi's tank was really quiet. Apparently the power supply has given up the ghost and can't spin the pump up to full speed before it shuts down. I can even hear some noise coming from the power supply. It gets louder as the pump spins up.

If anyone has one to loan or sell, or know of where i can find one locally, please let me know.

Thanks.

Where did you get the spares from Joe?

I ordered them from Amazon. I got two of these http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E36W0LY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage

There might be better deals or other ones that would work. I used Perk rewards to get them quite a while back.

How did you identify that the power supply was the issue? I have a dc6000 that worked for about 4 months and then stopped. Power lights still worked. It would barely start to ramp (real slow) and then stop.

That sounds like a bad motor issue to me

I had a similar problem with a dc9000 and a dc12000 after about 6 months of use. The ceramic shaft bearings had fused to shaft. Soaked impeller assembly in vinegar solution for a couple hours. Still using pumps now but I do a vinegar soak every few months and it hasn't happened again.

Similar situation other than i could hear a noise ramping up in the power supply and then everything would shut down to include the lights on the controller. It seemed to ramp up normally but would only get half way before possibly tripping something and i could hear water being pushed though the system so the pump seemed to be working. Pulling the power cable from the power brick and plugging it back in would reset the process. I borrowed the power supply from Joe and it worked wonderfully. Just received the one i ordered today so will need to do some work this weekend.
