I have an almost new (less than 12 mos old) Fluval 204 that won't work now. It was working fine until I took it apart for cleaning. Now I can't get it to pump. I've checked everything - impeller works when plugged in - but nothing pumps when connected to the tank hoses.

Help.....

When you remove the impeller will it spin free on the magnet or does it go about 1/2 turn and stop. It should stop.
Does it have airlock and is unable to touch water to get it moving. sometimes a good gentle shake will get them to start for me. HTH steve

Does the 204 have the prime shaft like the 404 model? I always found it a pita to restart my 404. Had to pump the prime shaft.........plug it in.......pump some more....plug it in several times till I got it to get rid of air in lines and canister. Colleen bought a Ehiem and it has been troubble free and 1 time prime to start.
