Great little pump but the impeller seems to stop running every few days. Can anything be done to keep it running?

Clean it well and place it where it cannot take in sand or debris. The pump is very low power, it will stop when jammed as it isn't a big motor that could grind on with some debris inside. Usually the cause will be fine sand getting in or some built up calcium and if it is just calcium a thorough cleaning will solve it. Otherwise raise it so it cannot take in sand that gets stirred up.

Thanks, It's sad it stops so easily. It did it right out of the box. I almost returned it.

It is an unfortunate trade off and it may be that the root issue is the propeller fits too tight. To get the energy efficiency and low heat, the low power means the motor does not have much oomph. If you had this problem since new and you don't have reason to believe it is due to fine sand and debris, I would guess the propeller fits too tight and I can send a replacement.
