View Full Version : Deltec MCE600 wont power on

I had to turn my skimmer pump off to clean it but once I put it back in the tank it wont power back on. Ive disassembled and reassembled it multiple times but i'm not having any luck with it. I tried running it in a bucket of water and can feel a slight vibration from the pump when plugged in but only slightly.

Any ideas what I can do with it? I am worried now as I don't want to be without a skimmer as I carbon dose and don't want to see a huge nitrate spike.

Give it a Rio smack. And start looking to get another impeller at least or a new pump.

Are you certain the base where the impeller sits in the pump is completely clear of debris and there are no calcium deposits?
