    Hi

    Need some advice please.

    The impeller on my 6045 keeps coming off the shaft for some reason.

    Is there anything I can do?

    You can contact the Tunze Sponsors @George or @Anita, they might be able to help you.

    I've just had a look at mine, when you say the "impellor comes off the shaft", do you mean just the white plastic propellor part is coming off the front of the impellor? I can't see how the whole impellor can come off the shaft unless the front of the pump casing is broken and missing the middle section that holds the impellor in place?

    It is just the plastic part that keeps coming off.

    I click it back over the shaft but after a while it comes off again.

    It must be worn then. I would be tempted to just superglue it back on, lol. But first see if you can get a replacement impellor from the local agents. I see they are available overseas and on ebay so hopefully they carry stock locally.

    You quite correct Dean and we always have replacement stocks for the 6045.
