pulling it apart and cleaning the impeller is the only maintenance I have ever had to do. If that dosen't work look into a replacement.

If there isn't any trash in the impeller chamber, you have a defective PH. These are the best inexpensive PH's available IMO. I have some that are 6 years old and still running. Shouldn't be any problem to get it warrantied.
