I have three koralias, I have two 1050's alternating and one 1400 on every other alternation/cycle. FYI I have a wavemaker and I have never had an issue with them turning backwards which seems to be a common issue.

I just woke up to one of my 1050's running backwards and it actually broke the grill and rubber bumper right off.

Did you call them to see what they would do for your troubles?

Of my 5 Koralias, 2 of them will go in reverse. One of them did break the grill some as well. In reality, I don't worry about it at all. When you live in the middle of the forest, you have many blackouts/brownouts. It has become an annyoing second nature to just only slightly plug them back in until they return to the regular movement.

This is a common problem with koralias that i too personally have experienced. Email Hydor and they will send you 3 free grilles priority mail that will solve the reverse running. They are pretty speedy about it.
