A bit off topic, although this is an interesting thread: Has anyone ever had problems with the output of the CFS4 "collapsing"? I went on vacation for 2 weeks, and when I got back the outlet tube, right where it connects, was bent downwards, preventing flow. I have a feeling this is what they are trying to avoid by cutting the tubing. Anyone have other solutions, as I don't want to cut anything?

My Jebo is dead, I scraped away the melted peice that was holding teh impeller in
(the magnet was the part that wouldnt come out.)
all teh plastic around where the impeller was is warped from when it over heated and theres a small hole melted out near the bottom. I dont feel in anyway qualified to try and fix it so im going to eiter sell it or give it away for the part that can be used
tubes,valves,media baskets,etc i think that the impeller itself might even be ok


I have had my tubes collapse on me, I just swiveled the valves and rearranged the tubes until they stayed open

Behind that wall is the motor and armature that enable the magnet/impeller to spin. I don't think it is a good idea unless it can be done without compromising the integrity of the housing wall. You DO NOT want to create any type of leak into the motor housing. You could chance an electrical fire.

WFTM: Haven't had this problem and my hoses are uncut length. What I would do is tie a nylon cord on the hose where it connects to the valves, if this is where the kink is, pull it up and tie it to a higher level(maybe the tank,or a part of the stand or even something screwed in an adjacent wall(small hook). Another idea is to tie a piece of metal clothes hanger to the hose so it lies across the kink.
