Ok thanks. I plugged it in. It primed itself and now shut down as its suppose to. It will turn back on it 2 minutes. Maybe that's what it needed.

Unplug it and raise the intake side of the cannister to let the air out,then replug and level, you may have clogged polish pads.if you reread the conversation we had when you got it i mentioned the air issues

Hello and welcome. First your in the wrong section. There is a salt water section. I'm sure a MOD will step in and move your post. And second this is considered hijacking a thread. It's not on topic. You may want to read the forum rules before posting. You also cant use texting style typing example someone instead of some1 or everyone instead of every1, Just a friendly heads up

But seriously read the rules to the forum and again welcome to AA.
