Got a Emperor 280 off of a deal through craigslist with my new tank and when i plug it in nothing happens ... doesnt even make a noise. Anyone have a clue what could be wrong with it? .... outlet i used it on does work.
Does it have the impeller assembly? It is a tubular magnet with what looks like a propeller on top that fits inside the motor - Also does the motor feel like it is slightly vibrating when you plug it in and do you feel any warmth on the motor?
it is setup at my girlfriends so when i go back over there tonight for dinner i am gonna do some tests with the motor and impeller and see whats up but i did try to feel the motor housing when i had it pluged in and didnt feel anything
