This morning I was working on my 40G and moved the Rena 2" to the right under my stand. About 1 hour later I noticed a lot of water coming from under the stand. The water was flowing from the hole where the power cord goes into the motor casing on top of the filter.

Anyone had this happen to them and is it ok to take the 4 screws off the head and try to fix it myself? I was in the process of pulling up all the plants and doing my first scape on this tank. Now I got an Amazonia soup with the plants in 2 buckets and a leaking filter!

Thanks,

No, it's actually coming out of the hole where the power cord comes out of. I took the top off and tilted it over the sink and it just flows out of the power cord hole. There are 4 screws on top of the Rena filter head that appears to provide access to the motor. I don't know if that will allow me access to the area to reseal the power cord or not.

If anyone has ever opened up one of these Rena filter motor areas I would appreciate a comment whether that is difficult or not.

Thanks,

lescarpentier, thanks for the info. The unit is new so I didn't even think about the orings. I have some underwater camera silicone grease and will regrease them.

Edited : I lightly regreased all user orings and that apparently did the trick. Thanks for the help everyone.

Thanks,
