Thought I share this tip. I have owned 2 of these so far. The first one out of the box the impeller would not spin. I returned it . I got a another one. After about 2 months the same thing happened. I was pissed. I thought about it and said I have nothing to loose. After looking at it I realized what was going on. The metal shaft was wearing the blue plastic impeller. Almost like sandpaper. I took superglue and put glue all over blue impeller shaft and shoved it in magnet. Wow !! Instant fix. Thought I would share if you are in same situation. Works like a charm

I’ve had a couple for a couple of years, no problems with either

Good you were able to fix it though :)
