Hi,

I just pulled out an plug of an eheim filter to do some maintenance, and ended up with broken plug prong :(

The question is; (Sorry, I have poor knowledge in electric) Is it dangerous if I use it after replacing the wire and the plug? and are there any other way I can fix this without replacing the whole motor?

If you are confident about wiring a new plug on, it will be fine. As Mr clock off mentions, as it won't be a sealed unit anymore then make sure it has no chance of getting wet.

Judicious use of some electrical tape wrapped around the new junction point, effectively ‘sealing’ the cable to the new plug might be a good extra precaution.
