My Fx5 is stopping and starting randomly?

Recommended Posts

I've had a similar experience. The problem I had was because the filter sponges in the top and middle trays were filthy and must have been prohibiting flow and inturn the FX5 brain was attempting to clear the obstruction, much it like how it deals with trapped air, by turning off an on.

Once I cleaned the sponges thoroughly it came good.

Read the book if you got one

It runs for 2 mins then stops 2 mins

to let air out. It also stops once every

24 hrs to do the same

doesnt matter if there is air, no air, clogged, or not clogged it will stop every 24 hours for 2 mins regardless. just bought a fx5 the other day as my cannister started leaking currently getting fixed under warranty. wont mention the brand for now.
