I have a Masterflex 7523-50 that’s suddenly displaying an “Err 1” message and stopped working.

when I press the start/stop button, all I hear is a “click”, the motor will not spin and the error is displayed.

I checked the manual and all is says is to press start/stop again, which isn’t very helpful. I emailed Cole Palmer technical support and all they told me is that they don’t support this model anymore and sent me a link to buy a new pump that was $2655... no, thank you

does anyone have any idea whether this pump can be fixed or something I should try?

thanks

I would just buy any number of reef-specific peristaltic pumps for a MUCH more reasonable price. Alternately, you can see if there are some medical equipment forums that can help.
 

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
