    So I bought this job slimmer used & it was running fine for about a week then one day I came in & it wasn’t working I unplugged it & tore it apart & I found a little piece of plastic or something in the propeller. I got that out & needless to say .. it hasn’t worked properly since. I’ve tried on about 4 attempts to get it but I can’t. Now I’ve got to the point where it will make bubbles but not nearly small as they were before bubbles are far to big to create a “foam”, or even a cloudy appearance, if you get what I’m saying.

    I’m tempted to just buy a new one but I would hate to if this is a simple fix !

    Thanks!

    Yea well that’s what I was thinking of doing but when I looked a few weeks ago all of the pumps look to be shaped differently, which doesn’t necessarily mean they wouldn’t fit but the one I have appears to be larger.

    I’m assuming that your assumption is that the pump is shot?
