I have had the 9410 do that once or twice in the last 8 months. For the life of me I can’t remember what I did that caused it. Maybe new filter floss/sock that wasn’t pre rinsed. Hmm. I just turn the pump speed down all the way and the next day I turn it back to where my sweet spot is.
The great thing about the DC controller is after turning it down, once whatever caused the overflowing dissipates, you just turn the knob back to the previous position and you should be back in business.
Ok. Skimmer started overflowing again Yesterday. Right after I changed my roller filter fleece. My fleece roll lasts about three months so the time table fits.does anyone else have the issue from time to time where it just overflows and continues overflowing? i've been sitting here for like 30 minutes just emptying the cup, turn back on, empty cup, turn back on, empty cup, etc.
it seems like messing with the water level at all really throws it off. when this thing is humming it's great, but this is pretty annoying. i've left it on during water changes a couple times and that definitely makes it angry.
i'm not sure what i did this time other than probably should've emptied the cup yesterday as today it was overflowing and once it overflows it really upsets the skimmer

All the noise comes from the secondary filter sock attachment. Kind of a waterfall noise. If you remove that, it’s silent.
Something is up with yours because mine is nearly silent. The only sound mine makes is a very slight suction sound on the air intake. What's it sitting on in the sump? I removed the stock bumpons and have it sitting directly on a small cutting board to elevate it 1/2". I thought without the bumpons it would transfer vibrations but it doesn't at all. Try a silicone trivet underneath if you haven't already.Nope. I talk about low frequency vibrations and similar noise. I have a lot of sound deadning in my sump comparment, so I cannot hear water splashing, but trought floor can hear those "low noise" - no matter there are 3 layers of sound isolation under the sump
Re: the silencer -- It's my understanding that the silencer is supposed to be down low near the pump -- e.g. short tube attaching it to the pump and the long tube going up to the skimmer neck. That's the way I've been running my 9410, it's the way I've seen in most retailer videos, and I'm pretty sure (but not 100% positive) I saw a thread either in the Tunze forum here on R2R over over at RC from @rvitko (US Tunze rep) saying that was the way it's supposed to be set up.I have a few questions. I bought a second-hand 9410 AC and it doesn't come with a filter sock. Do I really have to have Tunze's or are there other brands / types that fit? I see that the silencer is under water on all the videos on YouTube and here I read that it must be above water. How about that now? Can you also control the height of the water in the skimmer without using the adapter with filter sock?
I posted on this a while back, i got the 9410 DC originally but concerned that it wasn't enough for a 200g tank so I took advantage of the Black Friday sale to save some $$ and got the 9430 DC, installed it and true to everyone's word it is easy to set. picture is about 24hrs after plugging it in and was still running wet, but never overflowed on me. the only concern was how super loud it was for the first 10 minutes then not a fan if you want to have a filter/screen on the bottom of the pump you need to elevate the skimmer about 1.5" -2" which i did with an DIY egg crate stand. It is also a very tight fit in the sump, I have a very narrow tank but got it in there with still some room for the heaters. (note photos taken at different times but still shows how well it is working the second photo was later, still running wet but I like how easy its pulling all the crap out of the water even though its a brand new skimmer)You will need 12” one way for sure. Because of the pump on the side. The other way has more options depending how you arrange the filter sock. You should be able to squeeze it in at 10”. For sure if you eliminate the filter sock all together which a lot of us do.
