      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Aerator pump blowing fuses

Recommended Posts

I have a Rule aerator pump that keeps blowing fuses. As soon as I put in a new one, and turn on the switch, it pops the fuse.

Any ideas on where to start looking for the problem?

Cracked insulation, shorting out, make sure the wires are + to + and - to -. I was a dummy once, put them on wrong, and three dollars in fuses later I figured it out. crazy.gif

I agree the suspect sounds to be a wiring issue. One might also check the impeller on the pump as something could have it stuck in place and it wont turn.

I wondered about the impeller. If it is stuck, will that cause the fuse to blow?

It might not blow that fast unless motor is burned and shorted out, in which case all the suggestions above apply.

Fuss is 2 amp, but I can't find one anywhere. My dealer says to use a 5 amp because if anything is/gets caught in the pump, it will pop the fuse. If it pops with a 5 amp then I have problem.

Watch out with 5A fuse Rules suggest 2A Do you have the 3 wire one? if so the brown/white tracer wire is for a switch the other two are ground Black and Brown POS,they are for the float.The brown/white tracer is not needed unless you'd like a off/on switch. I get my 2-3 amp fuses at Kmart or Menards

Also its white top blue base/strainer there are two tabs between the two to release motor from strainer,pop it off and turn the impeller by hand.then try it disconnected from strainer,maybe even cut the wires and go direct to batt. see if it works.
