D5 pump out of alignment

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone. I’ve had a primochill D5 pump for 4.5 years & about a month ago it started making some noises, but maybe for a few seconds at a time & were very subtle so I didn’t do anything about it. Today the pump stopped working completely, it just shut off while I was editing a video & so I took my loop apart & realized it’s slightly out of alignment & a piece of the pump has been rubbing against the side of the pump for a while. I can pop it back into place but when I let go the magnets hold it in it’s wrong position. In the pictures below you can see the white dot is not centered & how it sticks to the wall when I’m not holding it. 

Anyone have any advice on how to fix it or suggestions? I’m really not interested in buying a new pump especially because I’ve been waiting very patiently for Icelake to build a new PC but I need my current PC in the mean time.

Buy a new impeller. Only way around it unless you have the ability to balance the current one.

The first thing I want to try is balancing it but I have almost no knowledge about pumps but if I do buy a new impeller, where would I go about buying an impeller? Is the D5 universal or is mine specific to primochill? Also have there been any updates to the D5 pump in the last 5 years?

Been a few updates to them

but I don’t have the list of specs for that. But mainly the plastic portion has changed. All d5’s will be the same overall though. Primo didn’t make it.
