Zalman Resorator 1 Pump Replacement

Hi guys,

I was wondering whether anyone was able to help me with replacing the pump on the zalman resorator, in the manual which can be downloaded here: (http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Pr...ad.asp?idx=183) it clearly shows that there are screws on the back of the power switch to disconnect the pump wire, ala:

However on my switch there aren't any screws what so ever, here's a picture:

So the question is, how the heck do I take apart the power switch? I've tried pulling the back bit out but it doesn't seem to be coming off and I don't want to force it, anyone know what I should do?

Thanks in advance!

Why do you have to replace the pump? Just use another pump right away outside the Reserator reservoir.

Because you don't buy a single integrated unit to still end up with 3 parts as stuff breaks down. Second, maybe the pump falls under warranty and Zalman shipped or will ship a replacement to him.

@OP, first reply is the way to go, contact support.

You need to get a small flat-blade screwdriver and carefully pry the two pieces of the switch apart. If that doesn't work, then cut the cord and splice it back together.

Thanks for the replies all,

Washell's right, I've obtained a replacement pump from zalman and they haven't got back to me regarding the switch issue.

I tried to pry the two pieces apart but couldn't do it, so I ended up breaking it, to splice the two wires back together do I need a soldering iron?

No. Buy these. Stick the wire in from each end, use pliers to crimp the metal center. Use heat to shrink the plastic to a watertight seal.

Available at most hardware/electrics/electronics stores.

You could buy a new switch to replace the old switch, one that you can open up in the future if needed.
