    When mine behaved like this, I reset the program and set back to 12 hr function, same problem a day later, like your case.

    Then I found a broken o-ring on pre filter tray. restored to normal after I changed all the seals. Mine is 3+ yrs old. Working fine now.

    Since yours is 10month old I dont think it seals problem.

    I am also curious to know any other reasons...

    Have you looked at Youtube ? Sometimes , someone out there has the same problem and is documenting it with solution too !

    Better check up on the issue , my fear of such long ďelay is that they might forget about your filter . Honestly , these modern upgrade for canister filter are unnecessary to me . I've been sticking with the Classic series nowaday .

    Gosh , thats kinda the downside of owning these so called electronic canister filter . The long down time that you're experiencing is what I've experienced in the past .

    No. They did not.Luckly my tank still got an internal sump to house the bio balls or else all the bacteria will be dead and have to retart the whole tank again.
