Kandalf LCS liquid not going through the loop

I just installed the hardware in the kandolf case and everything seems fine except that the liquid is not going all the way through the loop. The pump seems to be working because I have a flow meter in between the pump and the cpu waterblock. The flow meter would move a little bit upon system startup but would not cycle like it should. Similarly, the flow meter would move a bit upon system shut down. Do I have a defective pump? I touched the pump when it's operating and it doesn't seem to be vibrating like the manual says it should. Is it the pump or did I do a poor job putting it together? I followed the instruction......please help. I see a large bubble in the tube and it does not move. I added fluid but the bubble does not move. Fluid not moving in tubes

This is most likely an issue with your pump or the water pressure in the loop. Sometimes gravity or a short-circuit in the plumbing can cause water to stall at certain points.

If the pump motor is not vibrating, then that's an immediate indication that your pump is either defective or you have not installed it correctly.

Check to make sure it's got power, water, and sufficient grip on the tubes. If these are all fine, look at getting a replacement for your pump.

2004 gmc yukon denali w/ 6000 vortec. Transmission seems to work fine except it won't go back into park.

From experience from a 05 Cadillac Deville that my pops had when he couldn't turn the car off for him be able to remove the key from the ignition, we found out that one of the transmission sensor that control the gearbox had went bad causing the transmission to malfunction. That sensor is more likely the answer to your problem. Dealer charge $500 to replace, if not more. Hope this will help you out..

Do I need both USB plugs on Gigaware Drive Enclosure?

I haven't heard that radio shack manufactures their own harddrives, I suggest that this they just distribute it from some manufacturer in Asia somewhere, where most of that stuff comes from.

If I were in your place, I wouldn't risk getting any nasty surprises somewhere down the road and would simply do as the manual suggests. You never know exactly when some problem might come up that actually needs more juice for the drive to use. If you want to find out more information about the drive, look in your hardware manager and find out exactly how it is identified, then use that information and surf the web looking for that model. Often you'll find someone that will give you a clue that this model is identical to a model from a certain other manufacturer from which you can get a manual or better hardware description.

Kandalf LCS liquid not going through the loop

Everyone-I had this same problem, and I realize this thread is a couple years old now, but for anyone reading this from now on-
YOUR PUMP IS FINE. When you first go to prime the system you are getting air trapped, most likely in the radiator where you can't see, and gravity is stopping it from clearing out. You most likely have the case upright for adding more liquid. Once you've added all you can: TURN THE CASE ON ITS SIDE. This will put the tank reservoir higher than everything and the liquid will push through and the air will end up here as it should. Once you hear it sucking, turn it off, pull it up right, add more liquid. Rinse and repeat til all bubbles are gone and all sucking sounds cease.
I fought this for a whole afternoon. Threads all over the internet said nothing, til I looked on the reviews on newegg. God bless those guys, about 3 different people said to try this and it worked like a charm. Thermaltake should pull their heads out of their butts and put this in the manual.

Powerswitch bay stuck!

you have to take the front of the case off. Every case is different, there may be clips you have to push in to release the front or there may be screws. once the front is off look for the power switch and glue it back into the switch slot. originally it was probably glued in with hot glue.
