Question about Thermaltake Symphony mini Water Cooling Kit

Open Question

Symphony Mini tower dissassembly ( or how to unscrew the pumps?)

I have to replace one of the Symphony Mini water pump but I don't know how to disassemble the tower.
No way to register to thermaltake forums, I found one post exactly describing my problem though:


I tried disassembling the system to reach to the dead pump so that I can pull it out and replace it with a new pump .

Half way through there was absolutely no way to unscrew the pumps. I unscrewed the base of the system and reached the area where pumps are loacted. The problem is that both pumps are screwed to the body of the system wich is a big cast of Alu. There are screws there but no way to reach them at all unless I cut the body of the Symphony where the pumps are located.

Any tips on how to dismantle the pumps off the Symphony Cooling kit are highly appreciated.

    Here is a pdf explaining the steps.

    I'm stopped at phase 4) I see no way of pulling those inner side panels / rail out.

  • BillyJoe3030 Apr 23, 2009

    I mean I see there is a kind of rail , but pulling hard on it has no effect like it was screwed to the top of the case.
    I suppose I would have to dismantle the grill to access the top, but the grill is firmly fixed and this is nowhere described in documentation. Another view of the whole thing.

    (And I see no screws that may be accessible with an offset screwdriver).

    Have you tried using an offset screwdriver? Many units are assembled using right angled drivers at the factory, not being concerned with repairs.

Could be air in the system which you would need to bleed out. Either that or a faulty pump.

Wash cycle is OK but on the rinse cycle the water only dribbles out, This happens on ALL programs?

Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a fairly common problem with washing machines, All washing machines have a drain pump that pumps out the water in the drum from the machine to the main drain that your hose connects to.
So what you need to do is to remove the pump and clean it out depends on the make and model of the machine there may be a bout 4 screws that hold on the pump cover or may just be a clip or 2 but once removed you can see the trash that is inside of it you will be amazed on how much change and odd things you will find in there ok? i will post some pictures of these pumps with dissassembly instructions it is really not that hard ok?

Noisy water pump from my mini is this a common fault

I have answered lots of Mini questions and this is the 1st one about the water pump being noisy. The problem is caused by the pumps shaft bearing seal leaking, this destroys the shaft bearing. Don't let it go so long that the shaft breaks, and it will.

Thermaltake Symphony Mini water cooler making annoying rattling sounds!

Check the screws of the fan if it is seated properly. Then check your system unit if it is leveled on the ground. Or it could be dust or rust. You can try oiling up the fan.Open up the sticker of the fan and put little oil in it and put back the sticker. You may need to put extra tape as the oil may hinder the sticker from sticking back to the fan.
