Question about API Nexx Aquarium Filter

Open Question

NEXX is leaking at the bottom. I have a double canister set. I have switched the two canisters around. It is only one canister that is leaking. I tightened the screws in the bottom, but when it's attached to the bottom part, it's leaking. I've had the NEXX system since May 2013, this is the first problem I've had with it.

2000 Chevy Malibu Code p1441what must I do to fix this problem


1. Check for vacuum passing through the canister purge solenoid all the time. When it is electrically turned off, there should be no vacuum going back to the charcoal canister.

2. Check the hoses to the purge solenoid for being switched around. Manifold vacuum should be going to the top port and line back to the canister on the bottom port.

Check engine light on codes p0442 p0456 p0513


P0442 and P0456 are both evaporative emission error codes due to a small leak. The most common cause is a leaking gas cap or hose leak on that system. I did not list a code for your 0513. I am sending you a little information about your problem.. Best of Luck to you..

Check engine light is on with trouble codes P0442 and P0456. The codes are evaporative system small leak codes.
1. Verify that the gas cap is a factory Toyota gas cap and visually inspect that all hoses and lines are tight and connected.

2. Locate the canister closed solenoid and the vacuum switching valve on the canister. Manually ground them and verify that they operate and function. The canister closed solenoid is normally open and should close when grounded. The vacuum switching valve on the canister is normally closed and needs to open when grounded.

3. Verify that the hoses are not loose or pulled off the canister closed valve on the air cleaner housing. This has been a common problem on some models.

4. If no problem is found, the next step is to ground the canister closed solenoid and the vacuum switching valve under the vehicle and simulate an evaporative test and verify that the system holds a vacuum and functions normally. When the solenoids are grounded, back probe the Blue/Black (L/B) wire on the pressure sensor, and with no vacuum or pressure, the voltage should read around 3.3 volts. Start up the vehicle and turn on the purge vacuum switching valve and use engine vacuum to draw down the system to around 2 volts on the pressure sensor. If the voltage does not increase rapidly, there is no problem. If the voltage increases quickly, look for the leak in the evaporative system. Potential Causes: Canister Closed Valve
Disconnected Canister Closed Valve (CCV) Hose
Gas Cap
Harness
Vacuum Switching Valve - For the pressure sensor.

Vacuum sounds funny and doesn't have any suction.


I love the Dyson (DC07), but after 7 or 8 years it lost suction and needed some attention beyond filter cleaning. After much online research I found the few bits of advice that for me were the holy grail. After all of the standard stuff, clear clogs, clean filters etc..... In this order: 1) Remove & empty the canister, ***important****-leave the canister bottom lid open. 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

I have lost suction.....what do I do? -with the vacuum and the hose!


Its okay to unscrew where the hose is connect to the area close to the bottom, where the hose bends. That is where there is usually a ball of hair, dust, and whatever. Pull the hair ball out and also clean the roller.

Check engine light came on my 2002 Rav 4. Auto Zone diagnostic code PO446. How should I fix?


Chances are, it's going to be either 1 of the 3 switches that need replacing, a new gas cap or a new charcoal canister. The 2 switches under the hood are the VSV for CCV and VSV for EVAP. The one at the canister itself is the VSV for VSP. This VSV for VSP typically goes bad before the other 2 switches do. Plus, the switches are much cheaper than a new canister. (BTW, VSV stands for vehicle switching valve.)

PO446 is an evap canister code
