Question about Oase Aquamax SF Pumps 3500 for Ponds ()
Your filter may be clogged if not check for clogs in the fittings running between them. You will have some loss of pressure pressurizing the filter unit but it should not be a drastic loss.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Generally speaking, an FL error, or any error with FL in the message, deals with flow switch failures. The switch ensures there is enough system flow so the heater will not over-heat the water. It may be the switch itself is bad but you should first check for system problems that will cause this switch to open.
Assuming your pump is on and any valves in your pipes are set correctly it could indicate something is restricting water flow too much and needs to be cleaned to fix your flow rate and allow the heater to switch back on.
Start at the skimmer(s) baskets and then the pump strainer basket if so equipped. You should also clean your filter(s). If your cartridge(s) are older, washing them off may no longer return them to a clean enough state to allow enough water to flow. At start up there is enough flow to close the switch but as the water starts to circulate they quickly load up. The switch remains closed until the system shuts off the first time but then will not re-close until the system has settled enough. At least that is one possibility.
If nothing changes after this maintenance you should replace the switch. You do not need to buy the exact same part; only one rated to operate at the same voltage and that has the same method of connecting it to the pipe well.
