    Hello all, here's the video I made of dismantling the filter, replacing the cog and rebuilding the filter. Hopefully this will be useful, let me know if you have any questions.

    I too have the AEM drum filter, and have the same problem that the uv light will not work when plugged into control panel, so I have it connected straight into seperate socket with convertor for euro plug same with the pump.
    Had the control panel replaced under warrenty and same problem.

    Hello Ian, it does seem there are common quality problems with the filter. I've got the UV plugged into separate socket as well for now.

    It did seem my problems were very quickly identified so I guess lots have had the same problems.

    Wow, not long then, I guess I should start worrying. Just when I was thinking my drum hasnít missed a beat for a couple of years.

    Brilliant video, it will make life a lot easier for anyone having the same problem in the future.
    It looks quite involved, but having the video will give confidence to anyone not sure what to do.
    Well done because I bet that was a bit daunting when you first started not knowing what to expect.

    Zig had the same issue with two gear boxes before I was told about the plastic cog, on the 2nd one I also broke the the metal rod by tightening it to the stated torque so had to get another one sent and was told to tighten it to only 40nm as 63 I think it was put the rod under too much stress. Surely it would be an easy update to the instructions to let people know this? As for the control box. Mine has never worked but was told this is normal and most people just plug the UV into a different outlet ����

    Hello all, I've had problems with the replacement parts to fix the UV ( link below ) . I think I'll go with the same approach as Craig and keep it plugged directly into a seperate power supply .

    I recently noticed that my amalgam was not working so I purchased a replacement bulb and fitted it but it it’s still not working. I have tried plugging it in directly to another supply but it’s still not working. Has anyone had this problem and have you resolved it?

    I did. Basically the whole amalgam unit wasn’t working and needed replacing.
    But that was when I first bought it (2+ years ago), so it was under warranty at the time.

    I think Filtreau or Easydrum do sell the amalgam unit separately if you need to replace it yourself.

    Sorry for the late response, the bulb blew in mine and the replacement bulb did not work. I had been in contact with Edwin at AEM several months ago when it initially stopped working, he did send me some replacement parts but they were different to the ones already in the UV controller, as the UV still worked then when I plugged it directly into the mains I didn't bother trying to replace the parts.

    But now as it stopped working altogether, as a last resort (and when I checked the price of a new UV) I tried fitting the parts he sent me. To my amazement it actually worked, still need to plug it directly into the mains but don't mind that.

    I've got some footage in the video below, hope it helps
