Spoken to Tunze and they are sending out a new motor block and cable,  result.

I think though that the cable coming out of the bottom is a bit of a design flaw.  If anybody buys a 6040 or 6020,  you might want to wrap some zip ties around the cable to prevent it getting turned at too tight of an angle.  Strangely it has strain relief at the controller end of the cable, but not at the powerhead end.

Well that annoying I was going to pick up 2x 6025's with the Nanostream Rocks.
How was it positioned in the tank?

Not sure if the 6025 will have the same problem unless you run it pointing down.

If you look at the 6020/6040,  the wire comes out of the bottom of the powerhead, so it has to do a 180 degree turn unless you want it on its side or upside down:



Tunze's own pictures have it up that way,  so it's not like they could say I was using it wrong!

Tunze have been good to their word and sent a replacement motor FOC. Interesting to see the new one has strain relief fitted at both ends of the cable. Should be much more durable 👍
