Fluval Spec owners do you have any problems with the pump stopping?

MY last aquarium had a pump and it kept stopping everytime cleaned it and then finally it wouldn't come back on. I found out you need to clean the impellor but the unit was sealed on this pump so I couldn't so I ended up having to buy a new filter.

I've bought a Fluval Spec and was wondering if anyone has this problem and if the pump opens so that you can get to the impellor and clean it?

I don't have I was looking for some pic to see if I could figure out what was going on and how to get to the impeller.......since you bought a new filter.....tear the broken one apart...thats what I do when I can't figure one usually end up fixing them too......just gotta remember how I took it apart to put it back together without having any left over parts....laffs......done that

Sorry I couldn't help....hopefully someone that has the type of filter you have now will come along with the needed information.......not a lot of information on the Fluval Spec....I have the new Fluval C3 HOB....not all that happy with it.......clogs too fast-but, its easy to take apart and work on and I can make my own filter media for it so thats
