Seeder issues - airpump?


Hi - has anyone had issues with their airpump? I was 3/4 way through a seeding sequence, and it stopped picking up seeds, and I haven’t been able to resolve.

Checked UTM connector, changed needle, zip tied and shortened air tube, check the tool itself.

Checked at the pump and it seems to be sucking in air at the appropriate port (though not very strongly) but at the actual tool if you put the needle into the seed bucket it almost seems to pushing the seeds away - as if it was pushing air out of the needle?

Any ideas brain trust? Cheers!


Yes, this seems to happen to a couple of people.
Mine does it too. Blowing until a seed or finger is right at the needle and then sucking.
people recommend to clean the pump.
