Common Trouble Shooting:

Q: Why Should I use "Buon Vino" Filter Pads
A: You should use Buon Vino Filter Pads because the micron sizes and consistency of Buon Vino Filter Pads have been designed to give optimal performance when used with Buon Vino wine filters. The flow rate of the pump is designed to work in conjunction with the Buon Vino Filter Pads to give you the best filtration possible. For more information, please visit the Filter Pads page.

Q: When and how do I lubricate the gears on the Mini Jet Pump?
A: On rare occasion, if the Mini Jet has been run dry or has overheated, it may be necessary to lubricate the gears.

Q: I have air going into my pump and my wine is foaming.
A: There are 3 possibilities...1. The wine is very young and carbon dioxide (CO2) is present. The pump will release this gas simply due to the action of the pump. The release of CO2 from the wine is a good thing; most kits recommend agitating the wine to help release this gas.  2. You have removed the port fitting (black connector on the intake of the pump). We recommend that this fitting should not be removed. If you have done to make sure that the O ring has not been crimped and that it is fully inserted into the intake hole of the pump.  3. The intake hose is vinyl and can expand. Cut approximately 1/2 inch to 1 inch off the end of the hose and re-insert the hose. This will create a better seal at that point and not allow any air intake.

Q: Wine is leaking too much out of the pads.
A: 1. Please read the sheet that is supplied with the filter on suggestions and recommendations.  2. If you did not rack your wine and you have sediment at the bottom you may be drawing up some of the sediment and clogging the pads quickly.  Rack your wine before filtering.  3. Identify the style and density of the wine you are making.  Each batch is different and can also clear at different times.  Red wines, due to the color, are much harder to identify.  Never start filtering with the hose at the bottom of the carboy.  Insert your hose about half way and gradually force it towards the bottom of the carboy.  Do not allow the line to empty.  This will make the pump run dry, potentially damaging your pump.  4. What type of wine are you making?  Some wines clear faster than others and some types are heavier especially reds.  If you are making a heavy red wine you may need to filter with the #1 pad which is coarser.  Please read the Suggestions and Recommendations sheet supplied with the product.  5. Lubricate your tightening bolts at the thread with petroleum jelly or food grade grease. This gives the better ability for the hand wheels to tighten down on the filter area.

Q. I need a new motor. The back fan is not turning and my pump is not working.  This problem is identified by a buzzing sound coming from the motor, but your fan at the rear of the unit is not turning.
A. This is a problem which most users of the Mini Jet will not encounter.  It is caused by a gear inside the pump becoming stuck due to failure to flush out the pump properly after the last filtering session, oak chips becoming trapped between the gears, or allowing the pump to run dry.

For polishing not clearing
This is for polishing an almost polished wine... It is brilliant when used on a red wine with number 2 pads... But the wine has to be very clear when you use this.... It is not for filtering wine !!! It is to polish a wine that has been clearing for weeks !!! Most complaints that I have read probably used this on foggy partially cleared wine trying to save time.... If you buy this I would recommend putting wide rubber bands around the knobs for a better grip to help tighten them... I have a stern hand grip and I still need a little help... I would buy this only if you want to invest more time and money to have a beautifully clear wine. But if you drink a lot of wine it comes with more work and money... It is great if you give a lot away as gifts.....

Useful
If you are doing a five gallon carboy once in a while, it works fine. It is a little messy. Be sure to soak the pads for a while in water (don't just wet them). Be sure to tighten the screws DOWN not just pretty tight. Make sure the recycle tube from the drip tray is functioning. But you will see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your wine, even if you are in the habit of racking three or more times. Next time, I'd save up for the big brother model.

Try something else
I would not buy this item to filter wine. I've been making wine for a long time and have been looking for something like this, but this unit is messy and slow. I also lost 2-3 bottles equivalent of wine due to the water used to saturate the filter material. It comes out of the pump diluted and undrinkable until the filters are fully saturated with wine. If you have a lot of time for prep and clean up then this pump is for you. Otherwise using the pre-filter stuffed with cheesecloth with a little co2 on the back end is what I am using now and it works almost as well.
