OT: Eheim Pro II Warning

I've had my Eheim Pro II 2128 Thermofilter for a little over a year and for the most part I love it. The only problem is that the heater solenoid has a tendency to get stuck ON! What's worse is that it cannot be replaced; you have to replace the cannister itself as the heater elements are molded in.
Eheim has replaced it once so far, about 6 months ago, and now it looks like I'm going to have to have it replaced again.
On the upside, both times I discovered the heater stuck on, I caught it just in time; the temps were near 90F (I just discovered the second failure 30 minutes ago), and I have had no boiled fish. Eheim also seems to honor their warranty without question, and the warranty is for 3 years.
Moral of the story is that if you're considering an Eheim Pro II, get one without the built-in heater. Just thought some of you might be interested.
