Question: What do the colored lights on the Magna refer to?

Answer: Each color and rotation provides status information at a quick glance. It is helpful especially helpful when the pumps are in ceilings.

Below is the reference Grundfos “eye chart” that explains specifically what each display means:

Keep in mind that when the eye is yellow it is a important “warning” and the pump will continue to run. However, the cause needs to be addressed with a sense of urgency. If it turns red, game over because it stops dead. For more info on Magna fault codes, go to the Magna 3 FAQ section for the most common errors and fixes at
