Sounds like you may need to take the pump apart and do a deep cleaning. You may have some buildup in the magnet cavity or between the impeller shaft and the bearing. Take a look at this thread for cleaning instructions on all red dragon pumps. Post 2 addresses the bearing in your pump that should also be removed, cleaned and reinstalled properly before putting the impeller back in.

Follow the instructions in link to that thread. You may have the bearing inserted incorrectly or you may not have cleaned the bearing. If the bearing is properly cleaned or isn’t inserted properly, the rotor could bind intermittantly causing the symptoms you are describing.
