    Unplug your filter again and take it apart. Remove the pump and impeller and clean, clean, clean (you can float the media in a bucket of tank water until you're done). Make sure there aren't grains of sand or plant matter or anything around the impeller. It should work when you put it back together. :)

    Don't panic, mine do that sometimes. I just take it back off and mess with the impeller. Did you clean the impeller?

    when I used them they did that to me too.
    Sounds like something is just stuck, keep messing with it.

    Your welcome. Oh, for the inside of the pump when you pull the impeller out I use q-tips to get the gunk out if you don't have a small narrow brush. Then poor water in a few times and dump in out to get the loosend gunk out.
