Try pushing the intake tube down.
Often noise is from the tube not be seated properly..
You can clean the impellar without worry.
The filter should not just stop if it is running..

Well it seems to becoming from the back and the flow in the intake is half way as it’s a 20gallon filter

So it’s only half full? The canister part? I’d get it fuller myself. And yes, clean impeller too.
