    i recently got this filter and it was working perfectly for about two weeks. now it is no loner pulling water in whatsoever. I cant even pull the impeller out to look at it. its like it has been jammed in there. i dont know what to do

    Use a pair of tweezers or needle nose pliers to pull the impeller out- probably gunked up with yuck.

    I'm not sure about the motors used in these filters, but if its anything like a normal motor, its prob burnt up or near death. Not being able to spin creates extreme resistance which turns into heat.
