It's an aqueous quiet flow 50 it's like running, I can hear it making that noise that some things make when they are plugged in. But it's not sucking up water. Anything is helpful!!
Check the holes under the water on the tube. If those aren't blocked then take it out while it's unplugged and drained and look inside the tube. If that's not blocked, plug it back in and see if it's magically working again. Mine took an extra 3 minutes to prime today. (But it was dealing with pretty low water for it)
I've got one, take it out, leave your media in the tank so you don't kill BB and take the filter apart, clean it out and put it back together, usually works for meNo such luck. It's not clogged and when I plugged it back in, it turned on again, still isn't sucking water and occasionally goes verrooOOOOerm softly ( like the ver gets a little louder then softer.)
Yeah. The magnet might be jammed as well somehow. I think the sound you're hearing is the magnet skipping or jamming
Re seam joining the motor to the intake (the box to the tube) should separate and contain your magnet if I remember correctly, look up a YouTube video or online manual to disassemble the filterOk. Where is the magnet? (I'm bad with mechanical stuff) Also, I noticed that the part I'm pointing at in the picture is pretty hot. Could this be related to anything?

It's hot because it's been running without water to cool it. It will be ok most likely.
Take the magnet out of that little well and clean it out
Glad I could help, it may happen again some time down the road, rinse wash repeat and you should be fine. You're very welcomeSuccess! Thank you so much!!
The hum is always my sign to get down and dirty. Nice user name btw big fanSometimes my filters will do this or just a very faint hum -- then I know it is time to clean the impellor. If it doesn't work, try again. One time it took 3 times using Q-tips to clean out where it goes before it would finally go.

Is it the live plants that are floating or is it the snails that are in there? My heater isnt working either, are my fish are going to die?
Good advice. Sometimes the exact same HOB you have on one tank doesn’t need to be primed, and another one does.If you're using a HOB you'll need to manually fill it with water after you plug it in to get it going at first
If both heater and filter fail to work I would first suspect a problem with the outlet both are plugged into.
I wouldn't say your fish are going to die, but I would see when this started, what size tank? The smaller the tank the smaller the filter the worse the filter(in my case). As mattgirl said above, it could be both.Is it the live plants that are floating or is it the snails that are in there? My heater isnt working either, are my fish are going to die?

No gaps check that over a few times.No gaps in anything anywhere they aren't supposed to be? That's all i got...i haven't dealt with canisters enough for any other ideas
I will give that a shot.Did u full it to the very top wit water. That’s how we usually have to get ours going also tipping it back n forth and front to back will sometimes help .
No luck with that either. I filled it right to the brim. Gave it a tilt a couple times to get the water worked through everything and then filled the hoses. No water is moving when I turn it on. I can hear the motor going and I know the impeller is working so I have no idea why No water movement.No gaps check that over a few times.

I tried filling it like the other poster had suggested and no luck. It sounds normal. Everything looks good but no water flow.I would agree with filling it full of water - I recently got a Fluval, and the manual says like "Do not fill with water!!!" when you open it up and maintain it. However, also having a Marineland Magniflow 360 (and another that the Fluval replaced) - it *needed* to be filled up before starting it. Is it making an electric sound and air noise when you plug it in, or is it just doing *nothing* at all?
