Go to utube and search "hydor Evo noise" and watch the fix video. Easy and cheap. Worked for one of mine so far.

Put a transfer pump in the tank with an empty media bag over the exit hole. Put a 2 foot hose on the suction side. As I was scrubbing the hair algae I kept the suction hose close. The algae was then trapped in the media bag. Worked really good! My tank is just too darn deep.
