Ac 110

Hello all, my AC 110 crapped out on me. First it started making too much noise.. Then it stopped being able to siphon on its own. When I took it apart I found a piece of plastic in there. At first I thought it was a pen cap but upon closer inspection it seems to be part of the actual filter. What part should I buy to make my filter operable? Or can I just gorilla glue it?

Yeah your right, I didn't recognize that part either. Have you ever owned one?

That doesnt look like a filter part. Fill your filter with water dont put thr basket or the strainer on it just the motor. Plug in and see if it runs.

Yes I own 2 of the 110s and several other models. The picture isn't very helpful but I am fairly certain it isn't any part of the filter.

Well I took a real good look at all the parts, I can see on the black piece where it broke off of something but couldn't find where it broke off of. I did find it right on top of the impeller inside of the pick up tube so maybe it is? I looked at the impeller and it looked good ie no cracks or missing fins. I removed the rod and it seemed pretty straight, no grooves or anything. I'm just going to have to replace the motor I guess.. It makes an awful noise when on and just isn't siphoning any water. Thank you all for the replies.
