I'm going to try removing the impeller to determine if it is the motor that is causing the problem.

I feel your frustration ~_~
Has air in intake. Bounce it...

I'd make sure that your co2 is not gassing off into your room.

Where else would it gas off? There's not enough co2 to do any harm...

I've only had a problem like this with an aqueon filter and I couldnt get it to work so I just returned it. However whenever my filters are making noise I always check for sand, like you did. I would try leaving it off for a little while, it may just work when you turn it back on.

Depends co2 is heavier than air and if you have poor air circulation in a room the concentration could build up.

It's a very small amount produced from a coke bottle. And my room isn't vacuum sealed. So I think it should be cool... Idk.
