Unhappy Aquaclear 50 problems?

I was replacing one of the sponges in it and when I went to plug it back in nothing happen. OK i thought It was just the outlet I was using,So I unplugged my air pump and plugged it into the same outlet and it worked.So is my AC50 clogged or did the motor burn up?

There might be something stopping the impeller not letting it start. Do you know how to take the motor off and pull out the impeller?
I sometimes get tiny snails in there and once the impeller stops they move and the impeller cant start again because they are in the way.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
