I would return/exchange it since it is new. I love the 110 we have.

I have an AC110 and an AC70, both dead silent. They make a heck of a racket until they fully prime after a water change, but then remain silent.

IIRC, the removable black top plate in them holds the top end of the motor shaft; perhaps it isn't lined up properly allowing the impeller to rub something?

That's something I have to look into.

I have to wait till next water change to take it apart again. But looking at it run, it looks like the impeller is sliding UP and hitting that black top plate.

Afaik, the impeller should be pulled down by the motor when it is running.

The magnet should try to center itself into the motor when running; whether it moves up or down just depends on it's position with the motor off. Sounds like the quality issue is with the height they glue the magnet at.

Brand new Aquaclear 110 noisy

It does sound like the motor magnet is not properly aligning it. But I did try to use my old motor with the new impeller and same result. Maybe the impeller is faulty? Like I said previously or maybe it was on another thread, anything related to the impeller, Hagen doesn't want to deal with.

Here is where the impeller is hitting on. I also tried pulling this cover up, and the impeller still goes up and hit that thing?!Click image for larger version
