I would call Fluval, maybe he didn't break after all if there is no visual damage. I would pull it apart and inspect the impeller itself, since that's more likely to be making noise as opposed to the motor.

Sure, you should hear nothing but a low humming noise. What did you change?

We the auto prime pump harder and got the filter started. When i took my old filter media and filter out to wash in old tank water, a lot lf debris floated into he water.
Im going to do a 5 gallon wc tommarrow mornig before work
I dont want to stress them out too much. Bcuz i did a 4 gallon wc after i saw all of the debris( my mom overfed the week before while o was on vacation)
. So thats 40 percent in two days. Does that sound like too much? There is still a bit of stuf floatin around.
Sorry for all of the questions

Honestly you really can't ever change to much water. daily water changes will yield the best color and growth in any fish.

Ok, the water is so much clearer since the filter is running, and the fish love it.
I really appreciate all of ur help.

I was thinking that maybe the impeller got bent a tad enough to cause it to slightly wobble.
