Amazon.com: Fluval Magnetic Impeller w/Straight Fan Blades, 304, 305: Home & Garden

Could be just the impeller/motor. It's $10.68 plus shipping....All the pieces to rebuild it are about $26 or so. Impeller/shaft/cover...that's pretty much the whole thing, unless your valve is faulty, which I doubt.
