heater clicking/popping

So tonight I notice my aqueon heater is making noise so i have unplugged it and am going to replace it but my question is why would it be making a popping sound while on?

My second question is what would u guys replace it with maybe a aqueon pro? If not what are some good brands?

Was the heater out of water?

Some really good heaters are titanium, not glass. Fluval has a really great heater, although I've never tried it. I love my aqueon pro heater, it's awesome!! It always has my 40G at the perfect temperature

I would definitely take te heater out of the tank immediately just too be safe. A heater breaking in the tank cannot be good! I'm not sure as to why it is clicking, maybe it's defective? Have you tried contacting the company? What kind of heater is it?

Remove it immediately it has a short in it somewhere. If it's old toss it and get another. It's not worth risking your life over, it's only a heater.
Namaste,
Gypsy
