Mine makes a bit of noise but is quieter after it broke in. Is there anything in the collection cup, it looked empty in the photos. It's going to make noise but shouldn't be incredibly loud.

Try lowering the cup until the conicle part underneath touches the bubbles and let it sit there for a little while, if nothing then lower it again just a little and wait. keep repeating until you see foam coming out of the top. Note If you go to low the skimmate will be wet which is ok but you will have to empty it more frequently.
