Marineland Bio-Wheel 200b

Okay so I recently bought a Marineland Bio-Wheel 200b. I have had it running for about 2 weeks with my 2 filter socks and bio sponges from my old fitlers (since they are cycled) kinda crammed in the number 2 slot with a marineland rite size c cartrige in the number 2 slot, and well after the first week the filter cartridge "c" started not letting water freely pass thro it. This cause's a problem cause it make the water come out the over flow spot and makes the bio wheel not spin.I rinced it out and well it helped for about a week then it did it again. so I rinced again and well few hours later same thing again.

Any Suggestions??

I never put my old media in it I just swished it and squeezed my sponge in the actual tank water it'll make it look nasty for maybe a hr but my tank was cycled in 2.5 weeks doing it that way
