mechanical noise

i have an older version of a Aqua Clear 200 that i bought at a yard sale. Everything is in its correct place and in good shape but it makes a loud noise and i have to press on the pin inside the moter to make it start.

Thats just the way they are, if you can't handle the noise you'll need to get a new filter.

There's probably a problem with the motor, and they dont make the motors for the old-models any more so its unfixable.

It could be a problem with the impeller. Try taking a razor to the magnet to scrape any rust off it. But use caution not to cut your fingers.

Give it a try and it it does not work you may need to replace the impellor.
