Really loud Fluval U4

About a month ago I purchased a Fluval U4 and ever since I bought it it's been really loud. It makes what sounds almost like a grinding sound or something is caught in the impeller. I pulled out the whole filter and cleaned out the impeller but it is still making the noise. I also put Vaseline on the impeller because that usually helps my other filters but It did not make a difference. Any advice helps. Thank you

I don't think my question in the first post was clear enough. Can anyone give me any advice on how to make my Fluval U4 run smoother and quieter?
