I think you succeeded in making it quieter! LOL Sorry, couldn't resist. I am the same way with my Penguin. I bought the next one up because I wanted more filtration, and it sounded like a FREIGHT TRAIN. I am spoiled with silence, so I reinstalled my old one after 2 hours and took the other one back for store credit. The LFS
guys plugged it in and agreed it was vibrating too much.
My filter has not come on after unplugging, too. Sometimes I wait and it comes on after awhile, or I fiddle with it (like Rich said) until it starts up again. It shouldn't break this quickly...
