Question filter making weird noise

The Duetto 50 filter in my 10g sorority tank is making a lot of noise right now. I'm not sure why. I unplugged it because i didn't want to stress my fish out. It sounds like there is air in it, but I turned it sideways & that didn't help or anything.

Anyone know how to get rid of the noise? Much appreciated. =]

Did you check it for dirt or something clogging it?

Maybe its dirty and needs some cleaning.

Ive had this problem before, for the little funnel curvy thing that sucks in the dirt and water take that out and clean it or just jiggle it a little.

Sorry if this didn't make any sense at all!:/

Okay, I'll have to try cleaning it tonight! Hopefully that helps. =] I don't like not having the filter on for the 10g.

Yea, it could need cleaning. The filter I have is pretty quiet, but sometimes it will make noises. Right now it is, but I'm guessing it's because of this. I haven't cleaned it off yet and it's about time I do. Haha

lol, no of course not! I only use vinegar, but then I completely rinse it. I generally don't use it on the filter though, just scrub off the sponge & replace charcol if needed.
