Heater making noise?

Hello!
So yesterday I purchased a new 50W Aqueon heater and it seems to be making noise every now and then- it sounds similar to a clicking noise or like a piece of gravel was just kicked. Has this happened to anyone else? Is this okay or is it defective?

I haven't had this experience but it doesn't seem like that could be a good thing...

I have the same heater. Mine makes a veery quiet click when it turns on or off, so you have to be listening for it to hear it. I would return it and try a different one. Good luck.

mine is not quiet at all! It seriously woke me up last night...(my tank is right next to my bed though)
I laugh because I actually just emailed the company to see if this was a malfunction or if it is supposed to be this loud....

Atleast I am not the only one with this problem..I cant image what the fish must be thinking... "WOOOOW underwater earthquake..."

Mine is nxt to my bed too. It doesn't make a loud noise. Just a barely audible tick. Like the second hand on a clock.

I actually have 3 of these heaters..they heat very well!Didn't mean to sound like I was completely dissing the heater...haha

2 out of the three I have aren't as noisy as the tank in my room...they all make noise...but for some reason the one in my room is really noisy..Maybe I will switch out for the one in the other room eventually...haha....

Yes I must agree! I had I believe a cheap Deep Blue heater for about 3 weeks before it stop working.
The adjustable Aqueon keeps the water at a steady, toasty temp! My fish is loving it!

If you have a magnetic impeller style pump in your filter having the heater too close to the pump can cause a disturbance in the magnetic field and make very odd noises. This is what happened with me when using my Elite 25w heater and Eclipse biowheel filter system. My solution was to move the heater away from the impeller and the noises went away.
