Problems with Filter

Hi

After my last water change i noticed that the filter was making a sort of buzzing noise which it wasnt doing before, have taken it out and given it a good clean and reassembled it but its still making the noise which is quiet annoying. Im worried it might stress Blaze out although he seems fine and in fact keeps going over to the filter.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Thankyou

possibly a stupid question, but is there enough water in the tank? i notice my filter gets quieter the more water there is in the tank. and the less there is the more buzz noises it makes.

Could try more cleaning soak them in a solution as vinegar, no soap please, incase hidden residue, make sure all the parts are there. Hope you are able to fix things.

Believe most vinegars are fine course rinse well, I usually use hot water with less cleaning needed.

I've heard buzzing for two reasons.
1 my filter somehow makes my hood vibrate and make the noise
2 the new filter i had bought was broken
May be one of these two for you
Check the propeller thing that could be causing it
