What filter is it? I've noticed that some of my filters won't turn on and all I have to do is clean the impeller

As long as you keep flow running though it and keep the media wet then it should be okay, just monitor ammonia and nitrates levels, if you can why not just buy a cheap little filter temporarily as it will save your tank

Depending on how long it takes you are losing massive amounts of ammonia, I recommend that you hp buy a test kit, as levels will be very unstable and your ammonia, will be high, where as your much needed nitrates will be very low
