2236 noise.

I have had my 2236 for about a week. I got it and a jbj reaction 45. To replace a 2074 I had on my 55gal. The 2074 was dead silent but the e features where a dud. So I assumed that the 2236 would be as silent. Boy was I wrong. The sound is similar to a running air pump. Or maybe the impeller rattling.

Re: 2236 noise.

Yeah its brand new both the jbj and ehiem. The jbj is very quiet. The ehiem us annoying. My 2074 was so quiet right out of the box I had to check the water to make sure it was running.

Re: 2236 noise.

Figured it out took it apart the impeller shaft was not seated firmly in the rubber gramet.
