Help w/ Aqueon Pump: Evolve 8 sp-98???

The pump Aqueon sp-98 pump quit working on my Evolve 8 tank after about 6 months use. I'm guessing it needs to be cleaned. How do I do this?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks, Doug

I think there is a cover that pops off? But probably not really accesable for cleaning. Soak it really hot water maybe. If it's dead you can get a similar pump for cheap at harbor freight, get the smallest they have, should be under $10.
