If the filter doesn’t start, lift the Wonder Tube out of the filter and remove the Magnet Impeller
Assembly. Use tweezers to remove any stringy or hair-like material that may have twisted around the
shaft. Hold the assembly by its endcaps and try to spin the magnet. If the magnet does not spin freely,
rinse under a jet of tap water to “unlock” it. Now hold the magnet and try to spin the impeller one turn in
either direction. If the impeller doesn’t spin freely, rinse under a jet of tap water to “unlock” it. If rinsing
doesn’t free up the magnet or impeller, replace the assembly.
If you’ve replaced the assembly and the filter still won’t start, it is possible the carbon or aquarium
gravel may have lodged at the bottom of the Energizer Well. Slide the Wonder Tube up and down in the
filter box (with water still in it). If this doesn’t work, unplug the filter and empty it in your sink. Insert a
drinking straw–not a metal instrament–into the Energizer Well and try to break up any sediment. Rinse
the Energizer Well and re-assemble the filter.
To determine if the Energizer is functioning, plug it into an electric outlet and hold the Magnet Impeller
Assembly against its outside wall. If you feel a magnetic attraction, the Energizer is functional. If not,
replace the Energizer.
Size: Up to 60-Gallons

Also, I replaced the additional media in the filter with a better mesh to control phosphates and (hopefully) cut down on algae, and there was plenty of room for this material along with the bags and charcoal.
I had looked at the more expensive cylinder filters but after assessing the cleaning problems, the leaking problems and the overall work involved, I chose to stick with the Whisper and spend my $$ on new fish and decorations!
EDIT (MOD FIX):
OK, I figured out why this is so loud. The part that goes into the motor (fins attached to a magnet) is two connected pieces. However, this makes the spinning part with fans vibrate against the magnetic piece below it. So, I dried it and took a small piece of scotch tape and tightly wrapped it around the top of the magnet and the bottom of the fin. This made it act as one solid piece. I put it back in the motor and it is now super quiet. Problem solved for next to nothing.
Whisper PFs are exceptional! Very well constructed and most are very quiet. The Whisper 60 is the biggest model and is also the noisiest of the bunch. They're not insufferable, though, but you can hear them working compared to their smaller cousins. Usually the noise is caused by impeller assemblies not being seated properly and/or air being trapped in the impeller compartment. Should ALWAYS add the impeller assembly into the motor housing after adding water to that compartment so air doesn't get trapped inside. The cover tends to rattled from the vibration generated by the motor, but putting a rock or something like that on top of it eliminates that issue.
The Whisper 60 has a 2 compartment system which makes these filters extremely versatile! Using the filter pouches, you can add any media you want. I always keep one side stuffed with blue bonded media and sponge type media for beneficial bacterial to take on biological filtration which keeps the water crystal clear even with no chemical/mechanical media in use.Read more ›
