    Does it sound anything like a washing machine? That is typical of trouble priming or an inlet restriction.

    My Last Pump Sounded Like Generator Running And I Bet It Kept My Neigborsfrom Sleeping But That Thing Kept Working So I Kept Them Up Every Night Until One Day I Shut It Off And It Would Not Come Back On Because The Fan Finally Locked Up On It. I Never Knew What The Problem Was But It Would Also Get Hot After Running Awhile So I Would Turn It Off And Pour Water On It Concerned It Might Cause A Problem But I Ran It Alot Before I Bought A New One . Just Be Careful If It Is Getting Hot While Running .

    I would say that the grinding indicates that it is going to fail, you can either buy a new one, or use it until it fries itself, at which point you have to buy a new one. That is probably what I would do, but I like my money.

    Could be the bearings, when they go you will hear a screeching or whinning noise. I guess it is possible it could be a "grinding" noise as well. If your mechanically minded take it apart and check the bearings. If not, evaluate the cost of servicing the unit against running it into the ground. Could be something entirely different as well :-)

    Tear it apart and look at it. Or else let it be, if you can take it apart, there may be something broken off in there that just needs to get removed, like a broken piece of plastic from a gear or something. Don't damage any gaskets or O-Rings in the process, if you aren't mechanically inclined and don't have any self confidence then leave it alone.
