Default Does your Eheim Hum alittle? Specifically Eheim 2213

I just recently set up a Eheim 2213. It has a slight hum. Like the sound you from a computer. I have it underneath the tank 3-4' and on tile.

Does yours hum?

I have Eheim 2215 and for the first few monts it didn't made any noise now it makes the same noise as a new computer fan.So louder then a "hum" it's more like "HUMM"

My eheim is about 4 months old, and it has always been quiet for me. Actually, so quiet that sometimes, I can't even tell it's running until I actually see the water being pushed out of the output.
The only time it makes a noise is when there's some air trapped and is suddenly released into the impeller, then I'll hear the sound of air being impelled.

My 2213 is dead silent unless it is outgassing. I have to look at the spray bar to see if water is actually flowing or not. It is about 6 months old.

I have a 2215 and a 2217. I did notice it was louder in the beginning than now. Actually when I set up my first Eheim, I almost returned it as it was louder than I thought Eheim's should be. I procastinated it and one day a week or two later I realized it was silent.

Hehe, I can't tell if it's getting quieter or I'm just getting use to it. Mine hums. I'll clean in later this weekend and see what that does. Although it's brand new...doh.

Mine hums too & it's very frustrating. When i first set it up last week it was completly silent. Ordered a new impeller which hopefully will sort it
