    Moved your post to technical.

    Did you fill the filter with water so it could prime? Is the stem seeded down properly onto the impeller?

    Ok, we're looking at a power head that has as the intake, a filter media of some sort with a perforated "solid" core that the power head connects to. Around the filter media is a slotted plastic housing to keep largish stuff from being sucked against the media.

    On any power head, the usual reason for it not working is gunk, gravel, or a bit of excess plastic blocking the impeller assembly from spinning. Un-plug the filter and start taking it apart until you can pull the impeller assembly and find out what is blocking it. Remove that.
    Unless the unit is dead, all should work after you re-assemble it.

    Good thinkin' there dbosman. Perhaps there is some packing material in there still.
