With cleaning it so well and changing the filters, I'm wondering if you've caused a mini cycle in the tank and are seeing a bacteria bloom?

What are your parameters (ammonia / nitrate / nitrite)?

The grinding sound is likely due to sand getting sucked into it. How close is the filter intake to the bottom of your tank? You'll want to fix this problem as soon as you can because the grinding sound means that the sand is causing wear on the moving parts in your filter, which will eventually lead to it not working.
