Filter burned out... Help?

So the other day my filter just stopped working. It cut out and was making a quiet buzzing noise. I used a cup and poured more water Into the back of the filter and it seemed to start working like it should. I came back later to it making a loud keening screech. I proceeded to pour more water in it and this time watch. It seems it works fine except It can't pull water up into the filter so it runs out of water to use. I've had to unplug it. I suspect perhaps the motor has burned out?
Can anyone help diagnose my problem and let me know if there is a way I can fix it? By the way, I have a 30 gallon aqueon filter that hangs on the back of my tank.

Sounds like there is an obstruction fouling the impeller. Try cleaning out the motor with q-tips.

That might be. I checked the intake to see if it was obstructed and couldn't see anything. So I guess I'll have to take it apart and look more thoroughly. Thanks.

When a filter stops working, that's the first thing at which I look.
