Perhaps that screen over the sump area needs to be cleaned.

Probably a bad diffuser. if it is loose then replace it. It is supposed to be stationary but heat eventually loosens the blade and some folk think it is supposed to turn. It ain't.

When the unit fills, does the water level reach the bottom of the heater or not?
