Return pump woes

I'm not usually one to complain about noise, but noise associated with vibration gets on my nerves. I have this Iwaki MD-20RT pump that I bought years about, probably in 2006. I never used the pump, and before this weekend never ran it more than a few minutes. It's rated for high head, and seems to run cool enough, but there is significant vibration coming off of the unit. It's driving me nuts! I can feel the vibration on the ground NEXT to the stand though the carpet.
Unless I can figure out what is causing the vibration, I think I need to replace the unit. Any suggestions? Has anyone ever had vibration in these pumps and repaired it?
