Is the current produced by a dc motor the same as the current given to it?

A motor uses electricity; it does not produce it. If you are somehow using a DC motor as a generator, then it will produce power equal to the input power minus the motor losses. If the input power is you spinning the rotor, the output power will be directly proportional to how much work you put into spinning the rotor.

Your aquaclear power filter has stopped working?

It's possible the impellor is gunked up and the motor froze. Remove the black motor portion from the plastic container. Gently pull the impellor out and clean with an old toothbrush, try using one or two Q-Tips to clean the channel where the impellor spins, be careful not to damage the guide pin. Reassemble everything and try using the power filter in water, filter should never ever be used without water. If you don't hear any noise from the motor, try tapping on the motor housing to unfreeze the motor, it that doesn't work, it's time to purchase a new power filter.

What is the problem with using an electric motor to run a generator stepped up with transformers that is used to run the motor and give electricity for other uses?

It's all to do with the conservation of energy. The output power of the transformer cannot be greater than the input power from the motor used to drive your generator! In fact, it will be significantly lower than the power of your first motor due to the efficiency of the motor, of the generator being driven by that motor, and of the transformer. So if you then try to run the original motor from the output of your transformer, the energy-losses will simply accumulate, and the motor will not be able to run!
