You usually have to re-adjust a CC skimmer if you turn it off. Cut the air all the way off and bring it up slowly. Once you get it adjusted properly, it should work fine.

Have you added anything to the water lately? Some dechlorinators have a slime additive in them for fish. Those will make the skimmer go absolutely crazy.
