Berlin skimmer question

Hi all,

I bought a berlin classic used and have a question. After having it running for a while, the center tub has what looks to be a tornado circling in it. After looking at the manual, this is listed as a problem. It says baffle on the bottom of the inner tube may have fallen off or the tube is upside down.

I can not see a real parts list and redseafish.com does not show anything but the manual.

Anyone know what this is? I see the inner tube, the middle tube with the locking plate and the plastic air return skirt, inside the main tube. That is all I have besides the body, the collection cup and the ozone cup. Any other internal pieces I am supposed to have?

There is a square plastic piece that goes in the middle smallest tube, this breaks the tornado up. Turn the skimmer off, dismantle it and see if it has fallen to the bottom of the skimmer, you may have to turn it upside down and shake it out of the water intake area.
