My skimmer

Hey all just wondering if anyone has had trouble with their skimmer before. I thnk mines on the fritz but might just be the impeller needs replacing. It started to buzz a bit so I took it apart and cleaned it. Tried to troubleshoot the problem in the sink to no real avail. Put it back on and left it for a day and it seemed to fluctuate the level in the water to appear a bit low. I then adjusted the setting so the level was in the proper place in the funnel and an hour later the Venturi stopped and overflowed my skimmer. Has anyone had a problem like this? Do I need an impeller or should I just get a bigger skimmer altogether??!!
