Fluval FX5 air noises

I've had an FX5 setup on my tank for about 2 weeks. The tank is clear, the filter is running, but I still hear air somewhere inside. I give the canister a shake and bubbles come out of the output but the noise is still there.

Any suggestions??

Take it off and open it and check your baskets and just make sure it is all set in there correctly and put back together and restart.
