Next time you shut it down, get a turkey baster or similar and see if some particles or debris are in the impeller area. It may be causing an imbalance in the spinning impeller until it's tossed out.
Check the impeller and impeller housing for wear patterns. If you see any it could be it needs to be aligned to that spot now to operate smoothly. The fix for that is replace the impeller and/or impeller housing.
Also, clean the intake tube with a brush or similar to see if build up is getting sucked into the impeller area.
These units like to be kept level. That may help too.
