7 The mist generator seems to slow down, the mist doesn't cover all the trays?

Try the following: Check impeller shaft for accumulation of calcium. Check emission holes along the impeller disc. Few drops of oil in the motor shaft, applied from the air intake under the air filter. In many cases these actions resolve the issue.
