Nyos 220 overflowing

I had my Nyos 220 well tuned but had to turn it off to repair the stand it sits on in the sump. When I turned it back on, the skimmer was overflowing. I opened the water and air control knobs all the way and took the collection cup off, but the skimmer has been over flowing for 5 days. If I close the air control knob at all, then it overflows with huge amounts of bubbles. It is about 8" of water. HELP!

Thank you.

37 views and no advice. Come on, Guys and Gals, I'm drowning in over-flow!

When mine overflows, I open it wide open like you did, but I don't take the cup off, I empty the cup, sometimes 4 or 5 times, until it stops overflowing. When it's settled down, i restrict the flow again to the point that it's bubbling all the way up, but not overflowing, and let it run a while, empty the cup if necessary, and then restrict it further until I've got it set back to the way I want it.

Thank you. But what if the skimmer is over flowing water with the bubbles turned off completely?

Is your air intake clogged with salt creep? What did you use to repair the stand it sits on with?

I used marine aquarium grade silicon for the repair. My air valve is not clogged.
