annoying micro bubbles

I have had a fluval fx5 cannister for about a month now and the last two days it seems to be sending enormous amounts of micro bubbles into my aquarium. I thought I had it figured out yesterday however today it is just as bad if not worse. I can not for the life of me figure out how so much air is geting iside the filter. It automatically turns on for 2 mins, off for 2 and back on once a day to rid the filter of air inside it but it is constantly shooting air bubbles out every 30 seconds or so.

Anyone with a Fluval FX5 have any advice ?

I have a Fluval 405. Mine did the same thing. I fixed it by pumping it with water. There is a grey pump on the top of the filter on mine. I just pumped it, and the bubbles stopped.

what do you man pumping it with water ? Mine is self priming and there isnt any water pump button. Does yours do it often or was it just a one or two time occurence ?
