MP10 wet side question

What does a "sometimes" spinning wet side for an MP10 indicate?

It stops and works normally if I power the pump down and move the wet side to reseat it. Doesn't happen often but every now and then especially if there is a blink in the electricity.
I'm thinking maybe it's because I'm using the silicone spacer and creating less bonding strength between the wet side and motor or is it the other way around? This is being used on an AquaPod 12 so the glass is pretty thin hence the spacer.
This has occurred even after I replaced with a brand new wet side.

I would recommend disassembling and cleaning your wetside. In your case, you will want to continue using the dryside spacer.
