I had that happen a few times.....it was usually the charcoal settling.
I made myself a better fire grate, a tiny "chimney" inside the firebox to always allow air through, and regulated it with a temperature controller. Now, all I have to do is fill it up with good charcoal, and it will go upwards of 30 hrs at 225F without a single tweak to the draft door or daisy wheel.
