If none of the components have gone bad, usually you can adjust
both the VCO frequency trimmer and the width trimmer to get a
good range out of both units. The VCO frequency and width trimpots
interact with each other.

Also - remember the trimpots on the back of the unit. You might
have to adjust that trim pot as well to get everything within range.
