Doc here,

Usually Too much load on the flasher..(too many lights or an indirect short)

Or the flasher unit may be going bad..

Slow or no flash is too little current, or a light bulb is dead.

The flasher works as such, it has a tungsten contact inside it that heats up under the load of the circuit (light bulbs). (light on)

As it reaches top heat, it opens, reduces the load. (light off)

The tungsten cools down it then recontacts the load again..(light on)

This cycle goes on until power is removed.

Doc

What do you mean by "Too much load on the flasher"?What would be the main cause of that?

Might need a "heavy-duty" flasher unit. It's made for multiple lights on the circuit, such as trailering, or cars with multiple rear lights.
