What do you mean with flasher stork? and flasher can????
I presume that one of the 2 the combination flasher relay is?
Normally when 1 bulb burns out, the flasher starts blinking faster. So when it flashes slower, i would think that a wrong type bulb is installed, which uses too much current. Is any of the bulbs brighter then normal? Did you change a lightbulb lately?

Re: blinker

higher current bulb should make it blink faster as they use a warp switch to cause the blink. check all the socket connections for corrosion etc(pull the bulbs out) check and or clean all youre ground connections including at the battery its likely a ground issue

Don't think so. The combination flasher contains active electronic Integrated Circuitry (IC) elements, no warp switch to let it flash.
One bulb burnt increases the flash intensity (but lowers the current), so my thinking is then that with a lower flash intensity, the current should be too high.
