Check the last paraffin. Does it smell like Xylene?

What would cause the tissues when taken out of the processor at the end
of the cycle to feel "slippery", almost greasy?  I was off and back
today and when the tech took the cassettes out of the processor, she
mentioned this and they are not cutting well at all.  Our processor was
just changed yesterday and as far as I can tell from smell, all reagents
are in order!  Where should I start?????  Thanks so much for answering
this so quickly..I am stymied!!
