Tasks run constantly in a loop

I have 2 tasks on one site scheduled: one daily and another weekly. Recently they started to run continuously every 5 minutes, nothing changed in their schedule. Both workflows are manually started and just 1 action to send an email with notification. SP 2013 version.
After the first incident, I just deleted the tasks and recreated new ones - that helped for 2 days they were running as expected, but then it happened again. What it might be?

HI, Same issue appeared today in SP2016

Hello @Mhijazi,

Could you try to recreate the Scheduler tasks and check how it works after that?

we can not recreate Scheduler as the issue on multiple webs under same sitecollection

Hello @Petr,
Can you please check what might cause this issue?
Do they have limits on number of WF schedulers in sitecollection,or timeout issue that can cause this issue?

Hello @Mhijazi,

There are no limits to this, but could you clarify how many workflow schedulers do you have? Could you try o disable some of them to check if it helps with the issue?

Hi @Petr,
The scheduler is being used by multiple departments, I do not have exact number but for sure more than +30, currently work around is to make Plumsail timerjob in CA to fire once a day, I can not do testing as duplicate emails will be sent to internal and external users
