Check for chain wear. Who ever replaced the derailleur should have done that, but still...
How: 12 links should be 12 inch. If it is more (say... 1/8) replace the chain. If it is even more, cassette and possibly chain rings need to be replaced as well. Maybe even with less wear...

Next thing to check is derailleur hanger alignment, then try to fine tune the derailleur.
