Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

the only things that can cause this are a wiring / connection problem at the back of the cluster or running to the cluster, or an internal failure of the cluster. there is nothing beyond these two things that could do it. I would suggest swapping in another cluster to test briefly if it works or not as this will determine if it is your cluster or the wiring/connections
