Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, is a volt/multi-meter available?

And are you comfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach?

This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.

And yes on the phone call soon as the system has cleared the "Status: ... failure"
Can you please check on your end?
...and contact Customer Service?
