5 year Apex classic periodic stop/on


I have been using my Apex classic for 5 year and pretty stable in pass 5 year. Today I was at home and my ATO overflow alert start and I found partial my devices connect to Apex stop. Two main pump (put on "ON" instead "Auto") still working but WaV and BK skimmer stop. It back on after 20 minutes, but run for another ~50 minutes then stop (note I am still check elapse time).

I thought it affect my device put on "Auto" mode (since main pump still working), so I try one involved device from "auto" to "on" just for testing. Unfrotunally, when next time it happen, that device also went "off" as in "auto" mode.

I observe all my Energy Bar status LED turn from solid green to flash while device (Wav, Skimmer, Doser, etc...) stop working.

I need help here. I love Apex and 5 years great time so far. What is going on?

Any clue of what happen? Thanks.

Update 1(2019.9.30 8:07pm): I found my main pump fallback = ON, which could be why it is still on, while most other device fallback is OFF. I am now turn some device fallback to ON to test.
