Might be loss of the DC to the control panel (or the microcontroller
that runs it if that's separate).  Not sure why it would come back
after (am I reading too much into the above?) power cycling the
machine, though.  Overheating?  Would expect a cooling off period
if that were it.

Not sure if the regulator would be on the control board or the relay
board.  Got spares?

There's one way to find out if a man is honest: ask him;
if he says yes, you know he's crooked.  -- Twain
