Issue with puck

I purchased a touch off puck at time of sale in 2018 with my Asteroid running LinusCNC. Factory configured by Probotix and worked fine. However, now it works intermittent. About once every 4th or 5th use, instead of moving Z down until it touches and then moving Z back up, it instead locks tight against the puck surface. Puts the Probe light on the display. Locks up the software. Only way out is to forcefully reboot the entire pc. I have resorted back to the old paper manual touch off to establish Z zero. Any ideas?
