HELP: Custom Neve Compressor L side only works when Stereo Linked


I have an IJ Research Custom Stereo Neve Compressor and limiter, made of original vintage Neve cards and original Trannys from those original compressors and preamps.

It is a combination of a 2254 and a 33609, where the gain makeup is the 2254 and detector is the 33609.

Sounds totally amazing and super flexible too.

Today at session the left channel's compressor did not work.
Only the Gain makeup and the limiter section worked.

However, when I switched the Stereo Link ON, the right channel controlled the left channel as if Right side Compressor is on both sides (Not summed to Mono, just same compression on both channels, and some functions on the Left did work).
When i disabled the Stereo link, The Left side did not do compression anymore.

Does this sound like a Short somewhere inside? I recently had my gear moved to a new room and this is the first time im using it in the new room.
Can it be that something moved inside...?
Any advice before i get it to an expensive tech?
Could it be something simple? Where would you look?
