Shorted wire at the magnet connections, bad diode or bad transistor on the board. The manual will tell you which transistor is associated with the magnet. If it’s not a broken or shorted wire, which you should be able to see, most likely the transistor has failed. Test one of the other working transistors with a meter and see if the one associated with the magnet reads the same.

Quoted from xbmanx:

Is that something that’s fixable or is it a magnet board replacement situation?

they are all fixable, if it’s one of those three things I mentioned. I have a pro so not familiar with the magnet board.

Quoted from xbmanx:

Is it weird that there is no technician alert indicating an issue?

No, blown fuses don't trigger alerts. Typically, bad switches trigger alerts.
