BLTouch has become unreliable

I have been using my Ender 6 with BLTouch without any real problems (after the initial faulty BLTouch was replaced) having only set the levelling up once when I installed it.

Out of the blue about two weeks ago, and having just completed a successful print, the next one was squirting filament about 5mm above the bed. Nothing seemed loose and there was nothing I could really do apart from reset the bed and recalibrate the BLTouch.

All seemed well until the same thing just happened, a successful print followed by a birds nest hanging from the print head.

If it drifted off slowly, I would suspect that something mechanical was loose but to suddenly go wrong has me scratching my head.

Anybody any ideas?
