Notes on non-nominal systems: Suit 5 was once more inspected inside the RAM. Louis (Engineer) and Hippolyte (GreenHab Officer) diagnosed the issue. It seems like there is a short-circuit at one of the ventilation’s connections (see linked pictures). The two wires connections are touching in some cases, causing the suit and the ventilation to shut down. A repair would require to re-solder this connection.
