Agilent 8757D Hangs Up

Good day.

I work as an RF Engineer and improving the test equipment's yield is part of my job. We are using Agilent 8757 in testing our products and during the tests (1 out of 4 tests), this equipment hangs up. Our Agilent 8757 are approximately 2 years old now and we are using them 24/7. Our immediate solution is to preset the SNA before every test but we cannot always resort to this since our test procedures are automated and its goal is to minimize the need of manning the stations.

I would like to ask if there's a way we can prevent hanging up from occurring. Does restarting the SNA's every once in a while will address our problem? Also, is 8757 designed to run 24/7 or does it need to be shut down for a while?

Your advice in this is very much appreciated.

Thank you.
