I'm not sure if someone mentioned this in the thread already, but Kepler had 4 gears which allowed it to be positioned, it requires 3 to be
functional. One of the 4 died a year ago, leaving 3, enough for operation. The one which recently died was the 2nd to fail. This leaves only 2 gears,
not enough to control Kepler's facing.
My point being, if it were an attempt by some outside force than it took them two tries to disable it. Faulty equipment, nothing more, nothing less.
