Some Chinese fixtures don't come with much in the way of (or any) instructions.  If this is the case, raising a specific fader may signal a lamp to turn off (or on to restart) at a specified DMX level.  It is usually a fader at or near the end of the chain of control faders.  I've had customers bring lights in with that "feature" (or problem) that they didn't know about.  I've also seen a lot of problems with the nylon covered "butt" crimp connectors, especially those located in the moving yolk portion of the light.  The connector wasn't crimped tightly enough and some wires pull out with a very light touch.

Hey Sam. Is it possible your lights have a cool down setting? My big Chauvet movers have a setting for shutting off the lamp while the fans continue to run so as to cool the lamp down before shutting the unit completely off. Supposed to extend the life of the lamps.

Even if your movers have this setting, not sure how it would have gotten into that setting without you doing it.

Just a thought.
