Hi there,

What I could suggest is changing the health check from HTTP to TCP.

DigitalOcean Loadbalancer TCP config

Also, make sure that the check port matches the one that your backend service is running on.

I recently answered a similar question, you can find the full discussion here:

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
