Data refresh error

I scheduled a 3 refresh a day for my SQL dataset and I have regularly the following refresh failure - at least once a day. But the 2 other refresh are working. What's wrong ? It happens since 5 days


Processing error: Microsoft SQL: Server provided routing information, but timeout already expired.

I have no gateway, so no timeout setting.
I have 3 scheduled period a day : 6h, 10h30 and 15h
It failed always when the refresh is planned at 6h AM.
The schedule at 10h30 is sometimes successful, sometimes not (same for the refresh at 15h). When successful, the refresh takes about 14 minutes to complete -> why is it so slow ? My database contains only a few rows and the refresh through Power BI Desktop takes.... 10 seconds!
It seems very slow and very unstable.
Last refresh failed: Wed Mar 24 2021 06:17:12 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)
There was an error when processing the data in the dataset.
