Just out of interest, could you try turning off SMF Caching, (if it's turned on).

Admin > Configuration > Server Settings > Caching. set the SMF caching level to No caching

Had some really strange results on three of my sites with this turned on, and so has someone else that I know of.
Is that in the admin panel or folder?
with me changing to maintenance mode the forum no longer loads get a 404 error page

At this point I'd be talking to your host and asking them if they have Varnish enabled, and if so to turn it off.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Ok just renamed my settings.php  then renamed my settings_bak to settings.php and the forum will display in maintenance mode :o  maybe my settings.php file got corrupt along with something else ??? ::)

...seriously, talk to your host about Varnish. That's the best explanation for the symptoms you have right now.
