GTmetrix error when Cloudflare is activated on my site

I am getting this error on GTmetrix:
An error occurred fetching the page: HTTPS error: SSL connect attempt failed error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure

according to other advice in this forum, I changed Minimum TLS to 1.3 and 1.2, but nothing happened and the site comes down!
Does anybody know what the problem is? and how can I deal with this?
my domain is:

Is your Cloudflare SSL certificate active yet?

And in the SSL/TLS tab, I have chosen the third case (ّFull SSL/TLS encryption).

If it’s already active and this happens, I’d recommend contacting Cloudflare support.

for handshake failure, I found that I need to select “Flexible” option for SSL/TLS encryption. But now I have another error :))
The page returned an error: 403 Forbidden

That’s most likely an error on your web server. Cloudflare usually does not return 403s.
