Thise PSU units are too weak to start with, I recommend you get a stronger PSU for that amp.

The PSU shuts down automatically if there is a short or overcurrent condition.

First make sure whether this is the case, disconnect the amp and see what happens.

Nope, that's ok, I think.

Anyway, BW will replace it free of charge.
