Faulty (Recently Repaired) Behringer Europower EPX4000 Power Amplifier

Okay, I am at a loss and I really need some expert help.

The EPX4000 that I had sent for repair just faulted. I recently had this amplifier returned to me from Behringer's repair specialists, Diversified Audio, and the amp just faulted some moments ago. It switches on and off, the bottom two signal lights (-20) flash in tandem with the light surrounding the power button. The amp simply stays like that. I wasn't even playing anything on it as I just turned it on a few moments ago. In days prior, the amp worked fine and I've been using it in exact the same way as when I got it. Right now, there was no signal being fed to the amp and there have been no power fluctuations so I do not understand what might have happened.

I have a brand new Behringer Europower EPX4000 Power Amplifier that I haven't used and am afraid to connect it for fear of it too faulting.

I recently tested the two subwoofers I was running with this amp and even opted to run it in stereo mode because each Epik Legend was registering at 3.5 ohms on a multimeter. So I figured discretion was the better part of valor in this particular case. The subwoofers also tested fine with no faults so I doubt they are to blame.

Could the problem have been that I had the amplifier connected to a UPS and it perhaps was not getting enough power? Would plugging the remaining amp directly the wall solve my woes?

Considering that Behringer makes the worst stuff in the world, I am not surprised. Their guitar products are total garbage.

I guess I should have gone for Crown amps instead.
