Default B&K AV6000 Sers II Running HOT

Hello,
I just bought a very used B&K AV6000 Ser II power amp that had a few issues. Its main power line fuse holder was lost so I was able to put a new one in and one of the speaker five way binding posts was broken off and that was an easy fix as well. With these issues, the amp was very cheap. Now that I have those items fixed, the amp seems to be running very hot, even at idle. All six chanls are hot. No DC on the outputs. All six chnls sound about the same, a little pinched sounding and when there is a lot of bass they seem to all distort just a bit.

Any common problems with these amps that may be causing these issues? Bad electrolytics?

Thanks,

McJerry
