Default short in 300b

a few months ago I had a short in a Svetlana 300B. As a result not the BG went upstairs but my caddock resistor measured only a few hundreds ohms afterwards. This caused the second 300B (JJ) also to go to higher spheres. I discovered the bad caddock of course after the second accident
It is of course also possible that the caddock started the whole tragic thing in the first place. Perhaps we should start a thread about failing caddocks under 300B's

I'm very sorry to have caused confusion. The thing is, a BG failed in my 300B amp (not a Caesar) and immediately afterward I read about 4 other cases so I wanted to know if this a known error.
I'm sure he meant no harm
No, of course I didn't.
