Default Freds Hot

Ok so i Build a Fred brige Rectifier for one channel of my amplifier useing 4 freds and 4 caps that peter daniel gave me.

When powered up it works but starts getting warm on the heat sink and the one channel that it is powering for my small amps HUM.

Any idea's Any one..

Id like to use fred's but if they introduce HUM and lots of un nessasary heat then ill use standard Brige Recifiers
