AES AE3 + Bedini woes

Greetings all.

My first post here in the Asylum. I'm new to tubes, having just purchased my first piece of gear in the form of a used AES AE-3. Unpacked it today, put the tubes in (using a sock on my hand), hooked it up to my Bedini 150mk2 and sat back to enjoy.

No left channel. Lots of hum.

I assume the hum is from a ground loop, so I'll not worry about that yet, but the absence of sound from the left is more than troubling. I swapped out interconnects to no avail. Let things sit for a few, and when I came back the power amp was very hot. I shut everything down and won't touch it until I can get some info. Any thoughts?
