Can choice of cables cause an amp to blow?

I have a 5 channel amp - not mentioning the brand at this stage. It has blown twice the 2.5 years I have owned it, and needed to be sent back to the factory twice - and it has taken quite a long time, each time. Service at the manufacturer wanted to know my specific set up - I am using the speaker cable that my dealer recommended, and installed, but the manufacturer "strongly suspects" that my cable choice, and possibly length of cable, is causing the amp to oscillate and then blow. The cable length isn't dramatic, by the way.

Thoughts appreciated.
