This isn't an expensive repair for a qualified shop - but I would suggest not continuing to test your shutdown circuit. What's happening is that HV (high Voltage) is builds beyond tolerances and the shutdown circuit turns your unit off to keep from causing any severe damage. If it failed you could likely burn out the SMPS or cause some substantial damage..
