One great amp !!! I would send it in to kicker. It looks like you may have one or more mosfets that are either shorted or on the way out. Does the amp have any protection lights that may give an indication of the source? Some thing that come to mind are: Shorted outputs, Speaker wires shorted or touching ground, power supply mosfet's

Yesterday by juicer kicked of the kitchen breaker? Twice.

You may just be overloading the circuit. Easiest correction - unplug something else that's running (or turn off a light) on the same circuit and see if the breaker still shuts off.
But wait - also important - was there any burning smell? If so, this is dangerous. It's a short circuit that occurs when a "hot" wire (black) touches another hot wire or touches a "neutral" wire (white) in one of your outlets. You should not use that outlet and have an electrician look at it. Or it could be a ground fault (similar to the short circuit - when a hot wire touches the ground wire on the side of a metal outlet box which is connected to the ground wire. For either of these, you need an electrician.

Shut down automaticaly

Not much to go on, "shut down automaticaly" on battery or AC or both? A computer will shut down, or hibernate, if thats what you mean, that's a power setting? If a computer overheats it will shut down automaticaly to save the components from heat damage. If there is dust in the fan and vents it will shut down. If it is not getting sufficent air flow from vents on the bottom of the laptop through the vents on the side. One option is a Laptop Cooler.Is it shutting down when you are on it? When it's left unattended? Respod to this post for further assistance.

Have you tried new rca jacks????? If not try them...If the problem persists, it may be the preouts on your stereo.....I have ran into that problem with a few stereos, especially pioneer.....thumping sound with the sound turned down, weird sounds etc.....If it still does it maybe try one of those line level converters.....(i used one in my last car when my preouts were messing up....)I just spliced into my rear outs

Amp kicks off after a few minutes of play. It will play again after a few minutes, but then kicks off again.

My best guess is that your over loading the amp. Check and see if the amp is hot when it cuts off. Most amps have a "safety" cutoff that will shut it off if it get to hot

My koiler car amp shuts off and gets hot. when i shut off the car stereo and turn it on, it kicks back on and works till it gets out again.

Sounds like an overload...check the impedence of your speaker system and make sure that your amp is rated as stable at that impedence

Kenwood amp kac-x401m

How long will the bass play before the amp kicks into protection mode and how loud are you listening to it? I've noticed with my amps that if they don't have enough air flow they will get hot and kick into protection mode. They will also kick into protection mode if you are running it at more than it can handle. Check your adjustments on both your amp and the head unit. Make sure you are not running more bass than the amp can handle.
