PROBLEM: giant hum coming from 7060A

Hi All, I'm here hoping someone from Genelec will take notice of this post (I've already emailed them and received no reply).

I have a pair of 1030As and the corresponding 7060A subwoofer. Weeks ago a very loud hum (60hz maybe?) came screaming out of the sub and into the 2 monitors. There was no audio running to any of the monitors, but the power on each of them was on. After cutting off power to the 1030As I could still hear the tone coming from the sub. I cut the power to the sub and the tone stopped.

I re-routed my audio outs to the (2) 1030As (bypassing the sub) and all is okay. I tried giving power to the sub again and the tone still shoots out from it, so I am stuck now with I guess a broken sub? Has anyone else experienced this?
Does Genelec have any experience with this problem? I am thinking it might be a ground issue but I'm not sure.

The sub is very heavy and I'd like some info so I can consider my options....repairing it would likely require hiring someone to help me lug it to a repair shop and back via taxi. I would also like a recommendation on what repair shop in New York City would be best. Or maybe purchasing a new sub would be more economical? Info from Genelec would be appreciated here. Thank you for any info you can provide. Cheers and happy mixing.
