Autobiasing tube amp failure


The smell of electronic burning alerted my wife and I. I turned the amp off and removed the power chord. I opened the casing and couldn’t see anything wrong. But there was definitely a strong burnt electronic smell. Later investigation showed that one of tubes had gone way out of bias and caused one of the resistors to be overloaded. 

My question is how can this be prevented in future? Autobias means no way of reviewing the tube settings and performance.

The tubes and amp are less than 150 hours into their life.

Occasional tube failure is inherent in vacuum tube components.
This happens with tube amps i had CJ Premier 5,ARC D150 etc i now use a solid state amp as i hated always getting them fixed.Consider yourself lucky as a few times they blew out my Tweeters.
You state that the amp only has 150 hours on it, was it purchased new? If so, have you contacted the mfg?

A tube failure won't blow out a tweeter! Tweeters fail because the amp being used is underpowered and is making too much distortion when driven too hard.

Autobias assumes that the tubes are OK- it usually can't do much about a tube that is arcing or shorted. If you are concerned about this, I would consider having the amp modified with fuses in series with the cathodes of the tubes to prevent them from damaging the amp.
For Tube Amplifiers  Auto bias No Good Ever , for it adds extra circuitry and resistors. It average each channel .
Manual bias far better  you adjust  each tube individually 
And when a tube does go, just review  the new tube,  recheck others and done .it takes may be s minute per tube some compsnies  still want you to use a meter way out dated.,  I had my own Simpson meters added and switch per channel  ,seperste volt meter is primitive and s pain in the ass.
Good suggestions from all. Who can do the mods suggested?
Out of curiosity, who manufactures your amp?
To say that autobias is " no good ever" is hyperbole. I own 3 tube amplifiers, 2 are manual bias and one is autobias. All 3 are very fine amplifiers but the autobias amplifier is every bit as reliable (if not more so, 8.5  years of nearly daily use ) and the best sounding. No component or part is perfect and things occasionally need to be replaced or repaired, stuff happens. To universally denigrate autobias is silly in my opinion. Implementation as with all things involving audio is the overriding factor.
