I have a Yamaha HTR5940 receiver that has a strange issue.

It seems to shut down randomly every 1 or 2 days regardless of volume levels. I cannot replicate this behavior on demand as cranking the volume up doesn't cause shutdown.

It is running 2 sets of speakers concurrently one 6.1 on stereo (both A and B).

The timer function isn't on.

If there was a short wouldn't turning up the volume immediately trigger shutdown?

I will try disconnecting the power to reset the unit.

Bad speaker connections can cause these symptoms. Disconnect all speakers just leave it running and see if the AVR still shuts down randomly.
