Blown Analyzer Port 1 on Four Port Analyzer, Can I use another pair of ports?

I am using a switch in my test setup with some limiters on ports 1 & 2 of the analyzer. The limiters do not always clamp in time, and in this case port 1 was blown out on the analyzer (verified by turning correction off and connecting a load to the port and comparing against known data).

 

My question is whether I can use another set of ports, such as 3 & 4 on the analyzer - E5071C - for testing or if I have to send the analyzer for repair? Has anyone played around with this?
