Why isMy Acer aspire gettting really hot, would replacing the battery help?

Sometimes, the computer gets really hot because the "ventilation" (cooling) system (fan, etc.) is not working properly. Normally, if it gets too hot, i.e. to an unacceptable level, the system will shut down. Or, it will catch on fire.
Yes, it's known that some battery will get too hot ... and potentially damage the system. So, if you already know that the cooling system is working properly, then try replacing the battery.

If the fan is noisy and the laptop is running hot, then most likely the fan is faulty and spinning slowly. Therefore the fan is not providing sufficent air flow to cool the laptop's CPU. The fan needs to be replaced and possibly the heatsink assembly needs cleaned to remove dust buildup.

Self cleaning oven the fan will not go off after

Self cleaning ovens usually use very hot temperatures. Therefore if your fan is designed to help your oven cool, it will run until your oven is cool. Leave it running until your oven is cool and it should stop. It it does not let me know.

My honda v65 magna runs hot in stop and go traffic

V65s are notorious for running hot in stop and go traffic as it has a liquid coolant system and no cooling fins on the heads or cylinders. An easy fix is to wire in a switch to turn on your electric radiator cooling fan and switch the fan on and leave it on when you are riding in town.

Flat tv is hot when used

What do you mean? Excessively hot or hot. The televisions tend to run warm, but if it is too warm usually there will be malfunctioning, check your cooling vents to make sure they are not filled with lint, and listen to the fans run through the cooling ports. If you do not hear a fan and you think your TV is too hot most likley it is the fan, if the fan is on and the vents are clean. The TV is probally at its normal operating temp.
