My f f was layed flat for 1 hour it keeps cutting off every 5 seconds

Refrigeration systems have oil in them. Refrigerators are designed to be operated oriented one way and in your case, that's standing up. When layong it down, it allows the oil to accumulate in places it wouldn't otherwise and can lock up your compressor. The hopeful fix is to let it sit upright longer and try again. If that doesn't work, you might try laying it face down the opposite way, standing it back up for a few days and then firing it back up.

Does xbox run better upright or flat?

Xbox 360 is made to purposely run either way to the players benifit. Everything works find upright or flat. if you lay it flat though, make sure you have ways of air getting in and out of it. There is a tiny chance of overheating. Performance ways they are the same. I dont like to run it straight up. I dont know why but yah, it works either way.

My xbox wont eject while its upright only when its laying down?

Your disk tray is out of place. unless you want to take a chance of either damaging the xbox or voiding a warranty, take it in and get it fixed. If you do want to fix it direct question me.

Why wont my xbox 360 elite read discs? i put disc in and it comes up reading and then open tray

My only questions are does the console say the discs are damaged in any way? and is the console standing up right?
If the discs are scratched in any way then that might cause the 360 to not read the disc and sometimes having a console play the disc upright (example of upright 360) for a long time can cause dis function when trying to play discs, so try playing the discs with the console on its side (side example) These are my solutions to the problem but you can try these: Solution 1 Solution 2

It is making a constant winding sound. Very loud

Don't worry! It's not going to melt it's just hot or the top of the disc is scatching on somthing.This problem usualy acurs when it's standing upright,if you lay it down it should be O.K.

3 red lights on xbox 360 tryed rebooting, unpugging everything and rebooting, also lying down and rebooting, taking fan off and rebooting still nothing happening . . .please help it was working 6 hours ago...

Unfortunately the Xbox 360 will need to be professionally repaired.
These red light errors usually happen with little warning. Sometimes you may see strange colors or it will start to freeze, however often times it strikes without warning.
The main cause of the red light errors is overheating. In the future try to keep the console in a well ventilated area and always play with the console standing upright rather than laying flat. When the Xbox 360 lays flat the entire bottom surface area gets very little air flow, causing the console to run much hotter than if it is upright.
If your warranty is up or you just don't feel like dealing with Microsoft; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers a flat rate repair service. We even pay for return shipping. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Good Luck!

My 360 just froze up [ unit is still locked in

unplug the power box from the wall for a few seconds and then try to tun it back on if the problem continues then it could be either a cooling problem or a game problem. check the game to make sure its clean. and be sure your 360 is laying FLAT not standing up the main air flow for the consel is located on the right side of the consel (the opposite side of the hardrive) keep atleast 4 inches on that side

I have a xbox 360, and its braeking the middle of my games when I leave it turned on for more than a couple of hours

If you have it set up vertically try setting it down horizontally. My brother's XBox 360 had this problem but he simply exchanged it and now always keeps it laying down rather then standing up. Same problem with my cousins 360, solved it simply by setting it on its side
