Belkin cooling pads are very low quality. I know because I owned one, and it shorted out after only a few months of use.
Not sure what you mean about you calling us and us replacing it for you. You could consult the repair directory on the site but it would be wiser to contact Belkin and see if you have a warranty for your product.
The only thing I can tell you is to not buy a Belkin cooling pad again.

Over heatin and quit rezponding

this problem is probably due to fan being clogged with dust, a simple solution is to get compressed air can and spray out all the air ports on the side and under the laptop, if that does not work it will need and internal clean with new thermal compound for the cpu

Hi I got a belkin CoolSpot Anywhere Ultra cooling pad for my laptop but it doesn't work now because the usb is bent. How do I fix this?

Just cut the end off that is bent. Locate a cheap USB extension cord (6 inch is all you need) Cut the 6 inch cord in half and strip the insulation back 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Do the same application with the end attached to the cooling device. With a soldering iron (25 Watt pencil iron) solder the like ends of the exposed wires together. If you have Shrinkable insulation that is a good cover and simple to use. If not use a good insulation tape to cover the soldered wires. That is it!

Gets hot underneath

That's normal, I suggest you use a laptop dock with a fan at the bottom. You can purchase it to any computer shop near you. It looks like this: The 2 holes has a fan. resmie.jpg

Belkin router problems

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a cooling pad and some of the blades have broken off is it possible to buy a new fan piece cooling stand f5l001

LOL it's just a single standard fan in there!  Replace the whole fan with one with similar specs (though of course you can get one with UV LEDs if you want.)  You're welcome to contact Belkin with the question you strangely placed here if you want Factory Original (as if such a thing was still preferred) parts.

Acer Extensa 5630G it's overheating a lot!

Cooling pad will be best bet, extend the life of the laptop. They are annoying sometime but got to weigh options. Cooling pads plug into usb so that is a plus, dont have to plug them in wall. Try to find a real slim one, i got a real slim one, not the strongest fan but it keeps my laptop at a good temperature.

Belkin cooling pad

i called the best buy here where i live and told them what you said and they told me that as long as it is covered under manufactured warranty you can bring it back to the store for an exchange for another one so take it back to the store and tell them what i have told you and hopefully you will get this matter solved and if not ask for the manager and tell him and if that doesnt work take it to another best buy store and try it. i hope this works for you and let me know. good luck!
