Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook
The bottom of my laptop heats up very fast and gets VERY hot, hotter than a cup of coffee. I'm glad to know it's not just mine, that it's the make of the laptop, but is this dangerous in any way? Is it a fire hazard?
While its not a fire hazard and most likely will not burst into flames, if it is running that hot, then it is probably damaging the interal parts of the laptop (CPU, Motherboard, etc)
When it reaches a certain temperature, it should shut itself off to protect the CPU from damage of overheating.
When you are using the laptop, is there space between the bottom of the laptop and the place that it's sitting on? (Desk, table, your lap, chair armrest, etc) The laptop needs to have that space to allow for airflow for proper cooling inside. You can purchase laptop coolers for relatively low prices, but if it is getting as hot as a cup of coffee, especially when you use it for a very short time, I would contact HP and have it serviced, one of the cooler fans may have failed. 1-800-HP-INVENT

Let me guess you have a Toshiba
the system will shut down when it gets too hot.
what you need to do is clean you filters and if pasible use one of thos laptop external fan.

Here is what I would do;
1. Determine if you have noticed a change. i.e was the coffee hotter in the past or has it always been this temperature. If the cups are cold or the amount of water used for each cup is small then the resulting coffee will be cooler than if warm cups were used or if the amount of water used was larger. Also if the water is not hot enough you will not get a good Crema and coffee taste will not be correct.
2. Assuming the problem is not '1' above then the likely causes is the flow through water heater. This heater is used to heat water for coffee and also for the hot water. So if the hot water pipe is also not producing hot water then you know it's a problem with the flow through water heater or power control of this module. In addition to the actual heater there is a temperature limiter, temperature fuse and a temperature sensor. If some heating occurs then it is not the temperature fuse. But it could be a fault in the actual heater, the sensor or the limiter. These components are at mains voltage and thus identification of the fault and replacement of defective parts should ONLY be performed by a trained Miele technician. So if this is the problem its best to call Miele.
I hope this helps. Regards

Check your programmed temperature setting; perhaps your machine has been set at low or medium.
Following are the instruction for Setting the Temperature from the manual for the ESAM6700.
Setting the Temperature
1. Press the P button to enter the menu;
2. Press the < or > until "Set Temperature" is displayed;
3. Press the OK icon;
4. Turn < or > until the required temperature (high, medium, low) is displayed;
5. Press the OK icon to confirm (or the ESC icon to cancel the operation);
6. Press the button to exit the menu.
For a hotter coffee, before delivery rinse the appliance through by pressing the Rinse icon and confirming with the OK icon. Hot water
flows out of the coffee spouts and heats the internal circuit of the machine so that the coffee delivered will be hotter.
For an even hotter coffee, heat the cups by rinsing them with the hot water.
