Laptop gets VERY hot, is it a fire hazard?

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

Why is the coffee not hot enough


Coffee should not be hotter then 98 degrees out of the machine. I have the same problem. before I brew I fill my cup with hot water and that helped me for a hotter cup of coffee. some machines allow you to adjust temperature, eg, Krups

Miele CVA4070 Coffee not hot enough




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

Coffee not hot enough


Ive had this machine for over 3 yrs now and agree the coffee could certainly be hotter. I usually blast hot stream from the milk jug by pressing the clean button for 5-10 secs. This does help. Also by having the cups heated up on top of the machine also helps. But i usually always give the completed coffee a 10 second blast in the microwave to get it to the temp i like. Its not ideal i know, but there seems no other way. Oh and make sure the temp is on high in the menu.

Hello We have a prima donna machine and


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.

What makes a perculator heat?


Hi, If you have a Farberware, Just look into the bottom of the pot. There you will see what looks like a hole in the pot. That is the high heating element, under the pot, when you go to make coffee the pump ( rod) sits into the hole. When you turn it on to make coffee the high heating element that the pump is in gets very hot and starts pushing the water that is in the hole to the top (that is called perking) the hot water goes over the the top and the drops into the coffee, This keeps going on until the thermostat feels it has reached 190 degrees or close to it and turns the high element off. While this is running it's cycle the keep warn is on helping the water to get hot, when the main element is off the keep warm element that runs around the bottom of the pot stays on all the time the pot is plugged in. Should the coffee get to cold the thermostat will turn the main heating element back on until it is back to 190. This system was developed by Farberware and a lot of makers copied it, But Farberware sold the pots and was known for a FAST and HOT cup of coffee. Farberware started making them in China and the pots are having a hard time keeping it up to American standers, and parts are very scarce.Farberware USA pots have been around a long,long time and are still going strong . I hope this helped you to understand how the pot works.

My Keurig coffeemaker shuts itself off, sometimes before I even brew a cup of coffee.


Hi,
This is a heating problem.
What usually happens when heating elements start to go, is that they get thinner. This means that the same energy goes through a thinner wire - so it actually gets hotter than it should (like a fuse).
There will be an over-temperature switch that will cut out (to prevent a fire or damage) - so this is tripping off.
Replace the element with a factory original - and try again.
Check for any blackened connections at the element.

How to use coffee maker


This type of coffee maker is made to keep hot water always ready to make another pot.
Pour water in ( at least 4 cups)then turn it on with the pot installed to catch the water. It takes a few minutes to get it hot . You might hear it heating. I can with mine.OK after the heating sound goes away put some coffee in the filter and in stall the filter.Now, fill the pot again (at least 4 cups) and pour the water in and put the pot ready to catch the coffee.It makes the coffee fast because it already heated the water from the first time you poured it in.When finished with the coffee just turn off the burner only.These types are made to stay on 24 hours a day.
I just turn mine off and let it heat up the water in the morning.

My keurig coffee maker is not hot enough


I had the same problem, then discovered that I was putting the K-cup in wrong. I was just placing it in the holder. You have to actually push it down until it clicks in place. Also make sure the 3 buttons are flashing, not just glowing, before you fill your cup. After you are done look at the bottom of the k-cup. If you only have one hole you did something wrong. It should have two holes.
