You did the right thing in turning off your PS3 and then holding the power 1/0 button for more than 5 seconds. Since you having true heat problems and your Console is freezing, you have no choice other than to Call SONY at 1-800-345-7669 for support. You may have trouble getting though so email your problem to Sony Support at the following URL http://www.us.playstation.com/corporate/ConsumerServices
I run a Playstation Repair business, and I am unable to get Parts for the PS3. They are very scarce, as Christmas is coming, and my source for parts is getting sucked up at high prices.

Sounds like it is a problem with the fan it will only freeze when the unit gets hot if it is ok for the first minute then the best thing to do is replace the fan as this should be fast these heat up really quick if you have the problem as soon as you switch on then their is not much you can do but if it ok for first minute or so then replaace the fan this should solve you problem check the fan is easy to turn and not stiff if it is stiff then the fan needs replacing if it is easy to turn then it is probably the unit itself maybe woth replacing the fan before you try anything else

Its the environment a dusty one? Have you blown out the unit to clean it out by chance? How long have you had it?
