You've already deduced that 2 red rings means overheating. Here is a list of what to do to make sure there is no external reason for the overheat. It's all pretty obvious stuff but it sometimes helps to go through it methodically (My friend had his sat on the carpet - he got 2 red rings after about 3 hours)

  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.

  • As it happens my X360 has been sat on top of my Amp for 2 years although I rarely have it switched on :P

    Just by cleaning the coils and the keeping it shutdown should not have any effect on the freon in the compressor. It is only used to cool down the coils so that the air blows over them is also made cold. Please keep it running for a while and check if the problem persists. There is a chance that the air is first cooling down the ducts in the refrigerator and then afterwards the whole inner body. That can warm down the air a bit. If the problem persists, this can be a freon issue.

    Central heat does not blow hot air, just warm air weakly


    Sounds like some of the elements are not working. You being in Florida they may not have put very many elements in. It was 61 degrees last week. I know because I'm a Dolphin Fan. You will need a current sensing meter to check the elements.

    Incessent beeping and won't boot


    you told that your PC was ok last night. and again told at morning when you started it then it started giving beep. there may have 2-3 problems.

    1. your processor has become loose, so unplug and plug the processor again correctly.

    2. cooling fan can't cool the heat sinker properly. so test it that if the cooling fan is working properly.

    3. The RAM can be loose. So test the RAM. Unplug the RAM and then plug it perfectly.

    but you told that you PC is starting and then shutting down giving a beep. so i think you PC problem is number 2. and I hope you follow the number 2.

    Starting by itself


    Time for a service call. Should not turn on by itself at any cause. Circuit board is my guess. May be cheaper/easier to get new microwave. My first one lasted about 15 yrs--and the circuit board (touchpad) died. Bought new microwave oven.
