Question about Samsung HT-WX70 Theater System

Samsun HT-WX70 overheating and shutting down

I have the same problem. I have removed the case and with a small house fan blowing directly down on the area where the fan is running the unit will stay powered up and running indefinetly. Is this the exhaust fan or is the unit simply overheating beyond what the exhaust fan can handle. I was led to believe that an exhaust fan runs pretty much at the same pace until it dies, no slowing down, etc.

The receiver in the Samsung ht-wx70 system that I have runs fine until all of a sudden I hear a loud bang and it shuts off. If I touch the unit, it is burning hot. I took the fan out and it works when I attached it to a 9v battery. Is it the fan or another problem that I should be looking at.

I turn on my system and it works ok for a couple of minutes. Then it started showing "fan check" for another minute, then shuts itself down. Is it the fan? How can I check that?

To answer your question, yes, it is the fan. There will be screws holding the top cover onto the unit; remove these, and find the fan(also remove any dust you find inside, as this also could render the fan useless due to airflow problems). Make sure it's not jammed or clogged or anything such, and plug the unit in, turn it on, and make sure the fan turns on(in some cases, it waits a maximum of one minute to do so.) If it does not turn on after one minute, then a new fan is needed. Any fan with the same size and power connector will do.

Fan check flashes, then the unit shuts off. I found a replacement fan, will changing it solve the problem?

I am unsure if replacing the fan will work, but to test it, put a vaccum cleaner near to the fan, the rush of air should keep the fan spinning and fool the sensor, see if the unit then powers on, if it does then you know the fan is the faulty item.

According to the instruction manual you turn off the unit and press the Stop button on main unit for at least 5 seconds. Didn't help me with my problem (shutting down for no apparent reason) maybe it will help you with your problem.

System turns off by itself

My unit said "protection", "goodbye" so I opened it up and found a capacitor to one of the speakers had blown, right by the fan. It's a 35 cent part and a simple solder job. The hardest part was getting the face plate off the dvd tray so I could get to the circuit board.
