    We can probably repair the fan but you'd need to send us your system for us to check it out thoroughly.

Always shutdown"CPU Shutdown Temperature

Hello download a manual here:

Check the bios for any cpu overclocking settings
and set it back to standard settings.
Renew also the thermal cooling paste between the cpu and the cooling fan.
See if the cpu fan is running when the pc starts.

Be VERY carefull when you remove the cpu cooling fan
and take care not to damage the cpu.
And take antistatic precautions when you work on the mainboard.

If you have not tryed this before let a expert do the job.

Hope this will help you

The light is not working and the bulb is not blown.

These systems have many interlocks for safety. All doors must be closed completely. Also, there is usually a thermal fuse inside that may be blown. Did this stop during use or was it shutdown and now won't start again? If it was shutdown, perhaps it was unplugged before the fan stopped. If that is the case, the thermal fuse is likely to have been blown and will need to be replaced.

Let us know what you find.

My wire feeder keeps shutting off, how do i fix this problem

If the welder has a vent fan that doesn't work, it may be overheating with thermal shutdown. Look for a loose connection or intermittent relay inside the welder. If portable, check the power plug for a loose/broken connection. Hope this helps!

The system automatically shutdown

This could be anything, however I am suspicious of overheating. Does the computer actually just shut off or does it reboot?

Your heatsink/cooling fan may not be working correctly. See if you can install a utility which monitors the temperature of the CPU. If it keeps rising, this indicates a thermal problem and your fan and/or heatsink need replacing

WS55859 shuts off by itself after being on an hour or so, will turn back on after waiting 5 to 10 minutes

If the fan is running (they do fail fairly often), your power supply is progressing toward complete failure. Your description points to a thermal problem whatever the source.
Check fan operation first and if it is running, locate the power supply which will have the larger electronic components on it with several larger transformers and chokes.
Get the part number (if there seem to be two, the one on a label or stamped will be the completed board) and contact Mitsubishi's closest service center to inquire about the price of repair of the assembly or replacement cost. These may not be far apart.

Oven won't heat

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook

It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
