M2000 heat causing trouble?

I recently noticed my M2000 getting extremely hot, as in so hot it hurts to touch. The fan seems to work sometimes, but now it will randomly refuse to boot up, and it constantly locks up.

Sometimes it will lock up before anything even finishes loading in Windows, sometimes it will take a few minutes then do it. I have tried it in Safe Mode and it still EVENTUALLY locks up every time. The longest I have been able to use it before it freezes is 5 minutes.

Any ideas?

Are the fans clear from dust and debris? this is a major factor, if it keeps freezing you may have partially burnt out the processor or other component.

What would cause hose from pump to tank on a porter cable pancake comressor get extremely hot when running


I too had noticed the heated compression rubber hose.. the older models for smaller united were made to last longer and used 1/4" copper tubing and flang fittings kence, less rubber seals to fail over the long run, although porta cable says the compressor has a three year limited warranty for this product.. Mine has started to leak just over a year and only used a few times maybe twice a month. So even ubder light duty this unit has failed not just the drain plug seal,, but internal seals inside the compressor. I have returned this ubit for a full refund. So to answer your question, "what would cause a rubber hose to get extremely hot" it is normal for all compression tubings and hoses to run hot to the touch when running long periods but it is also a problem when poor engineering and lack of quality components such as rubber seals fail and cause leaks and so causing excessive heat and internal damage to other seals under such extremes..May I suggest you contact porta cable and ask them about your trouble with the product and their three year limited warranty

This is a sure sign of pending compressor failure (high heat and head pressure, Since that 2 inch section comes directly from the compressor.For verification,
Remove the back cover, and place your hand on the compressor.(careful,may be hot) should be able to leave your hand on compressor without burning.
Check condensor fan in that same area , It may be not running

My whirlpool side-by-side is getting hot on strip between doors but everything seems to be working fine. Is there a solution? What if it becomes extremely hot??


It will not become extremely hot. It is heated by a thing called a mullion heater. It warms the area so it doesn't sweat and mold in the summertime. It is perfectly normal.

Kenmore fridge not getting cold


first thing to heck would be the condenser fan motor which is located int the compressor compartment pull the refrig away form the wall remove cardboard cover and inspect the fan motor that you will see. check for obstruction or if the fan motor is seized. if this motor fails it will cause the compressor to run extremely hot then shut off on internal motor protector. if you determine the motor is bad you can place a house fan behind unit blowing on compressor area to keep unit working until you get it repaired.
Thanks Peyton

Maytag refrigerator MSD2758GEW divider panel hot to touch


What you could check is that the fan at the back of the unit, where the compressor is located, is working, as this could also cause a heat build up. The partition between the two sides does generally tend to get hot due to the door circuit, to prevent ice buildup around the door. But people tend to notice when something is different. You are also right to check for dust underneath the cabinet as the condenser tends to be layered. If you have already cleaned it all out then you have probably done as much as you can. If you are still concerned contact a fridge guy. Hope this is of some help.
