Runs way too hot, overheats and shuts down. Besides geneal external cleaning hints, any suggestions? Like how to run fans at max rpm always? Or how to open it up to thoroughly clean it?

Check that all of the air vents are left unblocked and that your fan is spinning and expelling warm/hot air. It is recommended you use your laptop on a hard flat surface to ensure some airflow under the laptop. You could try purchasing a can of compressed air and blowing it into the vents to loosen up any built up of dust and hair.
If you are skilled enough you could open the laptop up to completely clean the fans and heatsink. Whilst it is open you can remove the heatsink, clean the old thermal paste off of the CPU and GPU and apply a very thin, evenly spread layer of fresh thermal paste. Then put the machine back together.
As for the fans, download a free application called SpeedFan and read through it. It will monitor your core temperatures and it has some options for controlling fans if your hardware allows it.
Hope this helps,

How to stop over heating laptops or computers.


1. Fix Internal Cooling. The first and most important thing you need to do when your laptop is overheatingis to clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
The most common cause of laptop overheating is a non-working fan. ... Viruses, spyware, adware and other types of malware put a heavy strain on the CPU and other components of your laptop. This causes those components to heat up, often to a point where the fan simply cannot move enough air over them to cool them down.
Determine Whether Your Computer Is Overheating or Just Hot. Laptops get hot. It's what they do. However, if your laptop is shutting down, suffering from the blue screen of *****, or experiencing serious slowdowns, then you have a much bigger problem on your hands.

Heat is a computer's enemy. Computers are designed with heat dispersion and ventilation in mind so they don't overheat. If too much heat builds up, your computermay become unstable, suddenly shut down, or even suffer component damage.

I have a Kenmore Elite model 110.63022100. My dryer runs for 30 seconds to 1 minute before completely powering off. There is a burn smell when it stops.


Usually when an electric dryer overheats and shuts down, it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat.

My Hoover runs for a few minutes and shuts off.


It's possible the thermal reset is defective. It shuts the motor off if it gets hot. Remove the bag door and take the bag off, remove both filters and then turn the vacuum on, just leave it sit there with the motor running. This eliminates the bag or filters causing any airflow resistance. If it still shuts off after a few minutes it's likely the thermal reset is bad. Some vacuums have an external thermal reset button which can be replaced if necessary but on your model it is built into the motor and you must replace the motor. If the motor runs fine put the bag and the filter under the bag back in - (make sure the filter is clean and not restricting airflow) put the bag cover on then turn it on again. If it overheats and shuts off then you may have a clog on there somewhere restricting the airflow. If so check the power nozzle area, the hose coming from the power nozzle, the extension hose and wands for clogs or restrictions.

suspect motor overheating and shutting down on thermal..if dryer does not have good air flow through vent to outside lint can accumilate around motor causing overheat and motor failure try cleaning around motor but i suspect it's too late damage has probably already been done
