Firstly if you get the 3 red lights then Microsoft repair your console for free so long as you purchased it no more than 3 years before you send it back for repair. The 3 red lights are a sign of overheating, and to go into more detail this is what happens:

The 360 had a manufacturing fault or air vents were covered and so the 360 overheated, and got so hot that the solder balls on the cpu or gpu chip melted, and due to the fact the the 360 motherboard is able to flex a little, when the 360 was turned off and cooled down these solder balls solidified again, however they solidified in the wrong place or in two half's etc. and so the 360 shows the 3 red lights to indicate this fault.

Rheem heat pump,have to keep pushing red reset button for fan


Either the fan motor is going out OR the compressor may need a boost of power from a quick start.

When the compressor gets old, sometimes it requires a little extra power to get it going.

Your unit should be under work warranty if they installed it.

press No.2 and keep depressed. {The Red LED light will flash

5. Now release both the buttons – {the two LED lights should
come back on}
6. Get the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit and stand two metres away
from the SCR unit with the Digistat+2RF/+3RF unit in your hand.
7. Remove the battery cover and fit the batteries.

This set has a modification that needs to be done. It will also start turning on by itself and changing channels rapidly. It's two weeks old. Take it back to the Retailer or if that is not an option contact LG at 1-800-243-0000 to get a local servicer in your area.
