Having used a 942 for a year now, I’ve noticed that the cooling fan on the bottom of the unit frequently speeds up when recording or playing a program and sometimes does this in standby mode. I do understand that this is normal. However, for the past couple of days the cooling fan continuously runs at high speed, even in standby. The 942 is not enclosed in a cabinet. Doing a search for info on the 942’s cooling fan on this forum, I found several threads that mentioned overheating conditions. In a thread started by Gutter back on May 25, 2005, he put ¼” spacers under the feet of the 942 to aid cooling. (He had an overtemp warning of 147 degrees.) I took Gutter’s idea and put 1” thick rubber spacers under the feet on my unit. The temperature drop of the 942’s housing was VERY significant! The heat given off from the vents on the left side was greatly reduced and the exhaust fan on the bottom almost feels like it’s now blowing cold air. However, the cooling fan is still continuously running at high speed (in standby) and is quite audible from our normal seating location in our HT. Will check the internal temperature when I fire the unit up tonight. Otherwise, my 942 works GREAT! Thanks to all the contributors on this excellent forum!
