HX Stomp is overheating. I'm worried about it.

Recommended Posts

So first of all sry for bad English. 
I have seen that people write about overheating and I saw FAQ where is said it is normal.

Anyway I'm really, REALLY worried of overheating because when I use 5-6 blocks, it gets really hot. Not THAT hot, but it feels like charger from PC. You know, that little block or what is it. I think my HX Stomp overheating more that normal. Or I'm just overthinking it... idk.
I was thinking about playing at direct sunlight outdoors and with warm floor in the rehearsal. This even worse. If it warm, then it can get too hot. What then? My device will cooked like an egg? 

I saw people said they turned it on for days and had problems.
What if I wanna use it as sound card for all day long?

I bought it from a friend that win this on Ebay. So I don't have any warranty and all that kind of support stuff. So if my device will broke I can't do anything.

They run warm. If it's as warm as a PSU for a computer, that's OK. Does it burn your finger to touch it? THAT would be a problem!

My Stomp is on 24/7. It doesn't get any hotter even if I'm playing constantly for extended periods.

Any electronic device left out in the sun is in danger.

If it really concerns you despite all of that, you could always get one of those little laptop cooler pads with fans, but unless it actually burns your finger or the magic smoke is escaping, you're probably over-thinking it..

Line 6 clearly knew some people would worry it's a problem because right in their instructions they point out that the little MOFO WILL get hot.

 

Don't worry about it though.

With Thanksgiving only a day away and our oven on the blink we have been trying to roast a small turkey on top of the HX Stomp for the last two days. So far no luck. Very disappointing. Happy Holidays!
