    It's burning!

    So last time I was downloading a VC game, I noticed my Wii was getting pretty
    hot to the point where I had to stop and unplug it (and waste 1000 Wii Points).
    It only happens when I'm using Connect24. Does this happen to a lot of you?
    I doubt this, but is it true that cooling fans can damage your Wii?

    Cooling fans help your Wii by cooling them down. Your Wii shouldn't overheat though if your getting these problems buy this Cooler, If that doesn't work tell nintendo about your problem xD

    Yeah, I've had mine since launch and this hasn't happened since recently so I'm worried
    it's breaking or something. Maybe I should bother Nintendo to give me a new
    one...

    Make sure there is air flow around your wii. If it's tucked in a corner where it's not getting enough cool air it might overheat. Keep the area around it clear so it can get air. Other than that I'd say just let what happens happen, if it overheats I'm sure nintendo would take care of it.

    and how long does it take to download a VC game for you... i dont think it would take long enough to even get hot... takes like 30 seconds to a minute for any game to download so far on mine... call nintendo they will replace it for free no questions asked..lol my connect 24 has been on sence the day i bought my wii... not even warm...

    Make sure you use the little plastic tray stand they give you with your Wii. I did not know what it was till I did some research.

    I had the opposite problem. I couldn't use my Wii unless Wii Connect 24 was turned on. My house is very cold (55 deg) and with Wii Connect 24 off the Wii was so cold that it would skip on movie files, take a long time to load, and give me disc read errors. Once I turned Wii Connect 24 back on about eight weeks ago I have not had any trouble. My conclusion is that the Wii likes to be warm.
