Roku Express 3941 RW Device Overheating and freezing

I have 2 Roku Express  3941 RW that over a period of 2-3 weeks end up overheating and then freezing up all together.  Unpug the units and cool down for a bit and then start a new cycle.  This has been happening since new for about 4 months.

Only watch the TV for a couple hours a day.

Any fixes for the overheating or maybe a Warranty issue?

Hello @@Allsams

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community!

Roku devices tend to go warm since it's always plugged in. We would recommend taking a look at our Support page for more information regarding this issue: What to do if the red light is on or you see a “Your device is overheating” message

Re: Roku Express 3941 RW Device Overheating and freezing

Thank you for getting back to me.  I looked at all the suggestions and nothing is applicable to me.

As earlier indicated, the unit heats up and then freezes and must be unplugged from the wall and cooled down before it works again.

The most defective unit SN SOAH425EHA71.  The other unit functions for around 2 months before it needs to be unplugged and cooled down.

Once I get a correction for this unit will work on my other unit the same way.
