Armor G1 getting hot and rebooting

Options
I have a new Armor G1 since a week. It gets very hot - I mean really very hot ! - and it reboots at least once a day. Sometimes it just gets hang up with the LED-stripe on the front getting red and I hace to pull the power to get it to restart.
I can´t see that this should be a normal behaviour, are anyone else having the same problem? Should it really get so hot?

    I'd ask from the supplier some info. Maybe you can have a replacement unit.
    Unfortunately "very hot" is not measureable for me. I worked on switches that went close to 55°C and everything was allright, other routers over 35°C were slower than a drunk slug, and only after a PII heatsink applied changed gear to "normal" (really janky setup).

    Hi @Ingemar

    Please place Armor in a ventilated where the place the temperature would not easily get so high.
    You can check when there is no device put under Armor G1, will the Armor G1 device temperature still gets very hot?

    It is placed on the wall with good ventilation. I have tried to turn it upside-down to redirect the airstream through the unit.
    I will go back to the shop where I bought it to get it returned/swapped to a new unit!
    It just can´t be right with a new unit rebooting once or twice everyday, and a consumer product that doesn´t work in a normal living surrounding.

    It doesn´t help, I have tried but the unit keeps rebooting once or twice every day. I will return it to the shop where I bought it!
