    The heating issues may be caused due to the following reasons...

    ===>If the processor fan is not working properly or if the head sling paste is not applied in the processor or it may be dried......

    ====>if your mac has warranty give your mac to your serive center to replace the fan or check other hardware related issues.....

    Hello Friend..

    I think the battery you are using is not capable enough to give long battery back-up.
    Due to this, your Mac get heated up because you charge the battery continuously but it drains quickly.
    If you use the MacBook in this way, then very soon, the Mac definitely blast,
    Also check that whether the fan is working or not, if not take your Mac to the service center.

    Kindly replace the battery from Apple Outlet.
    As you device is in warranty period, then you can change the battery free of cost.

    Thank you..

    Dear Friend..

    There might be several issue regarding this.
    It can be:-

    1. Battery failure
    2. Blockage of air filter spaces
    3. Damage of heat throwing Fan.

    Among these 3 issue, you have these solutions:-

    1. I think you check your battery first that whether it is worked fine because sometimes, then battery also gets leaked before its actual time, if there is some liquid leakage from the battery, it means the battery gets expired and if you haven't remove now, then do it now because it will damage your Mac charging particles.
    Purchase the new battery from the Authorized Apple Center.

    2. If the battery is OK, then you need clear dust from the air pass space of your Mac which gets covered or blocked due to dust. With the help of a soft brush, open all the air filter.

    3. If both the options are OK, then you need to check your Mac processor fan first,
    You just revert your Mac and see that the fan is running or not. If not, then it must be taken care with the help of your Apple Center.

    Hope all these possible suggestions help you..
    Thank you..

    hai friend .....................
    for reducing the heat use the coolpad and for the battery life change the brightness settings and the power plan mode
    it is better to use energy saver mode with low brightness

    Hello Dear Friend ...

    How about you ????

    Generally the Macbook air has ONE FAN inside it

    The FANS job is to Keep the Macbook air's chips from overheating

    It id done by Pushing Hot air out the Exhaust port

    The exhaust port is behind the Keyword , at the Screen Hinge

    When you run many APPS then it will get heated

    Even when you play the Games , Playing or Editing the video ... you will get the problems like this


    So you need to cleat them first




    ALL THE VERY BEST

    Hi,

    Yeah! I have got your problem and i have solution for it.

    1.This was the problem because of the heavy usage.

    2.As macbook was a small device.

    3.The battery will be packed inside it so it will get heated up soonly.

    4.To make it cool you should also maintain the surroundings temperature cool.

    5.And you stop using it for a long time at a time.

    6.And also playing high graphic games.

    Have a nice day........

    HELLO SIR,

    SEE THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS::::>>



    ALSO SEE THE VIDEO::::>>>



    I THINK THAT YOU ARE USING A TOO OLD BATTERY IN TO YOUR DEVICE.
    SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU IS THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE TO REPLACE YOUR CURRENT BATTERY WITH A NEW ONE SO THAT OVERHEATING MAY BE AVOIDED.

    ALSO YOU SHOULD HAVE TO KEEP TURN OFF ALL THE APPS WHEN YOU ARE NOT USING THEM.
    IT WILL HELPS YOU IN SAVING THE BATTERY JUICE.
    ALSO MAINTAIN THE PROPER BRIGHTNESS AND BACK LIGHT IN YOUR MAC DEVICE.

    THAT'S ALL.

    Hello dear.......

    This is not a common problem.
    You had already told that it was bought newly. So, contact service center and explain the problem...
    Sometimes virus and bugs also create these type of problem. So, install efficient antivirus and clean the PC.
    To get good battery life....
    --Unplug the charger after fullcharge.
    --Plug in the battery after fullydischarge and ask to connect it.
    --Use good antivirus and clean PC.
    --Close the background apps and reduce the load.
    --Use cooling fan avoid overheating effect.
    --Don't use continously for more than 6hrs, and if so give a break for 20 mins in sleepmode.

    Hope you may understand....

    Well friend heating issue is because your processor fan is not working properly.when you use so many applications at a time then heating occurs and the fan comes into the picture,but when it does not work properly then causes problem to the system.so i will suggest you to check your fan and if there is any problem ,then replace that.
    For the long life of your battery always remember these points
    <>first of all do not run so many applications at a time.
    <>after using functions like wifi,3g turn them off.
    <>do not use the device when it is in charging mode.
    Thank you

    You should take certain precautions and actions to solve this problem.

    *Make sure you do not run many heavy apps simultaneously at the same time.

    *Use cooling pads when playing games of high graphics.

    *Make sure the ventilation is not blocked and the Macbook is kept on hard surface rather than curved surfaces like beds,etc.

    *Check whether the fan inside is working properly or not.

    *Avoid very long hours of continuous usage of the Macbook.

    *Charge and allow the battery to discharge and then only charge.

    *While charging,do not run heavy apps.
