Just picked up an xbox one s. So small compared to the original! But... it seems to have a constant loud buzz. Is this normal? Does anyone else have it?

I've read it's the fan and you can feel the fan if you put your hand above it. I'd understand if it had been on for hours but it does it straight after turning on!

Our S sounds like this. A slight buzz most of the time and the sound of a mouse squeaking the rest of the time.

I have an X - it’s silent.

Brother in law has an S and it’s very quiet. Odd that your fan is buzzing. If it’s still under warranty maybe contact Microsoft and see if they can perhaps service it? I would.

Bloody annoying. There are a lot of people that put up with it, and I really cant be bothered to send it back but may have to.

Sounds exactly like this:

That is pretty bad. I though the clicking and squeaking was bad from our S, nothing compared to that. Our X on the other hand is virtually silent.

So....... I come down stairs the other morning, thought I'd stick the xbox on before the kids got up and was confronted by this.... Dangerous? Lucky it didn't cause a fire?

Never ever seen that before!!

Old batteries? (it doesn’t look old).

Any previous damage to the controller? Have the batteries been knocked? Did anyone spill water on it? Was it in direct sunlight?

Brand new batteries. Has taken a good old beating over the years I expect, Curtains were closed and overnight so not direct sunlight, Also no marks around where it was so doesn't look like it was a sudden heat thing. I would guess more of a constant hot that just melted it.

All very strange.

Might drop Microsoft an email see what they say.
Funny thing is there doesn't seem to be any marking on the circuit board to suggest burning of any type.

Didn’t realise 3v could cause so much damage.

Could the controller have been dropped causing the batteries to fall out, and then put back in the wrong way shorting it out?

I’m pretty sure in their wisdom they had you putting both batteries in the same way unlike anything else with batteries where they are the opposite polarities so that may be the cause of problem.

just on to xbox now to see if they have any other reports of spontaneous controller combustion.

I've informed them that my partner has currently made me move all Microsoft designed products outside as she is worried of fire risk. Originally I put them in the rabbit hutch to keep them dry but she has got wind of this and said that I can not put the rabbits life in danger like that.

Not surprised tbh. They’ll be wanting to check that controller to try and determine what happened I’d imagine.
I understand that, I've give them everything I have. It happened a few weeks ago and I just contacted them out of curiosity really. Would like to know what their findings are. I can see no burn marks on the controller at all, just melting, would look like a heat inside probably from the batteries.
