[color=rgb(20,20,20);font-family:'Titillium Web', sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:rgb(252,252,252);]I got my Yamaha YHT196 installed at home yesterday. I played it for 2 hours and when i checked the receiver it got heated incredibly and looked like about to fire. Then I checked the manual, it was mentioned that there should some space around the receiver for the ventilation, so that receiver wouldn't get heat. Now in my home, I placed the receiver in a rack that's in my tv stand. There isn't much space around the receiver, hardly 2 or 3 centimeters. [/color]

[color=rgb(20,20,20);font-family:'Titillium Web', sans-serif;font-size:16px;background-color:rgb(252,252,252);]Now my questions are, do i need take out the receiver and place it outside with the enough ventilation? Is that the space issue got my receiver heated heavily? Do you people ever faced this issue? And whats the ideal place to have my receiver at? Is there any fan kinda thing inside the receiver to cool it? Am so scared now.[/color]

Amps definitely generate a lot of heat and small spaces spaces can definitely cause problems.  Soemtimes you get lucky and sometimes you don't.  Usually, the space above the unit is more of a factor than the sides.  If you have an inch or two above the unit, you might turn the tide with a fan, maybe something like this:




If you don't have clearance on top, then you definitely have to pull it out.
