FRITZ!Box or power adapter gets noticeably warm

It is normal for the FRITZ!Box to heat up in relation to the load. Therefore, select a location for the FRITZ!Box where it is not exposed to additional heat and any heat produced can be drawn off:

  1. Make sure that the ventilation slots are not covered. Do not place the FRITZ!Box on a carpet or on upholstered furniture.
  2. Do not expose the FRITZ!Box or its power adapter to direct sunlight.
  3. Do not place the FRITZ!Box inside a closed cabinet or casing.
  4. Do not place the FRITZ!Box directly next to devices that also produce heat.
  5. Do not place the FRITZ!Box on heat-sensitive surfaces.
