FRITZ!Powerline adapter heats up during use

It is normal for the FRITZ!Powerline adapter to heat up depending on the operating load. Therefore, choose a location where it is not subject to additional heat and good heat dissipation is assured:

  1. Do not expose the FRITZ!Powerline adapter to direct sunlight.
  2. Do not use the FRITZ!Powerline adapter directly next to devices that also produce heat.
  3. Make sure that the ventilation slits are unobstructed and provide adequate ventilation.
  4. Plug the FRITZ!Powerline adapter vertically into a wall outlet. Since the ventilation slits are located at the top and sides of the device, this guarantees optimum heat dissipation from the housing.
