So I've had this Verizon DVR STB for almost 4 years now. And for the past 2 days, the fan started running non-stop at its fastest and loudest rpm and it is running 24x7.
There's nothing blocking the DVR and nothing has changed about it as such.
All of a sudden the fan has kicked into high gear and has been doing that constantly. What is the solution to this? Do I need a replacement STB now?

My DVR also started running (sounds like the fan) all the time. I saw other posts that said changing the LED display on the box could help. I did that and it did help me (for now). You might try the following:
Using your Remote Control, go to Menu, Settings, System, Set Top box, LED Brightness, and change the setting to Low.
Hope this helps.

But as others have said, it is only a matter of time before the box fails.
Fan speeds up as temp increases.
Couldn't hurt to make sure all the vents are clear.
