I do have the slim one. I found a place that does Xbox repair. He said it is rare for the fan to go out on an S model, that it is probably just really dirty. I just talked to him and he said they cleaned it and have had it running for over 4 hours and it hasn't shut off yet. He said they will keep it running for another couple hours and I can pick it up after work. Only $20, so not bad at all.

That's for the Xbox 360 S model. I'm sure they have a guide for the older Xbox 360 model also.
At least this gives you a ballpark of how to fix it and how much it cost for a replacement fan. I think you can find the parts on Amazon also.

My Xbox 360is overheating and freezing up. I am assuming the fan is bad. How hard is that for me to fix/replace on my own?

Try ifixit.com. They have manuals for fixing tons of things. I know they have a few for the xbox, but Idk about the tray.

Chris has a point about it being similar to a PC. You may want to run it by a local PC repair shop and see if they can give you a quote to fix it. Otherwise, call Microsoft up and see what they can do for you. They'll either see it as incredibly sad or funny; either way, hopefully they'll help you out.

House Insurance? Does that cover it? Also What about Accidental Damage when you buy it? Did you use credit card - I think that they often include damage clauses on purchases.

If you can't get it repaired or replaced then I would suggest to do it your self? After all the thing is effectively written off and probably you have nothing to loose? The Xbox is really just a PC and uses PC components so I wouldn't be suprised if you couldn't just drop in a replacement?

I'd be cautious with the flattened tray to make sure no sharp points of plastic are aimed at the underside of the disk. Once the disk starts spinning it may scratch and then you'll have an xbox and game to contend with. :(

I don't know whether to sympathize or laugh; I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't, but I've never heard of that one before. Is that the same dog in your profile picture? If so, he looks so innocent. I can just picture it though: the tray pops open, surprises him, and then he attacks the tray.

The best bet is to see if you can manually flatten the tray and get it to work again. Something tells me the warranty doesn't cover that, but Microsoft might get a laugh out of it and may help you out.
