What Makes Your Dell PA-3E Adapter Overheating?

Posted Aug 22 2013 7:47am

Have you noticed that your  Dell PA-3E adapter  that shipped with your laptop or a replacement that you bought on the Internet has been overheating of late? This flaw is common, judging by the number of complaints and negative reviews individuals post on the Internet. If left uncorrected a Dell PA-3E charger that has a tendency to overheat can have serious effects on the productivity of a laptop. For instance, when excess heat damages the mechanical components in the adapter’s transformer, the accessory loses its ability to regulate voltage and amperage. It can easily degrade or damaged the installed battery, or even damage the motherboard of your laptop computer permanently. Second, PA-3E adapters that overheat because of mechanical flaws spark occasionally. They can shock users, or shot circuit, causing electrical fires that put the lives of users and their families at risk. To repair a Dell adapter that is overheating, you must first identify the source of the problem, before you attempt the hyped remedies that are making the rounds online. This article highlights two major causes of overheating of laptops and their remedies.


Dell battery  can overheat for an array of reasons. First, if you leave your PA-3E adapter plugged in an electrical outlet for a long time, you retain a mist of electricity flowing in the charger. The mist of electricity generates heat that destabilizes essential components of the adapter, shortening its life as a result. To lower such effects, it is advisable that you unplug your Dell adapter from the electrical outlet once you have completed using your laptop computer. This way you not only save electricity by minimizing draught, but also keep your adapter cool and in excellent condition.


Did you know that the hardware profile of your laptop could have a toll on your  Dell PA-3E charger, and cause it to overheat? Picture the following scenario: your laptop has a lower that recommended level of RAM. You use the laptop to play games, or run other resource intensive applications, straining your CPU. When the central processing unit of a Dell laptop is working harder than it should, it attempts to draw more charge from the power source (in this case, the Dell PA-E3 charger), to execute many tasks at a go. This drives the adapter past its critical point, overheating it in the end. Optimize the hardware profile of your laptop lower such effect. Add RAM or upgrade the central processing unit if needed.


Dell contracts third-party companies to help in production of  Dell adapter, batteries, and other laptop components, to help satisfy the high demand for such accessories. Manufacturing flaws that lead to overheating accessories is thus common. To know whether your PA-3E adapter is a statistic or not, check the white label, usually at the back of its transformer, and note the model number of the adapter. This is a string of numbers and letter to differentiate it from other adapters. Next, visit the Dells official website and check whether they have recalled the group of PA-3E chargers. If this is the cases, simply package the Dell PA-3E charger and ship it to the retailer, to get a replacement accessory. If there is no indication Dell recalled the adapter model, chances are that your equipment is old, or has accrued mechanical damages. Buy a replacement from a good store, to restore normal performance.
