Red hot EDP questions

Dear All,

having had my Echoplex for about two months I have a few comments
and questions:
Firstly, thanks to all who designed this wonderful box of tricks.
Secondly, I find that after a couple of hours of insane, dreamy
ambience the thing is so hot that strange and annoying things happen.
(I should mention that I'm running on UK voltage, 230V)
Most worrying the mains plug frequently gets so warm the plastic
softens and it looses contact momentarily, naturally resetting the
EDP and loosing my prize loop. I have tried this with half a dozen
diffent leads with the same result. 
Less worrying - strange things start to happen to the control functions.
Foremost amonst these is that <OVERDUB> starts acting like <MULTIPLY>,
this can produce some intersting results but is still annoying.
Is this a result of the input voltage? 
I guess my only option is to fit a fan in the rack case.

Still, I wouldn't change my EDP for all the other processing boxes
on the market.
