"Myths and Misconceptions"

"If the drive has stiction, use the (non) patented stiction spin, described above in. If the circuit board has a hot spot, it may be able to be kept cool with a fan, or occasional application of canned freeze spray (really), or by holding canned air upside down and spraying. It's very cold, so don't spray your skin! One of the weaknesses of using freeze mist is that a) the abrupt intense cooling can damage an electrical component, and b) your can of cold stuff will run out in a minute or so. If blowing cool air with a fan will not keep the drive cool enough, there's something seriously wrong and you probably need to send the drive in for recovery..."
