JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: PS3
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Hi Josh, he has done the self cleaning with a micro fiber cloth very gently and by using my sewing machine can of air for the inside - again gently. The freezing only happened twice yesterday but he finally shut it off when the second freeze never changed.
