I had my DF 700 repaired recently and now I’m probably overly sensitive to it’s operation, but it does seem to running hotter than I remember prior to the repair.  is this common?

Both of my domino machines run pretty hot.  Been wondering about it myself

Here are two relevant and worthwhile conversations on this topic here on the FOG, found with a quick google search:

It may be a calibration issue during the repair? Definitely worth reaching out to Festool, if they were the ones who provided the repair service.
