I have a rrod jtag that i have reflowed in the oven twice. But i stuck it in the fridge 1 minute after baking it for half an hour. This caused the oven trick not to be as effective thus causing another rrod followed by another one after i used the same trick. Both times the trick gave me a good 12 hours of life before a RROD.

The problem is that I live in the UK with a GAS heater with gas marks for the temperature of the board and cannot remember for the life of me which one i used.

So my questions are:

1)What gas mark should I use to reflow the solder joints via a GAS OVEN?
2)For how long should I keep it in there?

Thank you,

Don't. You're just going to make things a whole lot worse.

Read the logic behind the oven trick. It works, its the best free way to fix your xbox. Mind you there are a lot of risks and you have to insulate the xbox pretty well. Try it, it melts the solder under the GPU and CPU and when it cools it reballs so the cracks in them (due to the lead free solder) dissapear. Also the motherboard bending thingy gets straightened too as well as the moisture getting removed.

Im just going to settle with:

Pre heat to gas mark 5 for 15 minutes then put xbox in for 10 minutes on mark 7 then let it cool for 1 to 2 hours

You are better off sticking it on a twig and roasting it over an open fire.
