Do you mean the leafmons are getting hot?   If so - that's to be expected.  They can reach 65C (149F).
You can control how hot they get in a few ways....
1) You can set the Bypass Temp Limit and/or Bypass Current Limit on the Hardware -> Cellmon page (lower left corner).  I restrict mine to 1a and 55C - mainly to extend their life.  Others on this forum have their own ideas on this and may chime in. Smile



2) and/or use fans to keep them cool if your setup would allow this.   I use WM4 + Expansion and it has 'fan' control - to turn fans on/off based on temp to keep the batteries (and mons) cool.   I don't use it - but its a nifty advanced feature. 

You should set things up so you're not worried about running balancing...  and of course be aware that they will get hot - its what they do as they burn excess power off from a cell Smile

FYI  - Here's a auto-level balance youtube using Batrium by @Daromer - https://youtu.be/qNNffhusbXQ   Auto-level is different than bypass in that you can run it all day as you use the system - doesn't depend on the cells being 'at the top'.  This is what I use mostly when I want to do a touch-up so the system can continue to operate. 

FYI  #2 - here's the PDF on mons from Batrium website - https://s3.amazonaws.com/helpscout.net/d...er-2.0.pdf
On page 5 - Operations section - its says the that mons will auto-shutdown if temp exceeds 75C (so they can get to 70s..  which is quite hot!).    I read somewhere else that for long life, the temp should stay more in the 50'ish C range as a max - which is why I have mine set to 55C - but can't find it right now.
