I have an Onkyo TX-SR805 and have noticed that the cooling fans are not running. Are they thermostaticaly controled?

Correct; as the fans are active when the unit reaches a specific temperature threshold. It should become active and begin to cool down the unit.

Do you know what that tempature is? The unit gets very hot, and I know that that is common for this model, but I would like to make sure they are working and get it serviced if necessary.

Our receivers do tend to run about 80 degrees above ambient room temperature, this is normal. If you install the apparatus in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or rack, ensure that there is adequate ventilation. Leave 20 cm (8") of free space at the top and sides and 10 cm (4") at the rear. The rear edge of the shelf or board above the apparatus shall be set 10 cm (4") away from the rear panel or wall, creating a flue-like gap for warm air to escape. Please make sure that when you turn off the main receiver that you also turn off the Zone 2 because if you don’t turn off Zone2 (if your receiver has this feature) then the receiver will continue to run and will produce heat. There is an internet dealer selling cooling fans that can be used with our receivers www.coolerguys.com.

So factor that the internal fans should thermally activate when the unit reaches approx 100 degress above ambient room temperature and regulate the internal temperature to an operational level of 80 degrees above ambient room temperature. If you have any more questions or concerns , Please contact our Product Support Dept for further assistance with this specific issue via our phone number and hours of operation (800-229-1687 24 hours a day). We would like to speak with you and work to troubleshoot and resolve your issue as prompt as possible.

Thank You;
