Seat Coolers Throwing Out Heat

I was driving my wife's 550 yesterday and turned on the seat cooler on high and after a few minutes I noticed that the top area under the headrest was pretty hot. I looked to see if by chance I had turned on the seat heater, but no, it was the seat cooler. I turned it off, and proceeded to dinner, when we drove back home I tried the cooler again. Again it started getting hot again.

Is the fan motor heating up or is there a circuit cross somewhere that causes the upper portion of the seat to heat up?

Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Negative. Mine have worked flawlessly, take it in to the dealer ASAP. It's summer you need that feature!
