I sent in my Switch to Nintendo in regards to erratic joy-con connections and battery issues - I got told my Switch had cracks near the vent ports and that they could swap out the console for AUS$95... which would fix all the problems. I said yes but it’s funny they didn’t mention any of my other issues. So I guess my old Switch did have cracks on it.

My switch was bending a little bit, but I took it apart, put ICgraphite pads on both sides of the copper heat sink, tightened the screws a bit, and that solved my issue. Never had any issues with cracking, but I imagine it's because the plastic is constantly expanding and contracting. It causes a lot of stress on the thinner areas... Not sure why some do but others don't. It could also be that if someone drops it once , it can cause micro cracks that get bigger over time.

The Cracking issue is simple. Explanation: People play their Nintendo switch consoles All day (and in most cases all night) and then they leave it sit dormant and what happens is while playing games on your console the console rapidly heats up then when left dormant rapidly cools down causing the plastic to Expand and contract which leads to the plastic getting weaker over time and ultimately leads to the plastic being so weak that it starts cracking. A simple fix would be to play for shorter periods of time. Thanks! have a good day! 😊👍

I had cracks I have a day one model and it was so brittle on the back after couple months it was crack bits at a time. I just replaced the back myself with and the back plates now being used on he switch look and feel different. The day one version had a gloss too it vs the now more matte finish . It’s an easy fix if anyone is having cracks just by the proper tools and take time to watch videos on how to repair n replace

Mine has the same cracks in the vent area. In that area there are four little arm like pieces, one has completely broke off and the others all are cracked. Mine has never been in the dock, I only use it in hand held mode. And I baby it, so I know it’s nothing I’ve done. I think as time goes on all of them will have this problem from the heat. I’m calling Nintendo tomorrow to see if they will fix it, this is ridiculous

My crack is at the bottom and I didn't drop my switch it's just a little crack thou
I predominately use docked mode on my Switch at my house haven’t noticed any cracks on it and I’ve been playing it in Handheld and Tabletop mode on 9 day long road trip with my dad and still haven’t noticed any cracks then again I’ve never got my Switch super hot. Only slightly hot. The only noticeable damage I have is my Blue Joycon on my left side of my Switch it slides off when I touch it from the side and the bottom meaning I might have a bent slide track for the blue Joycon on the left side of my Switch console. Still works perfectly fine tho.
partyprash (3 months ago)
my first switch had the problem cracking by the power button and the back shell, i traded it in for a new one, and i immediately loosened my screws one turn each, and it's perfectly fine.

Wouldn’t it be kinda funny if someone cracked their Switch while they were checking. I can totally see my friend possibly doing that by accident, mostly because he has somewhat poor motor skills due to his condition. He’s still a great friend, though. 😄

Funny how a Nintendo Switch ad played before this video. I guess we’ll start this video on a positive note.
George Emery (3 months ago)
I have a day 1 switch that developed cracks all around the vents and the usb-c port about 8 months in, but it's really just cosmetic, so I didn't worry about it. I called nintendo last month, (June 2017) for a joycon issue, and they offered an out-of-warranty repair for the joycon and case replacement for $99 USD.
Jaxon Martarano (3 months ago)
My switch doesn't have any cracks, but every once in a while when I'm playing handheld my joycons keep disconnecting. Any solutions?

Thursday_Irvin (3 months ago)
Sometimes when my joycons are connected to the switch, the screen will appear saying that they aren't connected. Any ideas to fix?

Gizmo34 (3 months ago)
my switch I got on Christmas and oh god it's been horrible My little brother does not take care of it whatsoever He throws it when he gets made The joycons disconnect in the middle of the game the joycons also don't lock anymore thought I had cracks on the back turned out it was just a line from a pencil so I just erased it dead pixel on the screen which is distracting Brother broke the L button for playing to much Fortnite This is why I'm gonna try and get me my own switch so I don't have a family trying to break it

The joystick for my left joy con is struggling. Every time I turn it down, it is unresponsive unless I press it harder and my plastic joycons are a little loose but those are the only problem I'm having with it. I am really sorry to those of you who have cracks
Neko Seikatsu (3 months ago)
Isaac Rumley yea theres kits online for like 10 bucks but apparently if I do replace the little latches the warranty on the console goes away. Not entirely sure tho
Isaac Rumley (3 months ago)
Neko Seikatsu yea mine's not that bad it still stays on but apparently you can replace the thing that hold the joy cons on the console from plastic to metal and it stays secure
Neko Seikatsu (3 months ago)
Isaac Rumley the lock that keeps the joy cons on the switch itself is broken for my right one. So it slides off without pressing the button, but with some force so it doesnt fall off by accident. Besides that mines not cracked at all

Nintendo was sent replacement shells in February, it's not heat that cracks it, nintendo should fix for free
Nin10Dork -Caleb (4 months ago)
Nintendo reps aren't allowed to publicly state the reason why the switch cracks, however after testing the issue they discovered that it's not due to the heat,the replacement shells have different paint for the switch logo and in some cases are actually a tad to large so the cart flap doesn't sit well
Nick Cheamo (4 months ago)
I think it does happen because of the heat because the same happened to me in the summer (I live in Australia) I didn’t think about that

My joy cons are loose, and I do have cracks on the cooling area. My switch is not bent tho.
steverman 5555 (4 months ago)
I don’t have any cracks.. however I think that’s because my switch has decals on it and the decals are holding the plastic together

My left joy con is so loose that you can take it off from the switch with your hand.
Manu45678 ! (4 months ago)
Luckily mine isn’t cracked, although I do have a loose Joycon. It’s probably because of me living outside of the U.S.
Lucio Main (4 months ago)
I haven't found any cracks, however I feel like the plastic covering the vent is really weak. i'm surprised mine hasn't cracked, despite dropping from 30cm onto an office chair leg, making the right joy con able to be pulled off the track without pressing the button. :|

jonathan salandino (4 months ago)
This never happend to me i have a switch but since i dont use it all the time thats probably the reason why i dont have any cracks edit and i dont actually properly take care of my switch on the back of it it has scratches a lot of them are by me the others by scratching it on the wall
DA PEPO (4 months ago)
Mine isn’t cuz I don’t really use it for very extended periods of time or maybe it’s cuz people don’t put covers on it and put it I. Backpacks without any sort of protection
Russell Kyle (4 months ago)
Could this be from the twisting that is sometimes required to remove the switch from some 3rd party cases?
like bot lmao xd (4 months ago)
The switch has so many problems. It gets scratches on it the first time you ever even touch it. Drifting analog sticks, loose joycons too. Just one more thing to add to my list: CRACKS

Don't blame nintendo it's simply people don't care for there switch mines perfect and I always use doc mode
SpikySpikes (4 months ago)
bought mine on release day and it doesnt have a single crack
AlcoholicGam3r (4 months ago)
In my case it was the screws being too tight on my Console, cracked on the top right hand corner sitting in my case for a month. It was still under warranty and I got it repaired for free. The Nintendo repair center didn't charge me for accidental damage so it must be a very common thing.

Fedorable _556 (4 months ago)
No, and while the problem seems to affect less than 20 percent of switch owners or at least according to polls I've seen, mine is still pretty new

ExoticKeko (4 months ago)
On my minus remotes and possible just my switch when I pull up on the stick it will sometimes do this thing where it will just forever go up when I let go of the stick and it’s annoying in some games (Imagine scoping with a gun or pulling up the map in fortnite and then falling off a ledge cause of it)
