It might be possible using the Maintenance mode, however, AFAIK, there is no available procedure at the consumer level.

Someone suggested IR thermometer:

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

Keep in mind that the AVR will shut down in protection mode if the unit gets too hot (power light flashes red about every 2 seconds). To mitigate this from occurring, ensure there is at least 3-4" of clearance all around the AVR as well as considering a small PC fan to exhaust the heated air if in an enclosed cabinet.

Depending on what model you have, my Denon runs much cooler (feels like about 70-80F) when watching movies. At least they are not as 'hot' to the touch compared to some of my older H/K receivers. My 2310Ci runs relatively cool, and mounting a cooler fan wouldn't hurt, but requires regular maintenance to clean out the lint on the fan blades which is a real hassle.
