3 Light red ring of joy!

So earlier today my console started displaying the 3 red lights of doom. Made sure everything was plugged in fine and it still didnt work so filled in the form onlien to send it off to be repaired. 

 

Thing is the bugger has now started working again. What I'm concerned about is it red ringing again. Do microsoft fix an original design flaw when they fix the red ring or do they simply replace the same part? Thing is I don't want my console to red ring again, but by the same token I cant send MS a working console as theyll think im a ****!

 

Any help or advice will be massively appreciated!

It depends on whether or not they send you back the original console. A lot of times they'll send back a refurbished console.

My console has 1 2 or 3 red lights.

If its still under the 3 year warranty a repair is free OP, sometimes they will repair your console sometimes you will be sent a refurb.
Personally I would send it in even if the RROD has gone for the time being.

You get an itemised sheet of what they've done when you get the console back. I'd also send it in, if it's red ringing then it's not long for this world.
