My console has 1, 2 or 3 red lights sticky.

This should not keep happening every 15 minutes OP, If no one has any other suggestions it seems like your console may well need a service.
You can set that up by phoning support for your region or on this website.

The thermal paste might be going bad or the cpu chip heatsink might be loose. Either way it needs service and doing it yourself is very difficult, so the best thing is to have MS fix it.
