Xbox One producing weird oily liquid?

If I could post a picture I would. My xbox one is leaking out some kind of oil out of the vent, and there is these white milk like stains in the center of the vents. And by milk like, i mean if you leave a glass without rinsing it off after you drank milk and it drys on. But yeah it isnt causing any problem yet but i wanna figure what it is, and maybe get it fixed, before my warrenty runs out. I havent set anything on the xbox besides the controller, the mic, or a game case so i doubt there is anything in vent besides a bit of dust. Anyone getting this or have any advice?

When I got my Day One edition, mine had this too. Eventually it just kind of dried up and went on its way.

Upload them to my tumblr, the oil seems to have dried up but I haven't played in a few days, it only happen when I play for a few hours.

in the center you can see the milk like stains and the off to the side you see some of the oily stuff that hasn't dried.

How exactly does a liquid "leak" vertically?   I'm calling BS on this, since the pics you provided are unnecessarily tiny, and show little detail.   You either spilled something on it, or your home/apt. is incredibly humid, and it's condensation from the heat being generated at the vents.

The stain is right above the huge Xbox One exhaust fan. It's not really that far-fetched to say that if there is any "leaking",  the fan could've very well have blown it upwards, and therefore also stained the vent.

And stop attacking people who might have genuine issues. This is not the NG4/fanboy world. This is a forum for actual Xbox owners having issues.

I could take better ones, its night time, I'll do it in the morning. I've contacted microsoft about getting it repair and I will be sending out later this week, and Aye Karamba, I joined you site and tried to talk to the people on the site commenting on the article, to try and confront all the people saying this is fake and a troll or whatever, and basically got banned for trying to post my side of the story. Wrote out a paragraph or so of text explaining my situation but it said it was spam every time I tried to edit it and post it, Anyway is there a way you could add in what I was as a quote from me or something.
