The radio has been to Icom three (3) time for the exact same problem; I have accrued in excess of $500 in repair to have the same malady occur for the now four times.

Bill,

Stop putting down the IC 7000.
Any piece of electrical equipment will fail on occasions. 

My 706 MK II G has never had any issues and runs MUCH cooler.<<<
I must inform you that the IC 706 MK11G, IC 756 PRO3 and the IC 7000 all runs within 1 to 2 degree of each other. 

I always use an external fan with mine. <<<
As per your own words, " I always use an external fan with mine." then the Radio should not have a heat related problem.
I can understand that you are and have every reason to be dismayed. But, until you know for sure what caused the failure, quit looking for an excuse to  blame the Radio.
Have you RULED Out your Power Supply?

While operating phone SSB my 7000 started drawing extremely high current levels
(30 Amps plus) at 14.0 VDC then total RF output failu
