My L1 compact after about an hour or so gets distorted .  When I turn off for a couple hours it works fine.  This unit is probably 3 years old or so.  I don'y use much.  Suggestions on what part to replace.  Maybe amp or power supply over heating.  When it does it, it has sound, very low and distorted.  Thank you in advance for your help!

That's unusual for an L1 Compact. It sounds like it needs to be serviced.

Checking in: What's your input source? Are you using a guitar and microphone directly into the L1 Compact? If so, then the problem is in the L1 Compact power stand.

If you are using a mixer, I would check the mixer with headphones or another powered loudspeaker. You want to eliminate that as the source of the distortion.
