There is a repeating error message in the console log that I cannot figure out is causing it.

Do you have any kind of software like iStat or anything that attempts to control the fans. It is application related but you may need to go through a process of eliminated to help narrow it down to the program that is causing the issue.

What programs do you have installed other then the base OSX applications?

this is definitely a hardware related control software i.e: SMC

what you can do is try resetting the SMC controller unit.  Use this link for info >>> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
