OSX Console Error Message

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

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

which may solve the problem

otherwise here is another solution you can try >>> https://discussions.apple.com/message/20443549#20443549

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 link suggests it is caused by third party fan control software:
