Hello. I got my xbox one for 1 week. When I installed the batteries in the controller and started to set up the console I found that the battery door was getting warm to the touch. I immediately opened the door and took put the batteries which were so hot by this time I couldn’t hold them, after the light on the controller would blink twice and then shut off.

I don't know how batteries work over there in Romania but you might have used unsuitable batteries. Sometimes there's batteries that will still fit but may have more power, thus, causing an overvoltage of some sort and overheating. If you used good, suitable batteries, then it could just be a defective unit. I would look and see if other people are reporting the same problem.

My controller is doing the same thing and it smells like something burning when I plugged a USB in (of course I immediately took it out). My Xbox one s controller is not even 2 months old!

The same thing has happened to me, so I searched up answers on Google, but couldn't find any. In my research, I saw your post but skipped it because it had no answer. Eventually, I got bored with my research and decided to solve my own problem. As I put the batteries in my controller, I saw a spark, and I thought, "They must be burning the little bit of dirt and dust on each other! That's what is making the heat, the burning smell, and the sparks!" So I wrapped one of the batteries in the finger of a rubber glove, since rubber stops electricity, and left the ends open. So the electrical circuit will still flow, but the batteries won't affect one another. After one battery was wrapped in rubber, I put them both in, and there were no sparks, no smells, no heat, and the controller worked like it was supposed to. Although you posted this question awhile ago, I hope that you still may have this problem, see this post, and solve your problem.
