Lenovo Z500 fan is not working

I have problems with fan. When I turn on my notebook fan start working after 5-10 minutes sometimes even not started and I can hear some weird sound like very fast clock ticking.  I tryed solve it with a lot of fan control programs but they didnt help me (they were working only for short time). Then I was reading some articles where people were talking about problems with win10 but I dont think It's my problem because I have win10 on this PC half year and problems started two weeks ago. I think problem is somwhere in new drivers but I didnt found out nothing on internet. Can someone help me solve this or give me tip where should I look problem for ? Thanks. (Sorry for my english, Im just started learning it)

Re: Lenovo Z500 fan is not working

Hi Hirachu and welcome to the community,

 

Have you ever cleaned the dirt out of the fan assembly?  Just blowing air in through the vent will only push more dirt into the fan.  You have to disassemble the machine to properly clean the dirt out.

 

Here's a video on disassembly if you want to take it on yourself.

Re: Lenovo Z500 fan is not working

Thanks for your advice topmathof, 

 

sadly, I did this a lot of times, last time 3 days ago and it didnt helped. I started to thinking, that fan is broken or some part of PC what working with it because he was working but rarely stoped, today, he is not working at all and that thicking is idicate, he wont working but he cant for some reason ( thats my opinion I dont know if right but I didnt found any onther clue on internet.) But thanks a lot for your tip.

With the noise that you say that it is making, then I am inclined to agree with you that the fan could need replacing.

 

Do you have the Z500 or the Z500 touch and to you have switchable graphics in your machine?

 

Regards,

Dave

Solution was much more easier than I realized. When I disassembled PC I noteced, that Fan was wrong connected in connector. All what I have to do was push it little bit more inside connector.
