Extremely loud Fan noise on brand new Yoga 3 Pro Laptop - Please Resolve ASAP

2016-02-27, 7:19 AM

Hi, 

2 months ago i bought a Yoga 3 Pro  i7 laptop and in the last 2 weeks it started making an unbearable constant noise which sounds like a chip fryer. it is clearly coming from the fan located on the upper right hand side of the unit. it simply does not stop running and its unbearable. given what i paid for this machine i am on the point of returning it.

Can someone help with a fix for this issue? Lenovo i called tech support and no resolution was made thus far.

Hello Pierre, welcome to the forums.

 

It does sound like a possible mechanical problem. If you bought the Yoga 3 Pro 2 months ago, then it should still be under warranty, so your best course of action would probably be to send it to a Lenovo Service Center and get it checked out under the warranty.

Fan noise on a Y3P is strange as there is a very small fan and at least with my machine?  It's nearly inaudible.  OTH, you mentioned a i7 and the Y3P comes with a Core M.   Are you sure you don't have a Yoga 3 14  or 3 11?  There are threads here about fan noise with those models.  If you are hearing the fan on a Y3P?  Either there's a physical issue with the fan or possibly a thermal issue that keeps the fan on full tilt.
