[Legion Y530] Weird clicking noise from a fan

2018-12-30, 23:32 PM

Hello everyone,

 

I just bought a brand new Legion Y530 (like three days ago) from the official website and I realized that when the fans are spinning, there is a clicking noise coming from the right fan. It's even louder when i m tilting the bottom of the laptop or when the fans are spinning slowly.

I just contacted the support but there was no "fan" section so I just posted it under the "Plastic problem" section. Do you guys have any idea how I could solve this issue? Because I'm pretty sure this problem will require a send back and I really don't have the time to wait for a month for my laptop to come back (and I'm pretty sure they won't send me a new fan so I really need your help).

 

I wanted to show you a record of this noise but I can not upload a file on this page so I used SoundCloud instead :p

Here is the link : https://soundcloud.com/artege/sound_problem_y530/

 

Thank you, C.T.

There's no track in the link you posted. Anyway, you should open up the back panel and see if there's any physical object inside the fans, something might have went in there. Let me know what happens.

Yeah sorry, here is the good one : https://soundcloud.com/artege/sound_problem_y530/s-xnwOa

 

I've already done that but the problem seems to come from the axis or from the motor of the fan. I could have solve that but sadly the fan can not be opened without removing the warranty sticker (I guess). So... I think i'll have to wait for a return.

Something could be loose, or there could be something in there that's small and stuck that the fans are kind of grazing.

I don't know why they made it against the warranty to do that, but you can always take it off and put it back on using a few tricks. Anyway, if you don't want to void the warranty you'll have to give it to them to check it out.

Hello All, 

idon't know if you found any solution for your problem, i faced the same issue with my Lenovo Y530.

after just 3 days of using it, it was strange that the fans suddenly blast noise for like 2-3 min even if the room is cool. 

INFACT it was just me tapping Fn+A buttons in the same time, which "apparently launch the turbo FAN mode".

So you just need to tape it again or also you can do that by typping Ctrl+Shift+1

For me this is the best - not tooo gamy - looking Laptop so far. (of course comparing to  the price/quality rate it gaves.

Hi,

 

I have the exact same issue with my lenovo Legion Y7000. There is a clinky sound coming from the right side fan at a particalar speed. And particularly when you place the laptop base at 45 degrees angle or 90 degrees angle.(Assume you are laying on your back and you placed the lap on your thighs and using=45 degrees angle)

 

This is very very annoying and literally painful when hearing this from a brand new laptop. I bought it in USA and moved to India not sure what to do. Im sure this is a fan Hardware issue. Im not talking about the sudden boost of fans going loud. They go calm automatically after 30-40 sec. Im not at all bothered with that.

 

My issue is the fan is making CLLINK CLINK CLINK sound at a particular speed. I'm really really afraid these fans will not last longer. May be in future we need to replace them.

 

Please suggest us there is anything you can do Lenovo.

 

I dont have hopes that I would get a solution for this but thanks anyways

-Siva

I have the same issue and I just activated my warranty. Do you know if they replace the fan? Do you had any problems?
