New Yoga 2 pro 13.3 Fans running constantly

2014-03-22, 14:30 PM

i just bought my Yoga 2 pro 13.3 this week. I've noticed that fans are always spinning. although they are not that loud. sometimes the bottom where the fans are gets warm. is this normal? should I be worried?

I think it is completely normal for your fans to be running all the time like you describe. The fans in my Yoga 2 Pro behave like yours: on all the time but very quiet unless I'm doing something CPU-intensive. The bottom of the laptop is comfortably warm near the vents most of the time but gets a bit hotter as the CPU does more work, again I think this is normal.

 

Intel and Lenovo made a nice improvement in fan noise and temperature when moving from the original Yoga 13 to the Yoga 2 Pro. I've owned both and the old Yoga 13 was louder and ran hotter.

Depending on what your doing the buttom of the laptop will get warm. The fans really should net be running ALL the time.

 

If it's hot/warm all the time and the fans run all the time something is not right.

Well, if you hearing because you putting you ear to the vents, that's probably not something to worry about.

 

If they where kicking in high where you heard them easliy all the time, then I'd be concerned. If I put my ears to the vests I can hear the fans too. Only on occasion can I hear then kick into a higher speed.

well, thank you dears for your quick responses. funny enough, the first thing that made me go for the yoga 2 pro was all those reviews about how quiet and cool it is, as a previuos mac user, that would be the holy grail for me. so, I guess it's what made me over-suspecious about any noise/fan activity or heat.

Re: New Yoga 2 pro 13.3 Fans running constantly

Just brought my yoga 2 pro i7, 8gb, 256GB machine home and exact same issue.

 

Fan running coontinuously while machine is idle as soon as it starts up.. Machine uncomforatbly hot to the touch over the vents, not pleasant to hold in portrait mode as a tablet.

 

Installed the latest bios update available on lenovo support site *=(8/22/2014)

 

Rebooted the machine, and finally near silence.

I was about to take this back to best buy thinking it was defective.  

 

Lenovo cna someone please calrify what changes this bios update has and if this fan issue was a known issue addressed by the upgrade?

 

Thanks,

Previously it was fans were running non-stop for over one week. 
I just ran the lenovo hardware test, on best performance setting, and the fans stopped making noise. 

You might want to give it a try.

My fans were running for a week constantly, 

I checked all the forums and could not find a solution. 

I just ran the lenovo hardware test on the laptop's best performance setting, and the fans stopped running after it was done. 
So far no noise, you might want to try it!
