Yoga 13 strange Fan noise

2013-03-28, 20:35 PM

This seems a little different than the other posts about fan noise.

 

I got my Yoga 13 today and from the moment I turn it on it make this audible clicking sound as regular as clockwork.

 

There's around 10 clicks lasting for around 2 seconds, followed by six seconds of silence.

 

Has to be the fan as that's the only moving parts in these right?

 

I'm going to call customer services tomorrow.

Did you figure out what the problem was caused by? I've got the same issue and it's driving me crazy! Thanks in advance for your reply.

I'm afraid not. I couldn't live with it and RMA'd it. I've just got my cash back and now think I'll wait for Haswell devices. :-(

Apparently, there's a sticker which was peeling directly above one of the fans, as discovered by someone who dismantled the keyboard.  He removed the sticker or taped it up, and that fixed the problem.   Does that sound like what it could be?

Doesn't sound like a sticker although I suppose it could be. I ended up contacting Lenovo support a couple days ago  and they issued an RMA with prepaid shipping via FedEx. I have to backup the hard drive as they mentioned the machine will be restored to factory settings. I'm hoping this is the only inconvience for years worth of use. Fingers crossed!

This is my second Yoga, and on this Yoga the fan makes a noise whenever I move the laptop a little bit. I don't remember my other Yoga doing that at all.

It sounds like a bad bearing or something.

Does anyone else get a noise like this when the move their Yoga?

Hi,

mine started making that abnormal noise yesterday. I've had it for 2 months, it wasn't doing it before.

Today it also made a really loud noise for a while, and then went back to yesterday's "abnormal" noise. It changes if I move it.

 

The "loose sticker" theory seems consistent with my issue.

 

I called support and it's apparently handled by "Medion". After a bit of a debate, they said to email them with the proof of purchase (which is an email from Amazon EU s.a.r.l.). Then they said they "could not read the current format" (it's an email...) so I re-sent it as PDF. 

 

I can see they're going to give me **bleep**. Why do they have to be difficult =_=

 

Oh and they also asked me for my account password! It's a windows live nowadays so used for everything, **bleep**? I made a local Admin account for them.

I don't know. I'm waiting for the package with instructions to send it to repair.

I'll let you know if they fix it :-/

 

Is this it?

Hi misccold,

Thanks for posting back, If you still have your machine with you, could you possibly try to update the BIOS from the link below.
