T480 Fan Error

In my T480 I am noticing the bottom of the laptop gets supper buring hot, and the laptop is very quite that is cooling Fan is not running.

Upon trying restart the laptop, it shows 'Fan Error' in black screen and the laptop does not start.

Have to hit the Power button again to start the laptop.


I am affraid if not vigilent (when fan is not working) and the laptop will get very hot and damage the hardware.


Started in April, (got this laptop in end of Jan 2019) and it is happending twice a week.


Anyone else experincing this Fan Error issue on T480?

Re: T480 Fan Error

Take the laptop into your local ASP or call support for depot service, your thermal fan and fan cable connection should be diagnosed.

Re: T480 Fan Error

I will did 2 critical and 3 recomended System update.

I will continue to monitor if the Fan Error happens again, but if it happens again for sure will call Lenovo on-site that my Company has with all Lenovo laptops.

Thanks for that suggestion.
