Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

I have the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Generation, and I am also experiencing the same problem. I have tried all the fixes and solutions but nothing worked, and I am really disappointed that Lenovo hasn't addressed this issue until now. I really regret moving from my old Dell laptop to this.

Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

Windows Wireless LAN Extensibility Framework often hogs CPU usage in excess of 20%. This in turn makes the fan run constantly. To check if this is possibly the issue, look in Task Manager for this service and see how much CPU % it's using. 

To resolve this specific issue, you need to disable then re-enable the WiFi adapter. In Win 10, go into Network Connections by right-clicking on the Windows Start icon. In Network Connections, click on Change Adapter options, right-click on the WiFi adapter, select disable, wait a few moments. You should hear the fan starting to slow. Re-enable the WiFi adapter. 

I have just done this and my fan has gone from running 100% to virtually zero.

Hope this helps.

Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

Hi ThinkBox I installed tpfancontrol as you recommended on my X1 Yoga 1st gen. I opened the tpfanncontrol software. It is set on smart mode. The laptop fan stopped completely. Do you use a X1 Yoga? Did you have this problem too? The fan always working? If the laptop becomes hot would the fan start again?

Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

Yes I have done all that. The TPFan control has stopped the fan working all the time. In fact I haven't heard the fan working at all. I was worried the laptop may get hot under. But it doesn't. Amazing. Thank you. Then I thought maybe I should for once try the trick to disable and enable the wi-fi adapter per our friend's (Adyh - Paper Tape) recommendation. Adyh's comment is on 12/13/2017 just before my comment. So I uninstalled the TPFanControl and disabled and enabled the wi-fi adapter. The fan is still off. It looks its working. The laptop is not hot under. I am using the internet, documents and office 365 sync. I will wait a few days. If the fan stays off, I will not do anything else. If it starts again working non stop, then the solution is to reinstall the TPFanControl. Thank you ThinkBox and Adyh
