The cooling fan is not working

Always place your Lenovo Thinkpad 11e Setup laptop on a firm level. There is no perfect reason why the fan stops suddenly after a bootup. In such scenario, shut down the laptop and then start it again after 2-3 minutes. The fan accumulates dust on its blades. This will reduce its efficiency to cool down the machine and hence the fan gets clogged due to dust. Try to clean the fan by disassembling the laptop and clean the fan blades to remove the dust. It is recommended to clean the fan once in every 3 years.

Try blowing compressed air in the laptop fan through its vent. This is to remove the dust. Blow air several times in the fan’s air vents located on left or right. Do not use high pressurized compressed air in the air vents. If the charge in the battery reaches below 20%, the internal fan automatically stops. This, in few cases, can damage the motherboard and CPU due to overheating. It is due to the fact that the cooling system is stopped temporarily due to very low charge.
