#StackBounty: #lenovo #fan #fancontrol #lm-sensors Unable to get fan to work on Lenovo 14w

Bounty: 100

I installed Ubuntu 19.10 on my new Lenovo 14w laptop and I noticed that the fans are not running at all, causing high temps.

I have installed fancontrol but couldn’t figure out the config.

Running pwmconfig results in an error There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

And lastly, sensors-detect shows I have AMD Family 15h thermal sensors (driver 'k10temp')

Some posts seem to mention that some Lenovo models have their fans controlled by the UEFI BIOS, however there aren’t any such options in my BIOS.

What can I do to get the fan spinning?

Edit: Here’s the full sensors-detect output. Couldn’t fit in this post due to character limit
