XU4 fan does not seem to be working

Unread post by grimace » Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:38 am

I just received the XU4, plugged in and started upgrading OS

apt update
apt upgrade <--- waiting for this to finish
...


The cpu fan has not run, ever. I'm looking at the temp
`cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp`
84000
80000
83000
84000
76000
trip points:
`cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/trip_point_0_temp`
60000
60000
60000
60000
85000

I'm a little concerned that the temperatures are running so high without the cpu fan turning on. Is this an issue?

Your fan is not working, I would seek a replacement.

What OS?

Carefully unplug the fan connector with tweezers and check the clamps.

BTW, which OS image did you install?
