MacBook Fan Replacement and Overheating Repair

How to prevent overheating?

One of the most common problems that the majority of Mac users experience is constant overheating. This overheating issue is not normally observed in newer Macbook or iMacs, rather when your machine gets loaded with files and Apps causing a huge load on your processor than the overheating kicks-in.
Overheating MacBook is not something to be ignored for too long because apart from noisy fans and constant temperature warning distractions, overheating can permanently damage your machine shutting it down abruptly or in some instances causing hardware damage as it is exposed to constant high temperature.

Dust tends to accumulate on your Macbook parts including motherboard, vents, keyboard, and fans. Dirty and clogged fans are unable to cool down the machine and therefore cleaning them becomes necessary to keep your Macbook running cool. You can also use something to blow off the dirt from the vents gently or use a soft cloth to wipe off dust. The following guidance is to help you find the cause and quick solutions to prevent your MacBook from overheating.

Why my MacBook is heating up?

There is no simple answer to this particular question, as there is a myriad of reasons that can cause Macs to overheat. Thereafter, we will look at different ways to know whether your MacBook is overheating and our expert technicians will provide you services for MacBook repair in Singapore.

 

Check Macbook Activity Monitor

Sometimes your Macbook overheats because of being overworked, like too many systems or Apps opened simultaneously or too many tabs opened on your browser causing strain on your processor. Especially if you are using heavy programs like 4K video rendering and Spotify simultaneously consuming lots of processing power and RAM, these can cause your Macbook to overheat.
Using the Activity Monitor app on your Mac OS you can find out which runaway Apps are draining CPU, power, and memory causing a drop in your Mac speed and raising the temperature. Simply go to “Applications” on your Mac OS and in “Utilities” click “Activity Monitor”. In Activity Monitor just see the CPU tab and you will see which App is draining the resources.

Just double click on Apps that are draining resources and you will observe an instant a noticeable difference in the performance of your Mac and can see the temperature going down.
Apart from these above-mentioned problems, numerous other factors can account for overheating of the Macbook. If overheating reason is not obvious then we will disassemble your Macbook to inspect the cooling fan and condition of thermal paste applied on different components including chipset, processor, and graphics card. Based on these finding our technicians will resolve your Macbook overheating repair issues.

 

Check the Macbook Fan

The most noticeable sign of a heated Macbook is your fan running at higher speeds (than normal) and being noisy. Though your MacBook fan is always-on but if the machine is overheating the fan tries desperately to cool it down by running at higher RPMs. Noisy Macbook fan also means that it might be broken or not working at an optimum level. In this scenario, you might have to go for Macbook cooling fan replacement.

Our professional technicians will use precise tools to disassemble your Macbook to confirm the overheating fault. Once the fault is confirmed, our technicians will clean the cooling fan if it's clogged with dust or will replace it if vents are stuck or the bearing is faulty/noisy. We will confirm with you before replacing the cooling fan and will also give you a price quote as every model of Mac (Macbook or iMac) comes with different parts. Normally, Macbook cooling fan replacement will cost around $80 plus $150 for overheating repair.

Apply thermal paste on CPU and graphic card

CPU thermal paste is very critical as this thermal paste helps in the transfer of heat out from the CPU to the heat sink of your Macbook Pro. Even if your fan is working optimally but the paste is dried, the Mac will keep on heating. Our professional computer technicians will apply best quality CPU thermal paste at a minimum cost. After fixing the fault, we will check in-detail the temperature readings of your Mac and verify the temperature ranges. This after repair check will not take more than 1 hour.

Since our computer technicians work diligently on your Mac to resolve the overheating issues, therefore, it consumes a lot of time. We usually require 24 hours to disassemble, resolve, assemble and check your Mac to make sure that the overheating issue is resolved.
