SMC Problem Reference Code PFM 006
Fan is running all the time, while the laptop is totally cool and also well aired.
Diagnostics returns with SMC-Problem, Reference Code PFM 006.
SMC reset attempts do not change anything. What can be done?
Dear Dan, No nothing spilled into the laptop and it did not drop or get banged. The worst that happened to it: it got transported several times in a padded back pack on planes and trains.
The story with the fan is lengthy. It started to act up last September but returned to normal after I stopped Drop Box to run all the time. Two weeks later the fan started up again for a month. One night 2/3 through backing up my home directory the fan stopped running again and everything seemed normal (when the fan is going full force start-up is very slow erratic, also the computer is very slow. Activity though is very low). Anyhow the fan then started to act up again about three weeks ago.
I wonder whether there is a fully temperature gauge.
