Fans not turning on even when the laptop is hot

I’ve run lm_sensors and it tells me no sensors are detected and that thermals are probably controlled by ACPI. I checked which acpi modules are available with
ls -l /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/acpi
and noticed that the thermal module isn’t present. I feel that might be the issue but can’t figure out how to rectify it.

Kernel Version: Linux manjaro 5.8.11-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT
Laptop: Lenovo thinkpad E14 gen 2
CPU: Ryzen 4500U

There is no additional module needed for your processor. It is built into the kernel.

You can see the temp by executing


It should show something with k10temp…
