Lenovo has recalled select ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation laptops manufactured between December 2016 and October 2017. Lenovo has determined that a
limited number of such laptops may have an unfastened screw that could damage the laptop’s battery causing overheating, potentially posing a fire hazard.
Lenovo has received three customer reports of a battery overheating that resulted in damage to the laptop. Lenovo has received no reports of harm to
any person or property, other than to the laptop. Laptops manufactured on or after November 1, 2017 are not affected.
Effective immediately, Lenovo is offering free service inspections for all affected ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation laptops manufactured between the
dates as stated above. The affected systems can be identified by machine type, serial number and build date.
