Fan won't stop running

Hey everyone,

I've had my mid-2015 MPB since late 2015 and use it for around eight hours daily for pretty CPU intensive audio production.

However, recently the fan has been running non-stop even when I'm not using the computer, and I think it's due to dust building up inside the computer.

What's the best way to clean it out? Is it even possible? I'm not looking to replace any parts (I don't think), just want to give it a nice once-over to remove any dust or other crap that might be in there.

Is this a good question?

The best and easiest way to clean it, if you have the proper screwdriver and a canned air, you can open it up and blow the dust with the canned air.

Here is a link to the tool kit with then needed screwdriver: Essential Electronics Toolkit
