Slackware Fan/Cooler Control on Toshiba U505

Hi there!
So, my pain story: I installed Slackware 14.2 stable on Toshiba U505. Upgraded with slackpkg to Kernel 4.4.75.
When I was at 4.4.14 Fan maked a lot of noise but kept cpu cool (~40-45 degrees Celsius). But after (kernel) upgrade it become very silent and notebook very hot.
How to make fan to work noisy (efficient) again?
