Is this a normal fan speed and CPU temperature for an idle MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015). The fact that fan 2 is not spinning worries me. I can get 'loaded' fan speeds and temps if that would be helpful.

UPDATE

I sent the mac off to be fixed and it turned out to be something stuck in the right fan causing it to not move! Looking at my fan speeds now: left: 3000rpm right: 2800rpm (seems consistently slower so maybe slightly damaged :L)

CPU temp is now idle at: 48°C ish

Long story short if one of your fan's is around zero then its got stuck or has broken!

    I've owned two rMBP models, and both always had both of fans spinning (lowest speed is ~2000 RPM). All of those temps look within standard range. I'd try running Apple Hardware test to make sure there isn't a problem with your fan (make sure it's not broken). – NoahL Jan 13 '17 at 4:10

The various temperature readings look absolutely 100% fine!

This resource (which can be filtered) clearly shows that your CPU temp at 52.38°C is nothing to worry about.

My MBP temp is regularly between 66 and 81 degrees, and my fans are regularly at 6200 RPM when my CPU usage is high.

However, the fact that your stats indicate only one fan is spinning warrants further investigation. I would run an Apple Hardware Diagnostics to see if it finds any errors. To do this:

  1. Fully shut down your MBP
  2. Restart your MBP
  3. Immediately press the D key and keep it down until you see the Diagnostics screen appear
  4. Wait for Diagnostics to finish (this typically only takes a few minutes)
  5. Once complete, one of two things will appear on the screen:
    • a No issues found message
    • a brief description of any errors found plus further instructions
  6. If the diagnostics test does find errors, take a note of what they are

Note: If pressing and holding the D key at Step 3 doesn't work, start again at Step 1 and, at Step 3 press and hold both the OptionD keys instead. This will try and run diagnostics from the internet instead, so you will need to allow more time for it to complete.

Let us know how you go.

Macbook pro shut off temp is around 105 to 110C if I read correctly. Also fans will favor silence over cooling in macbooks. So likely that second fan is not kicking in until it reaches something like 70C.

If over time you notice an upwards trend of temps, I'd look into cleaning the dust out and getting an application called Macs Fan Control to turn up the fan speeds based on temps. The downside is, the faster you run the fans, the sooner they will wear out.
