    Question Faulty fan plug on logic board


    I have an iMac 27-inch late 2012 model, which has recently transpired its extended apple care protection plan.

    I have an issue with the cooling system, and thought the problem was with the cooling fan itself.

    However, the local authorised repairer has assessed the problem is a faulty fan plug on the logic board. Their solution was to purchase and install a replacement logic board.

    My question is whether there is a simpler, lower-cost solution to fix the fan plug? I'm not convinced paying $1000+ to replace the logic board on an aging desktop is the best investment.

    Any advice or help would be appreciated.
