I have actually just an hour ago had a black Macbook disassembled, to fix the fan issue. I used the guide at ifixit.com to loosen the fan. You would be so surprised how much dust there was behind the fan (you can't see it until you unscrew the fan and lift it up and look behind it). It was completely blocked so it couldn't get in air. I removed all the dust and reassembled the computer, and after that it takes A LOT more to make the fan start.

I know it seems like a very aggressive method but it really works! Good luck if you venture that way! :-)
