I took the iMac to the Apple store and they said the faulty sensor is in the logic board, needing replacement of the same. Being a 2009 Mac and with the new one coming out now I decided not to repair id. Cost is more than half a new iMac.
I wonder about that? I'm not disputing what the Apple tech told you but the temperature sensors in most MacBook Pro models are replaceable without having to replace the logic board. I would assume the same applies to the iMac series. I would check out the tear down of your particular machine at iFixit: The free repair manual and see for yourself.

Gaining entry into any iMac requires some skill and patience and is certainly not an easy task, so keep that in mind.
