You really need to get that fan running. Over time the heat build up may do damage costing you more in the long run. The connector you tried removing "gently" from the logic board can probably be repaired with the proper tools.

Normally wires that go into that type of connector have small metallic clip ends which slide into the openings and lock in place. It's possible when you pulled on the connector the wires came loose from the metal clips. More than likely the clips are still in the connector. The best way to remove those types of connectors is by gently prying them upward away from the board with a small flat plastic tool.

Anyway, consider repairing it. You may be able to do it yourself or find someone who is proficient at doing that type of work.

Regards.
