not sure but i would guess a few days for an apple store and a little over a week or two if you send it in, but don't take my word, its just an educated guess.

If you're planning on taking it in to an Apple store (genius bar), make an appointment first. The stores are very busy this time of year and that means the genius bar is likewise busy. Normally a fan can be swapped out by a technician in an hour or so if there's nothing else wrong, but again that depends on how busy they are.

Regards.
