I paid $30,000 for my car but I trust the dealer to work on it because I know their mechanics do it every day. I could watch youtube videos and figure out how to do a tuneup but they will do it better. I will change my own air filter however since it is not too hard and will save money. Replacing a cooling fan is more like a tuneup than replacing an air filter. Still, you can do it if you follow the Manual and are careful. Here is the Manual:




This is the part number for your fan and heatsink:




$63 from HP:




$20 on eBay:




I would go ahead and run all the diagnostic tests you can access by tapping F2 and entering UEFI Diagnostics. Other than the fan what other problems are you having?
