It may be just as cheap to buy, borrow or beg another soldering iron to make the repair and if necessary sell it on afterwards or give it to yor mate for a Xmas present. Maplins do a cheapie for around £6.
As a matter of interest have you checked the pollen filter - if it gets blocked air-flow is restricted and the unit tends to overheat
