Welcome to Just Answer, I would not touch the fan as it may cause too much harm instead I would fit a new thermostat and then see how performs.

In the winter it is quite normal for diesel engines to take a long time to warm up (I have 2 and the heat only starts to come through after 15 minutes) another thing to try is to blank off 1/2 of the radiator with some cardboard.

I hope this helps, best regards, Vauxdoc.
