If it idles fine, without overheating, the fan is doing its job. It could be a clogged radiator or even a bad radiator cap. Might be air in the coolant than needs to be purged, or the overheating might be caused by a defect in the engine. You just need someone to diagnose this: it isn't rocket science.
