    Call AppleCare and get it fixed or replaced.

    You don't say which new iMac you have.  My late-2012 27" iMac is totally silent in normal operation.  When performing a CPU intensive task the fan does go from its nominal 1200RPM to about 2000 RPM but it is still quieter than any of my external hard drives--which are pretty quiet.

     

    There is another thread about noise on the new 27" iMacs and a couple on noise in the 21.5" units.
