A Mac mini only has one fan. 33°C is actually a very good temp. Mine runs at about 43°C.
Perhaps a reset of the System Management Controller is appropriate.
1. Power down and disconnect all cables; power, USB, Ethernet, FireWire, etc.
2. Wait at least 15 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cables and a USB keyboard and mouse.
4. Restart. After the Mac is fully booted you may reattach all hot connectable peripherals.
I ended up re-soldering the sensor wire back to the interconnect board. Following this and after re-positioning the sensor pad from the rear of the metal HD case to the plastic molding on the HD support, my temperature readings are back to norms, the fan is barely audible (was spinning full boar at 5,400 rpm), and mean temp has risen slightly (probably due to the fan running less). Yay! Thanks for the suggestions!
