Can broken G1 Mini 's be fixed

I have a broken G1 Mini test miners from the community batch that had heating issues laying around for 1 year now. II was planning to try to fix it but I postponed this task since I have zero experience on how to repair broken ASICS. I know many community members have broken miners like I do.

My question is, does anyone have experience repairing A G1 Mini? If so, can you share your experience with us :pray:
Is it worth the trouble to attempt a repair, or should I just order a new one for 290$?

Iā€™d open it and look if the heat sink is loose or if it needs re-pasting.
