Recently had a hard drive fail in a Dell Inspiron 2330 (an all in one). Most likely cause of failure was prolonged exposure to heat after being in such a confined space. My question is this, if I replace the hard drive with an SSD will the SSD be less likely to fail from such poor cooling? This is for a work computer and the performance increase of the SSD is unimportant, only the reliability.

High temperatures can also affect SSDs. Commercially designed and produced systems should be engineered to maintain proper component temperatures, however as you seem to be experiencing there can be problems. Whether you use HDDs or SSDs you should first solve the temperature problem. That may be as simple as cleaning out dust, relocating cables or components that may be interfering with airflow, or replacing a failed fan. If the system is clean, has good airflow and all fans are operating properly then you may be able to improve cooling by installing a more powerful fan, reworking the vents, relocating components, etc. Scott.
