The fan shouldn't kick off when you overheat, but it may be the coolant is low and not operating the switch. Best ting to do is when the engine gets hot shut the engine off and disconnect the fan so you don't get hurt. Feel the radiator all over. If you feel any area where it is cold then you need a new radiator or yours recored. It should be or feeel the same temperature all over.
