I asked because there may not be a problem. The cooling fan is a 2 speed and low speed comes on at 217 degrees and high speed kicks at 230 degrees. Depending how hot it actually gets, it may either be normal or it may be missing low speed. I would let it idle and let the temp rise as high as the red zone before shutting it off. That won't damage anything. If only high speed comes on, then you will have to find out why.
