Electric Fan wont turn on..

So i changed the fan temp switch on the radiator, and still no fan turn on. my after market gauge says the temp is at 200f to 210f and the fan never turns on. Keep in mind the gauge sensor is located in the top hose. that means the water coming out the thermostat is what is getting read.
at what temp is the fan to turn on? the fan used to turn on all the time.
I checked fuses , all good.
Thanks for your time

I have a e36 323 and the fan is mechanical (meaning it runs off the water pump) try changing your fan clutch, get a aluminum thermostat housing, and check the impeller on the water pump they are made of plastic, get a new one that is metal.
