General cold start questions

I bought my first diesel (97 psd) around a month ago and i noticed that the colder it gets the harder it is to start sometimes i have to cycle the wait to start light 5 or 6 times so i figured i would plug it in just to make it easier well the next morning i went out it was just as hard. so i was wondering if there is a way to check the block heater to see if its the cord or the heater itself and if this is a normal reaction or if there may be another reason why it's so hard to start i replaced the gpr hoping this would help I'm going to check the gp tonight any info would be greatly appreciated.
