Mine does the exact same thing. It also sits that way until I remove the cap no matter how many days it sits without being run. Dont know if that's good or bad...

Probably a faulty temp sensor.

I guess I should've worded that better...it will get over 190*....but settles at 188-190* in most cases...even in temps 100* or so
