Fans wont come on when warm

(1994 Acura Integra)
I have a integra 1994 LS. manual. New radatior fluid....246000. Orig owner. Fans come on with air, but when ideling the car is running more warm., and smells hot. It normally runs at 1/4 heat gauge. Now almost 1/2. Cools down with air, or driving constant speed.
I have newer radiator, and had new belt/water pump at 190,000. What is most likely wrong??? It also had new heater about 20,000 miles ago...and new coil.......Thanks belinda
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Extended idle
How long have you had this problem? a week

Engine idling - a/c off - it will take a good bit of time before the radiator cooling fan will turn on.

IF the engine is actually OVERHEATING - seek *hands-on* assistance from qualified personnel.
