Hi.Yes,normal operating tenpeture for these vehicles is anythere between 180 an 205. At about 205 degree,the ECM turns on the coolant fans.The only time the coolant fans are on at all times is when the a/c is on.As far as the funny smell,it could be the heatercore starting to leak.If it smells like coolant,it will be the heater core.I suggest you take it to your local dealership.This repair will be covered under the factory warrenty.

This is a problem with your thermister (heat sensor) You will find this on the left side of the water manifold about half way down. I'm not sure but I think it is a small tube that slides into the manifold and if you follow the wires back to the board it just plugs in. The part is reasonable priced for a heater part and very easy to install. Good luck.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
The part you will need is called a thermistor; it is the part that reads water temp and converts it to a digital signal for the board to display. The part number should be 42001-0053S. If you need additional details or troubleshooting tips, try the owner’s manual, here. You should be sure that there is no potential problems with water flow prior to just replacing the part. In extreme cases you could have poor water flow and the water in the heater is way too hot (105) yet the pool is much cooler. Generally you will have other indications this is the problem, such as a lot of banging and popping, like making microwave e popcorn. If that’s not the case, the thermistor is the way to go

Time to call qualified service technician. And watch what that person does to learn about your water heater.
I assume you have Honeywell Icon gas valve. Honeywell makes different several model numbers.
Here is 'typical' Honeywell Icon gas valve service manual for Bradford White, that may or may not apply to your water heater. It shows testing for Icon and disassembly instructions, and error codes.
Gas water heaters today require yearly service that includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking vent and air intake, electrical connections, testing gas valve, checking gas pressure, bleeding air out of gas line, etc. These are things you can learn to do by reading service manual, and making sure you have a spare water heater around to connect real quick if experiment goes wrong.
If Icon gas valve is problem, that control is modular and can be replaced without draining tank.
