After being plugged in for 3 hours put your bare hand on the valve cover it should be slightly warm and your temp gauge should be close to the middle, maybe at the lower range of the normal operating temp window. If not I'd have the dealer replace it under warranty.

After a 3 hour plug in mine pumps out heat very quickly after starting the engine.
