Good suggestion. Usually it warms up at least 20 minutes as it's the first thing I turn on in the morning before hopping in the shower. I let it sit a good hour this morning and it topped out at 70 degrees.

Seeing the picture I would start with replacing the crimp spade terminal on the wire. That is a Lot of resistance on the terminal, and not in the heating element. The're cheap enough. I had this problem (Overheated terminal on my de longhi.) I might even have soldered them together had I not purchased a new machine, as I found it loose again a year later.. That being said, Not quite sure what is causing your issue, as the thermostat(Assuming a klickston) is cycling, as this means the boiler is at least at temp. Another quickie.. Did you use thermal compound when you installed the new switch? THo this should cause an overtemp, and not a lack of. Good luck!
