already pulled the thermostats out. those things are expensive . incubator warehouse has one that is cheaper . I don't think it is for wet applications so I would have to mount on the side of the cabinet and use the probe . I'll go back with the GQF replacement . their also the cheapest place to get them. got the two incubators in and the better one has the same problem I think . the turner works good and the fan is not as loud as the hatcher . also the thermostat is not a GQF don't know what it is . and the pilot light is not working on the turner or the heater. so maybe its just a bad switch. I don't have a fax so I have take invoices to Nashville and lose at least hours .Tomorrow I'll go pick up checks and do it again .that's four hours not going to get much done on them for a few days . I'll start putting the hatcher back together tonight .if I don't fall asleep first .
STC-1000 is under $15 on ebay, I have had one running in my homebuilt incubator since last February. It can handle humidity, just not water contact. But as good as it is, the GQF proportional thermostat is better. I bought this one for mine http://www.gqfmfg.com/cabinet-accessories/3255-deluxe-multi-turn-electronic-thermostat-with-plug/ and it is amazing. But the good old fashioned wafer http://www.gqfmfg.com/cabinet-model-parts/3122-wafer-thermostat/ will hatch enough eggs for you so you can buy the electronic one after hatching and selling a few birds. If they weren't so big and you so far I'd buy one off you as is.
