Little Giant 9300 Temperature reading off - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
The fan I used isn't the kit for the incubator but I would image they should be pretty similar, probably the same size. You for sure want to run it cooler because the air is forced. It ended up leveling out around 103 on the built in thermometer for 99.5-100. The temps still seemed to differ slightly in different spots but probably much better than without a fan. I would guess that a fan built into the heater like the kit is would work even better.

thanks. We are now running at 100 on the digital for the LG 9300 and getting 98.7 on the calubrated ones. Slowly working up to 99.5 on day 1.

I also poked a hole in the side of the incubator for one of my meat probes. To get a good reading at the top of the eggs.

nice trick. The calibrated thermometers helped our last hatch, which was still air. We are fluctuating between 89.7 and 99.8 currently. If it can stay in that range, we'll be happy.

I'm hoping that 89.7 is a typo. ;)
