    Well, I know it's above 90 degrees, but it still says "L".

    Do you have any other thermometers you could use to double check the temp?

    Trust me it is not a good thing. It feeds the addiction. At least it doesn't put the lotion on the skin... Yet. The worst part is autocorrect. With words like wyandotte which aren't in the dictionary it corrects them to what it thinks it should be. Wyandotte becomes shamrock. Makes for some funny posts sometimes though... And some inappropriate ones too and not on purpose.

    Well, I know my Brinsea thermostat isn't working.

    I set it for 102.5

    I have 3 other sensors besides the spot check (that isn't working) inside the bator.

    One says the temp is 100.1
    One says the temp is 98
    One says the temp is 93... and I always thought this one was the most accurate.. .I've had it in the dental office and it was the same as the thermostat for the AC/heater. ?????
    The spot check reads "L"
    ON top of the Brinsea it says it is 101.9

    So I've got less than two days to try and get this correct.

    So if I throw out the 93.. which can't be correct and I average in the others I'm at 100.

    ARGH!!!!!
