I was trying to raise my humidity and I added some hot tap water and the temp in the incubator jumpted to 105f for about a minute before I noticed I opened to cool it down and it cooled down. Is this an instant death situation?

As long as you cooled it back down immediately, you're probably OK. What day are you on? When I add water, I always use a candy thermometer to check the temp of the water before adding it.

When I started out, I thought I'd be pretty good at guessing the temp of the water by sticking my finger in it - Wrong! It was always too hot or too cold and I'd see big temp flucuations. It didn't dawn on me to use a thermometer until I was rummaging thru the utinsel drawer one day and spotted it! I have no idea why it was there in the first place - I've never made candy!
