How long does it take to come back to temp after setting in a Hovabator? Taking my new Hovabator for its first spin with 36 eggs I set yesterday. I had it stable at 100.5F for over a day before setting, but its been 18 hours now and still hasn't come to temp. It seemed to stall at 96 so I adjusted the T-stat after 12 hours... doesn't seem to be moving past 98 in spite of a few more turns up. The light indicating the element is on has been on every time I've checked, so I'm leaning towards it not being a t-stat issue. My house is on the cooler end of the spectrum, 58, but fairly stable in that particular room and the incubator was able to hit 104 when I was first getting the thermostat adjusted a few days before setting.
