I have placed two Accurite Thermometers in my Fridgebator. It has three trays I placed thermo one in the middle of the three trays. Then decided to place the second between tray two and three. The first reading on thermo #1 is 99.5-99.9, the second thermo is reading 70.4-72.8 and its only 3-4" away.

I changed batteries to make sure they were fresh and still get this very low reading. It is a circulating fan type bator. Any ideas?


Thanks

Wish I could help on this one. The temp readings are why we turned our little fridge on its back so it would open like a chest freezer. That did it, but obviously limits the number of eggs it can hold.

probably something is blocking the air flow,, OR your fan might be a little on the small size.. maybe you could a second fan?

I have this same problem with my old sportsman.. the bottom shelf is 10 degrees cooler than the top.
