    OH
    and which red plug helps regulate humidity.
    and will this effect the temprature?

    Quote:Ok, on your temp is the light on? it should come on, then when it hits 101 turn the knob JUST until the light turns off and it should switch between about 100 - 101

    or, if it is on, just turn the knob til it goes off when it hits 101

    light is on now, so do i turn it to the right slightly to make it go up to 100-101?

    Quote:both plugs will regulate - one will let the humidity down a bit, both will let it down a lot.

    The temp will also go down a degree or three with the plugs out.

    When you get it set to go off at 101 and go on at about 99 - 100 then leave it overnight to see if it stays there.
