    I would add a fan and see if that helps. Can you post a picture of your incubator? I got a mini fridge and will be making a new incubator soon.

    my computer is fried right now but when i have a new one i will post a picture. I added a fan and i am able too incubate 500 eggs if i want now.
    it was east too build i made a 2x4 frame that is 36"dx 36"high x 24" wide. and plywood too cover the frame. r-19 insulation on walls covered with plastic and an bathroom exhaust fan too circulate the air from the fan cooled element.
