    turn it off and take the lid off.

    Check that the wafer is screwed on straight and not cross threaded.

    Add turner and turn it on.

    Add a small tupperware container of water (sealed) - this will represent the eggs.

    Screw down wafer so it is making contact. Turn bator on (light should be off)

    Increase temp by turning screw. Once light comes on, turn one full turn and stop.

    when light goes off then repeat.

    once you get to 94. use half turn.

    once you get to 98 use quarter turn.

    keep calm and incubate on.
