    I have a 1583 hovabator with the fan in it. I went to bed at 2:am and got up at 7:30 am. Everything was ok at 2am fan not working this morning and temp went down to 95. Any suggestions, bator is loaded with 42 eggs since sunday.

    I'm not familar with the hovabators but, can you turn the temp up to 101-102? That is the temp range for a still air.

    Yep, just adjust it to still-air values.

    I try to keep my humidity between 40 to 50% the first 18 days....60 to 70% this last 3.....

    still air or 1583 doesn't matter...I have both kinds of bators...
