Put the eggs in when you can keep the temp at a steady 99.5F/37.5C.
LG incubators are notorious for wild temp fluctuations. After adjusting the temperature, wait at least 8 hours before adjusting again and always make very minor adjustments.
Several incubators use 40 watt elements but that amount of energy is very susceptible to ambient temperature fluctuations so keep it somewhere that temps remain relatively constant. Sometimes a closet can work and the warmer the space the better so the heat element doesn't have to cycle so often.
The most critical thing is to have a guaranteed accurate or calibrated thermometer.
