    I have a hove Bator 1602n gqf incubator and having temperature problems can anyone help I plugged in in with no egg in it to get it stable the room temperature is 55 degrees it gets up to 100 degrees which the instruction said it should be. Now the power light stays on it should go off till it gets under 100 so the heating coil is always on but won't get any higher then 100 now if I adjust say to 90 degrees it goes on and off like it should.any ideas?

    If you search, there are a number of threads here that address that model's temperature fluctuations, like this one (I added my two cents', too): https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/701278/hova-bator-1602n-and-temp-issues.

    I was so exasperated with mine and the very poor results, I got a different model. One thought: do you have an additional thermometer to verify the temperature reading?
