    I have a Cabinet incubator. It was holding temp and today it has dropped down a couple degress. The house temp is the same. How do you check your thermostat. It is a electronic. And a back up waffer. But the inside is not getting to temp. The electronic is turned all the way up.

    Could it be your heating element? Is the electronic thermostat running?

    Quote:How would you check it? It was holding temp good till today. It started dropping. I turned the wafer thermo up and it is holding 102 on top and 100 on the bottom.

    i check my digital thermostats on my fish tank... the controller keeps it at 76° constant... or get a warm glass of water, and put both that thermometer and a medical thermometer... i'd trust the medical one more...
