humidity is based on surface area so just remove the water and allow the unit to stabilize dry then add water to as many channels as it takes to get around 30 to 40%

ok i added water to all channels is that why its so high???



yep number of channels equals level of humidity. Depth of water makes no difference (once the water has warmed up) so use less channels to drop the humidity,

Good news when it comes to lock down you know how many channels you need to get to 70-80%.

I have the same incubator. I start out with one table spoon of water in a small Tupperware container and then let it set several hours - adding more only if needed. I plug one hole with a dime sitting on it and leave the other open. I DO NOT add water to the bottom - only using the container.
