    Is there moister on youre viewming windows?

    If so take some paper towls and clean of the extra moister on the windows and sides of the bator

    How much water did you put in

    it should be about 65-70 with a minumum of 60 and a max of about 75 , 70 being a good solid number.

    If you poured water into the bottom reservoirs, take a sponge or bundled up paper towels and wick some out.

    I have used wet sponges to add humidity to my LG, so if you did that, just remove a couple of the sponges.

    How is your water in your LG?

    Do you have both red plugs out? Is it still air or forced air (fan)? How did you "up" the humidity? What temperature was the water you used?
