    Ok, I got a new thermometer yesterday... one with a working probe I think. The temp inside the water wigglers is 99.3 the temp of the incubator is 98.4 is that right? Should the water temp be higher than the inside temp?

    If the air temp was cycling downward after being higher, then the weasel temp was probably still up where the air temp had been. Just wait and see if the air temp cycles back up. If it never goes up to 99.5-100, then I'd adjust the thermostat. There are cycles in air temp and it will have a range, but the weasel will be much more steady and not cycle up and down as quickly.

    Actually, it's been going all night. The new one says the temp inside the wiggler is 99.9 but air temp is 98.8. the old one says air temp is 99.5 I'm thinking I should worry only about the water reading on this new temp. The old ones temp is very close. Humidity is running steady 50%
