    Hi,
    I am having some trouble regulating the heat in my incubator. I have an LG 9200 still air and from what I have read I am to keep the temp at 102 degrees at the top of the eggs. I have been doing this but the temp half way up the egg is only about 95. If I try to bring the temp up to 99 degrees at the halfway point the temp at the top of the eggs gets way to high. Is there some way to regulate this? I am having fits over this! Thanks!

    I just go by the temp at the hight of the eggs , it veries. If you can get ahold of a fan kit for it or go and get a computer fan and a cell phone charger that would help with circulateing the air .
    GOOD LUCK

    Thanks. I am waiting on a new incubator but they have been slow to ship it. Warehouse problems... I can't wait to not use this darn Lg any more. It's driving me insane.
