    sounds like you need a new thermostat.

    Have you tested it with more than one thermometer? Sometimes thermometers don't measure accurately. I messed up a hatch like that once.

    I have tried another thermometer the incubator gets hot even when the red light isn't on and the knob is turned all the way down.

    Then I also think it's time for a new thermostat.
