I just realized you can get finer control of the temperature if you use the Celcius setting instead of the Fahrenheit setting. Its hard for me to look at C though so I just made a chart that converts it into F so I can quickly glance at it to see.

If you use F setting, Difference Setting of 1 degree F:
Set temp 100F, heat turns off at 100F and on at 99F.

If you use C setting, Difference Setting of 0.3 degree C:
Set temp 37.5C, heat turns off at 99.5F and on at 99F.

So there is 0.5F difference between the two. Just note that if you change from F to C, that some of the other settings get changed back to default.

This is helpful, thanks!

Looks like you set yours on 38.1C (100.6F). Does your incubator not have a fan?

I thought you were supposed to set forced incubators at 99.5F. I set mine at 37.6C (99.7F) just so it would drop to 37.3C (99.1F) and have a median of 99.4F.

We do have a fan, our temp tends to drop too low too fast. Which is why it's set higher. Amazing the difference altitude and weather patterns can make to our incubator requirements!
