Its that time of year again. The birds are singing, the chicks are hatching, and the frustrated screams of those (like me) who cant get their incubators to function properly can be heard from my house!!!! I bought a well insulated incubator, and got the bulbs, the wire for the eggs to rest on, the dimmer switch, the pie tins and sponges, and the hygrometer/thermometer. The only thing I didnt get was a therapist to help me through this! This is the second incubator I have put together, but with competely different results. I have read many posts about the water heater thermostat, so I went out and got one. Installed it the same day. Got frustrated the next day. The light goes off around 101 degrees and doesnt come back on untill around 88 degrees, even with the thermostat inches away from the bulb and held off the wall with stray nerf bullets that are always lying around the house. And now, the temp and humidity will not stay stable, so I am trying to find a way to install a pc fan. If anyone can help with step by step instructions, including the wiring, that would be great. Also, can anyone help with the thermostat?
