Is this normal for a fan forced bator?

First off, let me say that i'm used to still air incubators.

I've got my new Hova-bator running, getting ready to test out. I have a very accurate thermometer in there. The thermometer is reading 39-40 degrees Celsius (102-104) but when I open the lid and quickly put my hand in the air feels cold. Is that just what happens with fans?

Also, I have turned it down as low as it can go and it is still up at 39 (102<). What am I supposed to do about that?

Yes the fan does feel a bit cool I've noticed that. I'd double check with a second thermometer as even with one you trust it could still be off slightly. Have you taken all the plugs out? maybe that would help

I have a 12vdc computer fan running in my coolerbator with a 9v adapter and when it's running you can hardly feel any air flow from it. When I open my cooler I can feel heat coming out, and everything is warm to the touch.

is it a 1588?if so reset it and you should be good to go


When my power goes out amd it automatically resets, I need to readjust my 1588 down a bit. Reset does not put mine back to the temperature I need. The default is obvioulsy set a tad high. I think each one can be a little bit different. Like a thermometer, they need to be calibrated.
