Is this normal for a Hova-Bator or is mine broken?

I have had my Hova-bator running for about a week now and not once has it gotten to 37.5. The first three days I could not get it below 39 degrees. I had the wafer thing twisted down as far as it could. And now it wont go above 35. I keep turning/twisting it up until the light turns on, leave it a few hours, then come back and its STILL below 35. \
Whats going on? is it broken or and I doing something wrong?

But it is brand new. This is the first time its been used.
Is it possible for a wafer thermostat to die? I didn't think it was. I'm an electronic thermostat kinda person. Can you tell

we picked it up though from the warehouse. which the people were not happy about. I rang the place and they don't open again until the 18th. So I'll have to wait.
Is the genesis incubator thermostat wafer or electronic?
