    I cant get the humidity to come down. I have the bator full. Plastic wrap covering the channels and both plugs pulled. It is still at 64%. What else can i do?
  2. I prop open one of the top veiwing windows on top of my incubator. Pull the window up and put slide a pencil into the crack to keep the window from falling.

    Reduce the room humidity

    Check your meter.

    Don't open the incubator more than the vents allow, the heater isn't good enough to maintain temp. If your humidity readings are accurate, and the water channels empty, you may need to run a dehumdifier in the room.
