    I just got a RX2 Incubator
    just came fro pick it up and tested , when I was testing it on eof the thermometers broke, the one to read the humidity.

    do you guys know if I cn replace it with any mercury thermometer?

    I went to Lyons Web page and the thermometer is not posted on the replacement parts.

    any idea guys

    thank you

    The thermometer part # 2LT, email them or call them and ask if they have it in stock.

    The thermometer reads humidity, the hygrometer is humidity. Go to walmart and buy one of the digital thermometer/hygrometers. It will be a lot cheaper than ordering something...

    Quote:It would be cheaper, but if that one from Wal-mart gets caught in the turning tray..[​IMG] [​IMG] Then your talking alot more money for rack..turner for the RX2. RX2 doesn't have much room to play with.

    Couldn't you attach it to something that is too big to fall between the racks?

    The reason I wanted to order the thermometer is bevause I am asuming is more acurate than anything else.
    Please correct me if Im wrong.

    Also why are this incubators so expensive?

    They cost more than some of the sportmans

    Quote:Yes, It will be more accurate than the cheapo at Wal-mart. I have 2 of the older Roll-X and they are extremely worth every penny...they will hatch anything !!! They are much better than the Sportsman. Quality cost more, they are very reliable incubators.
