    I got the incubator set up as per the chic chick bator plans. I wired it wrong twice. When I went to plug it in it sparked so I finally ended up getting it correct. It's working great now minus the thermostat kicking on. I have it metal side out mounted close to the light for best temp controll. It's getting up to 117 and still not kicking on. I now have it turned down to the 90 mark. The wireing is this: From brass light screw -> smooth #1 and ribbed #2.

    Any ideas? I only just touched the plug in when it sparked so I really wouldn't think it's damaged?

    TIA!
