    Must be a way... is the thermostat the wafer style? Turning clockwise should be hotter. Counterclockwise cooler.. that be my guess

    That's what I thought but found out its backwards. The thermostat is round and looks like a pulley

    I think so it dropped down to 97° with 63H on it so eggs not in yet. Not sure if it would be good yet. I'm not sure. I don't want to put them in yet, because I don't think know I'm supposed to put them in until late I get it to stay at 99 at least right?
