HI!
I've successfully used my Genesis 1588 for three years. This time, the windows were fogged up (humidity at 52%) and most of the time I would have to pressdown on the space above the temp/humidity to move enough of the foggy

moisture to see the gauge. Is the seal going bad? What to do? I need to set another clutch next week...
Thanks!

I have had that happen with 2 of my 6 Hova-Bators. Mine are the exact same models. Send them right back after the hatch. That’s what I’d did.

Yes, but I've probably done 12 hatches! I see you can buy the replacement parts, or juct buy a new "top". Has anyone done that?

You could try to reseal it with silicone. If that fails, they do sell parts to repair it. Interesting to know as it is what I use as well.

Since it's still running with 2 goose eggs in it, I just took a look. I think it's the seal around the glass window. Could I just remove the window, clear both sides, and use silicon to re-caulk/re-stick it?
