I agree....the temp./humidity balance takes a while to achieve with the moist air heating up. That being said 86 is low. I have never used bulbs in my bator so I am sorry not to be of much help with what to do but I would wait as suggested.

I put 2 bulbs or more depending on the size of the bator just in case one bulb burns out there is not a cold bator all day. one of my bators I use 2 40 watt bulbs the next one I use 2 75 watt bulbs my large bator ( small cabinet) I have 4 light sockets I am still working on getting the heat level right
