    I have a Genesis 1588. Not the new model with the temp and hygrometer gauage

    This past hatch it ran high but I was ok with that. 100.2-4 and things were ok. Except near the end when temp dropped to 99.3-4.

    I just set things up again and the temp is 99.3. Any thoughts on that?

    I've toggled it up a notch and am waiting to see where things go.

    The digital has new batteries, so that should be good. Everything is the same as other hatches.

    Anyone else here have experience with the Genesis 1588?

    Heating element? I had a still air do that, I think the heating elements are similar. It was an easy fix, but I had to order a piece. Good Luck!

    The 1588 has a setting mechanism to adjust the temp. I did up it a notch and it's now at 100* 0 which is acceptable. According to my reading a temp of 100.0* is ok.

    So I think I'm good now. Thanks for the advice.

    Though considering what you mention it might be good to have replacement parts on hand. One can never know when these things might go.
