    Is it still air or forced?

    Circulated air is good at 99.5-100. Still air better at 101-102 or so. Hope you have a great hatch!

    I think that if it has a fan, it is circulated/forced, if not, it's still.

    Your right. They must use the same box for different models now im see it says for the 1602N thermal air flow. What ever that means-what does that mean. Im so new. Sorry

    All you have to do is look inside and see if there is a fan or not.

    There will be a fan in the lid if it is forced air.

    Still air run at 101-102 at top of eggs.

    Forced air needs 99.5 anywhere, but check it at egg level.
