    I don't have to ever TOUCH the thing and the temperature just keeps getting lower and lower! Everytime I turn it up it still goes lower!

    I am here with you on that. I don't know what the problem is. I had the incubator on for a few days before I put my eggs in and it was holding steady. Now, it is all over the place. It keeps getting lower, and I just keep turning it back up. It is driving me insane!

    What kind of incubator have you got? some are more affected by the house temps than others, is there a swing in temps where you are at the mo? I would put the incubator in a more stable part of the house.
