    You will use the Temp called "out". That refers to the temperature where the probe is, and you will put the probe inside your bater, so use the "out" reading [probe reading] to monitor the temperature inside your bator.

    on the out mode is it suppose to fluctuate because its going 99.3 , 99.5 99. 8 , 100.1 then it repeats same order

    That is almost perfect. Do you have a fan in your bator? If You do your temp should run between 99.5 & 100.5. If no fan, have your probe at the top of your eggs and try to run @101*, +/- .5*
