    Just received my SPot CHeck Thermo... Can someone explain to me how to use it? It cam with no instructions. Battery is working. When I press 'on' I get an 'L' with a flashing fahrenheit symbol... How do I get a reading????

    ETA: Nevermind... I figured it out....

    It helps if you keep the probe in the incubator. I stick mine through a vent hole and tape it so it stays at egg level. Then when you turn it on, it will show a temp (the last recorded temp), go to an L, then give you the current temp.
