Using a LG still air and still have a week to get this tweaked.
My water wiggler is currently at 100.6, if I had eggs in the banter would this be a concern?

The wriggler should be at the same level as the eggs, and showing a temp very close to the internal egg temp.

Over 100F is a little high, esp. as *a little low* is generally safer than high.

I would make very small adjustments over a period of several hours and see if I could bring the wriggler temp. down to 99.5F

It's 99.5 now but the light is flickering, should I bump the knob a hair or leave it alone,

Thanks

Leave it alone.

Watch the temp over the next few hours, only alter the setting if it appears to be averaging high.

If the bator is empty the temps will fluctuate a lot more. Put 2 water bottles in
it to simulate the mass of 24 eggs.

A wiggler should fluctuate much at all.
