    I have a Brower Tophatch Incubator that will shoot up for no reason to 102-104 degrees.
    This model does not have a wafer. I keep it in a draft free and window free spare bathroom.
    Any ideas????????

    If it's not caused by room temp changes, then you're probably getting spikes in your electricity. Is your bator plugged into a surge protector?
