Hi. I purchased an older model Greatlander incubator, 3 tray model. It gets to about 10C above ambient temperature and won't get any higher. I've replaced the top element and the temp and humidity sensors and checked that the temperature is reading correctly. Not sure where to look next to get this unit running.

Thanks.
Dave.

Is he the guy that builds them? I've sent a message to greatlander through their website already.

I just felt the element and it's cold even though the heat lights are on and the temp displays 19C. The element was heating earlier as we watched the temp climb from 20C to 27C.
