Brinsea Incubator heat problem

Hi All,
looking for a bit of help and suggestions regarding older type Brinsea Octagon 40 DX , has been working with no problems last year but i put in a batch of eggs this week and i just cant get the temp down under 110 degrees , have tried adjusting it by moving the red red button but to no avail, very frustrating as everything else is working ok, would placing it in a colder environment help ?, any suggestions you have i will take on board , aware shes an older machine but had been working perfectly without a hitch .

Sounds like the thermostat has gone. Easy to replace. Just check first that both fans are working,
Parts in stock. Give us a call.
