Rcom problem

I have an rcom king suro , and am half way through a hatch. At the start I had a hard time trying to calibrate the inci to the temp of an independent temp/ hygrometer I have inside . Once I did it held the temp perfectly. Last night I candled and everything going good, had two empty eggs but all others alive and well. After closing the Incubator it wouldnít get back to the calibrated temp so I had to start from scratch again, anyone any suggestions ?

You should always wait 24 hours before checking temp after opening the incubator.
At least that's what I do, it takes at least that long to return back to previous temperature.

Never had that problem with my old brinsea octagon, the temp was 2 degrees lower than digital readout, although I waited 2 hours before I recalibrated, holding steady since

I'm getting rid of rcom 20 digital incubator

Working but temp and humidity has to be recalibrated again, bought new in 2013 E300

Open to offers, as using broodies from now on
