    Why would you want to put silica gel in the first place? Defeats the purpose of a dry cabinet.

    Im a user of DB36 as well. As usual, just open the door let the RH goes back to room RH. Turn knob to around 10-11 o'clock. Then let RH settles before u start making minor adjustment. It takes around a day to have the RH stable.

    This is what i have done~
    Example:
    1. Open Door Reset to Room RH
    2. Turn Knob to 11 o'clock
    3. Wait for 4-6 hours
    4a. If RH goes lower than 45, adjust clockwise slightly~
    4b. RH is above 60 adjust anti-clockwise slightly
    4c. If RH is around 50-55
    5. Last step is to leave the cabinet the next day to confirm reading as it will still further drop by a few RH

    Hope this helps~

    Can I know when you turn the knob to the red sector, the green led will light up but will go off when you release your the knob (meaning your take your hand away from the knob).
    My 50L Digi Cabi is like that, is something wrong?

    For me, the green led will light up only if i left my knob at red sector which will give very low RH values. The green led will light up even if my hand stays away from the knob.

    So i left it around green sector where my knob's led will not led up at all.

    So for your case, why don u call digi hub and clarify~ No harm calling them~

    if u really kiasu like mad, den put silica packs inside, but doesnt really help much. You open the bag a few times all saturated liaox.

    if not planning to get anymore lenses n accessories, get a dry box. i think $20 liddat.
    just simply dump the camera inside, close the box. that's all
