    Default Dry Box Problem

    Hi bros,

    i have a worrying problem : My drybox reading (analogue hydrometer) is always move between 50 - 70% even i did not open the box.. ie. it can be 70% in the morning then to 60% and sometimes when i open the box, it dropped to 50%...up and down.

    I also have some silica gel inside and the switch is on max. so dun understand why the reading is still so high.

    Shld I change a new box since its with me at least 3-4 yrs already? or wat shld i do??

    Hmm... by right that should be happening.
    also have you check whether your hydrometer is working fine?

    or maybe you can get a digital hydrometer to measure it and see if your dry-cabi or your analogue hydrometer is faulty.

    i'm sure most shop which sells dry-cabi do also sell hydrometer. (But i'm not sure because I didn;t get it before too)

    If you place the digital hydrometer together with your analogue hydrometer & their readings differs too much. Then there could be your analogue hydrometer faulty.
    If their reading are around the same & the reading still goes up & down abnormally. then it's your dry-cabi's problem.

    Your dry cab is gone case. If it is under warranty (my dry cab has 5 year warranty), get it repaired. If not, get a new one.

    Thanks all!

    I found out there is really a problem with my dry-cabinet, most likely the condensing/drying unit at the back.
    Since it's more than 5-6 yrs old, i have bought myself a new DigiCabi..
