Water pump on rcom max 20

Hi I’ve just bought a rcom max 20 can anyone tell me if the water pump only runs when water is needed for the humidity and also I’ve left the high temp alarm at 2c and the low temp alarm at -3c is this right

     i havent had this version of rcom but i think the principals are the same - water should be in the tank throughout incubation and you need to top it up if it goes low . humidity will increase automatically in the last few days
    i didnt have a temperature alarm on mine so not sure about the temp sorry but its the figures used in the manufacturers manual -
    hope this helps

    If the water runs out/the power supply is interrupted, the incubator sounds an alarm and lights flash.
    Sounds as though your incubator is a more modern version, and the internet
