How do I control the aeration in the HOTBIN

Can I increase or decrease aeration levels in the HOTBIN?
The positioning of the air valve controls aeration in the HOTBIN.
If the internal HOTBIN temperature is below 40°c - close the valve by pushing down on the half closest the close arrow until it is only open 2mm. (Note the valve should not completely close, ie lay flat . Never force it fully closed - the HOTBIN will not work).
If the internal HOTBIN temperature is above 70°c - open the valve by pushing down on the half closest the open arrow. (It will normally only take a couple of hours to cool back below 60°c).
