Question on cabinet humidor

Here are the facts---I've had a Vigilant Guardian 1500 cabinet humidor for about 7 years now, and for whatever reason, i finally decided to test the humidity levels in various parts with hygrometers. The cabinet has one remote sensor, located about 2/3rds of the way towards the top. Also, the cabinet has no fans, (other than the fans at the bottom that blow humidifed air from the water container). The humidor has a digital set-point system, currently set to 66%, and reading 70%. Humidity seems to be high in the cabinet, notwithstanding that the cabinet is located in a room with 55% RH (this could be b/c i've added approx 15 boxes of new cigars in the last month). Testing with two new Diamond Crown hygrometers, the RH in the cabinet is all over the place!! As high as 79% in some areas, and as low as 61% in some areas. The cabinet is PACKED with boxes, almost no space at all for air to circulate. Thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Eric
