Fly incubator breakdowns?!

We have been having a long standing problem with our incubators that we are
using for fly stocks.  Several have had problems with their heating/cooling
systems.  This seems to be due to build up of some kind of residue on the
heating/cooling(?) elements inside of the incubator.   We imagine that
maybe something in our fly food recipe (possibly propionic acid) collects
on and corrodes the metal elements.  Has anyone had similar problems?  any
