I too am having a very hard time getting the second tier to cure as well as the bottom tier. I have tried letting the batch cool longer in the pot and I always add the powdered milk to the batch. I have let the maker 'cook' for up to 12 hours; moved the jars from the top tier to the bottom and added more time- that is the only way I can get a double batch to cure properly. I really believe the maker doesn't have enough heat to reach the top tier properly. One may as well just make two seven jar batches separately. Very disappointed with this expensive add-on that really doesn't work as described.
I bought the Euro Cuisine yogurt maker and realized I needed more volume so I bought the top tier and extra jars to make 14 jars at a time. I've been doing this once a week for close to a year. I let my yogurt incubate for 9-10 hours (overnight). I did have an issue early on with the yogurt not setting but I realized I needed to let the culture sit in the cooled (110°F) pot of milk for longer before putting into the individual jars. I usually add the powdered culture to the pot, wait 5-10 minutes and stir for a full minute. It's a little trickier to make sure every little jar is cultured vs culturing in one big vat.
I purchased this at the same time I got the yogurt maker and I was very disappointed; the heat does not raise high enough to incubate this level (at least for me it didn't). After 10 hours the yogurt in this was still liquid and cool to the touch.
