The incubator is in a warm house, so they will not chill. Equally have you watched a hen incubate eggs? She leaves them every day, sometimes twice, so the odd opening of the incubator does no harm if you're quick, the humidity in the air is down for maybe 2 minutes, this isn't enough for the humidity in the egg to drop.
I've assisted plenty who were in funny positions, some had splay legs, some had curled toes, all perfectly fixable issues and most survived to adulthood.
Eggs were stopped turning on day 14 and they were all positioned pointy end down, hence why the air bubble formed at the right end, but unfortunately the chick decided to go the other way up.
