I had that same one, till the heater or sensor or something went out. (day 18 of a hatch, no less!) But it can work. You may have to turn up the heat just a bit. I also wrapped mine in that thin, but effective, duct wrap. It helped the heater not work so hard. (I timed how fast it came on and went off, before and after!)
Check the arm sticking out of the turner motor. It should go from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock position. I had times where it would go just a little too far, and within a couple of weeks, it was stopping at 12 and 6 o'clock positions, leaving the turner in the same spot - flat.... Not good.
To fix it, you have to turn the unit off while the turner is in the middle of a move, when its in the proper position. Then turn it back on, and it will stay in sync.... for a while.
I'm going to try to insulate it. In the first picture, there's a small notch in the front where the insulation dips down, as well as the little green thing sticking out the top. What are those?
howdy Oz.......how's the merry old land of?
I cut some windows into my base, because it was gray. Couldn't see a dern thing going on inside. So the dips are around my homemade windows. (Super-glued a piece of a CD-jewel case)
The thing sticking out the top is a thermometer stuck down through one of the vent holes. Like the meat thermometer kind, but this one was one of hubby's hvac ones.
Easier just to say Hey Frogs!
