Fan air flow in 1588 Hovabator.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello!
So I had to replace the fan that was in my Hovabator 1588, and I couldn't remember if I should have the fan blowing the air directly on the eggs or up and subsequently around the incubator ? I currently installed it so that the air is blowing up and around, not directly on the eggs.

Is that right?

Thanks!!

Thank you! I got it! The fan needs to blow the air towards the cieling of the incubator and then down the sides is the correct position. Direct airflow on the eggs would creat hot spots, which is counter prouductive.

Thanks HatchCraft for answering me! lol.png

My Hova-Bator is an older one but I had to replace a fan and thermostat. My other thermostat was all over the place with the temperature.
