Recently bought a new Brinsea incubator. Set the eggs, all was perfect for 6 days. Then, went to check on the incubator and hear a weird sound and knew something wasn't right. The fan had broken, the motor of the fan more specifically. Has anyone ever had this happen? It still spun but only at maybe 10-20% of its usually speed. I was able to get a new unit in under 24 hours but am still somewhat concerned about eggs. Thankfully the heat and turner still worked fine, but without the fan the temp was registering 99.5 at top of incubator away from eggs so I know the eggs were slightly cooler than they would have liked to be for that time. I was also able to get Brinsea to send me another fan so I have a back-up for the future, still frustrating though.
