Looks to me like your humidity mabe was way to low. Get a digital reader from walmart or somplace and check it. It may need to be calibrated.

I was thinking if chick pipped and was right where the fan was blowing might have dried membrane before he could zip.

In that incubator the fan is no place neer the hatching tray. There's a tray on the bottom for hatching and 3 above it that Auto turn.
