I have seen many dealers selling in the USA but they are going with a warranty that is generally not the best.  They require you to send the incubator back or the damaged parts back before you get a part on the road.
I am from Canada and we sell various models including large commercial units.  Our warranty is 100 % of parts and including a full refund up to 12 months on small incubators.

We are not a dealer but a supplier that provides mentoring for beginners and all parts and service is done at our facility.   So watch when you buy as many traders buy factory over runs or old models for mass selling.

You can look at our web page.  We are planning on selling onto the USA later this year but presently are over ran in Canada.

Read our info  at  www.svendirect.com  .      By the way if there is no heat it can be the settings on some or the element is not working.  On all ours we have settings that can be
                                                                 very easily changed due to the way the computer works.   You can send me a picture and I will help you get it going.

Thanks for your quick response. It's a 48 egg incubator just like in the pics. My husband took it apart and metered the unit. Everything works but the heating element. Which was working just fine when I unplugged it last. I bought it from Amazon (lots of Chinese writing in manual), which I thought was a good thing, for my daughter at Christmas. Right now we hung a heat lamp above it and had actually stabilized at 38.3 C. We were going to look into the heating element posted in this thread to get us through this batch. I will definitely check out what you have. Hatching eggs has become addicting for the whole family.

We bought the heating elements from three link in this thread with no problems. It probably took 2 weeks to get it in the mail. My husband has been busy so I have just been hatching out chicks with the heat lamp above it. Last night he finally installed the new heating element and it's working perfectly. He cut some Styrofoam to put around out so that this heating element lasts a little longer. I'll keep you updated.

Other than the heating element, this thing is a Boss at hatching eggs. I'm part of a WNY Chicken Facebook group and many people have a lower hatch rate than I do. Mostly the difference is home made, still air vs an incubator with forced air and an egg turner. I bought this incubator for $65 + $8 in two new heating elements. Thus far, I'm making things work on a low budget.
