    Sorry about my first post being a desperation plea for help. I just purchased a used 1588 Genesis Hova Bator. When I originally picked it up I didn't notice it was missing the power supply. I just picked up a power supply that the seller "believes" is the correct supply. It was used once about 4-5 years ago and then stored. I want to confirm this supply she gave me is correct. Here's my question, or plea. Can someone that has a 1588 please look at the Input and Output specifications on your power supply/transformer and let me know what it reads. A picture of the transformer and the end that connects to the incubator would be great. I've called GQF and they weren't very helpful. I just don't want to fry my incubator!

    Here's what mine says:
    INPUT AC~120V 60Hz 43.0W
    OUTPUT:DC 12V 2500mA

    It's rather large. GQF did mention the older models were bulky.
    5 inches long 3.5 inches wide, 3 inches tall.

    Thank you in advance,

    Output: 12V=3000mA

    Feel free to PM me should you have any questions.
    Good Luck My Friend

    Those specs are pretty close to what I have. I plugged it in tonight and it's been on for about 2 hours and appears to be fine.
    Thank you for your quick response!
