    I was just setting my Brower Top Hatch to start it for a batch of D'Uccles and Call Duck eggs I have coming this week and it wouldnt come on-PANIC! Ok I tell myself calm down, get on their website and figure it out. After 10 min of reading I found out that it has a fuse and there is a spare that they taped in the inside-ok now let me figure out how to take this thing apart lol. Of coarse I just took out every screw I could find on it, find the fuse, look at it-yes totally blown-yeah! Now I have a small problem, I didnt pay attention close enough of where everything went of coarse-so I am trying to look at the diagrams that are extended out pointing which way everything goes [​IMG]. After 30 min success! Plug it in and we have light and a fan YIPPIE [​IMG] -glad I know that I need to keep spare fuses on hand along with bulbs, glad I didnt need any of this for the 1st 3 hatches I did this year. At least I know now how the whole thing goes together, works etc-Im so proud of myself [​IMG] now hopefully I will have babies soon [​IMG]

    The power of the Internet. I fixed my dishwasher (twice), computer monitor and laser printer with instructions found on the Internet! I even had to solder pieces into the monitor. It's amazing how empowering it can be.
  3. I had that happen to me in Jan 2010 about a week after I set my eggs. Luckily I had a Hoova Bator incubator so I set it up and transferred the eggs while my husband looked up in my instruction sheet that came with the Brower, he found out how to fix it and proceeded to change the fuse. And back in the Brower went my eggs.
