    I have this Incubator. I've read about adding a computer fan to it, but how exactly do I go about doing that?

    Thanks in advance!

    there is a great video on the incubator warehouse site

    i added one to my 1602N and it took about two minutes

    you're welcome.

    it was remarkably easy
    just make sure you watch the video first
    and gather all the tools you need
    so you're ready

    it took longer for me to separate
    the two wires than i thought it would

    and when i was ready to start i took
    off the lid of the 'bator, and replaced it
    with a piece of rigid insulation while
    i was installing the fan
    so the temperature didn't drop more
    than when i rotate the eggs

    Adding a fan to a still air is a good way to dramatically increase your hatches.
    Have fun!
