    My sportsman incubator quit turning the egg trays! When I flip the switch it turns on. But the arm doesn't move. It feels like maybe a gear is striped out. Anyone ever have this problem?

    I had to replace the drive motor in all 3 of my incubators. Thank you lightning. They are pretty easy to change if you take the top and back off. Once you get the back off, you can tell if the motor is turning or not. The motor shaft fits into a small metal arm and is held on by a small set screw.
