    The bator I am using for my Incubator is a Hova-bator 2362N. I am wondering if I buy one of the pre-set therostats from GQF (the ones that come in th 1588) if it would work??? Anyone have any ideas?

    I will continue to use my other bator for my hatcher.

    ::SIGH:: I should have just purchased the 1588 to begin with!!!!!

    Quote:I don't think it would work. The 1588 uses a 12 transformer to drop the voltage for the Hova-Bator. That's why you can run them off a car cigarette lighter. The 2362N appears to be straight 120 volt hook up. The heating element looks different, too. The 1588 has a low voltage element that is wrapped around the fan housing, not the one that looks like an electric oven element. I think you're out of luck on this one. [​IMG]
