    Every morning my new brinsea has updated wth how many days is left. Not so much this morning, it's been 9 days left for over 24 hours. Temp seems to be consistent (according to the incubator) and the eggs are still turning but the time left isn't updating.

    Anyone run into this? We're supposed to hatch next weekend and I'm hoping this isn't a sign that the incubator is going wonky. It's our first hatch with the Maxi II and I'm going to be disappointed if we've made it this far only to have the incubator go wonky this late.

    Okay, so not trying to be a jerk here, but are you sure it's a 9 and not an 8? Those calculator screens can malfunction sometimes or be difficult to read.
    If it STILL says 9 you might call Brinsea to see if they can help you. If you know what your hatch date is supposed to be you could try resetting the incubator to the correct amount of days remaining. If you're using the auto-turner it should still stop rotating eggs at two days regardless of how many it started with.
    Good luck to you!
