    Has anyone ever had your Brinsea incubator make a funny noise? It appears to be working ok, but it sounds like it's revving ipfrom time to time like it's going to take flight[​IMG] If I move it around a bit it stops but then starts back up. Any thoughts?

    :/

    I'm afraid I've not had this happen to mine but it sounds like it could be a fan issue. Have you taken the guard cover off and checked that there is not something trapped? Also has it been getting to temp ok? Mine does sometimes ramp up a little bit with the noise when the thermostat kicks in to heat up.

    Yeah, definitely sounds like something stuck in the fan. I'd take it apart and have a look.
