Anyone have a solution. please HELP whah! I have my turkey eggs and chicken eggs in there with some more on the way. CRAP!!! Pinky

For now I would hand turn them until you can get some help with the trays. Can you manually turn the trays?

Sounds like something has gone in the turning motor or gears slipping?

I fixed it but I thought I'd leave my post in case it happens to someone else. Thank God my Dad was an Engineer and I know my way around tools. The back arm was entangled around the turning unit. Had to remove the top, then remove the plastic plate, remove the entangled arm, hammered it straight and reinstalled it... seems okay. I hope my eggs are okay, they were out for about an hour.

So glad you got it sorted! Your eggs should be fine with the cool down. I set mine to cool for an hour a day on my Brinsea octagon. Studies show it replicates the mother leaving the nest when she goes to do her business, eat and drink.

Good luck with your eggs :)
