    My genesis 1588 huvabator has an egg turner and about every 5 mins the turner clicks loud. Does yours? It's in my room and keeping me up!!

    Not, mine doesn't. I have one in my genesis 1588, the only sound I hear is the fan.

    I have two and the only time I've ever heard noise from one is when I missed putting a pin back in after cleaning.

    Yes mine does the same thing, I thought it might be because some of the eggs barely fit in and it was over loaded,,,
