    I had one stuck to the turner for no reason I could discern... I spritzed it with water around the base and it loosened up.

    How is it stuck? It it wedged between the turner rows or did something on the shell glue it to the turner??? I think you have to remove the turner so I would try to move the rows a little if it is wedged in or use a wet cloth to try to loosen up whatever glued it if that is the problem.

    Glad the broken egg didn't have a chick in it.
