    Is it already put together? You just set it on the screen with the motor in the rear of the bator and put the cord through the hole that goes out the center rear. (There should be an indentation in the lid and on the base which forms the hole when you put them together). You may need to expand the hole a little; use a pencil and just gently push down on the styrofoam until the hole is big enough for the cord. Good luck!!

    Are the trays not put in? If not, you just do tiral and error to get them to sit next to each other evenly. [​IMG]

    Well I have got it put togeather, as far as the egg cups go but I didn't see a hole for the cord.

    So I have looked and there is no hole or anywhere to run the cord through...
    Does anyone suggest making a hole???

    There should be a slight indent in the lid and in the base that you need to make bigger to fit the cord. If there isn't, then use a pencil and push down on the styrofoam to make it big enough for the cord to fit.

    Quote:Yup on the back side of your bator there is an indentation on the bottom half for the cord to set in. Where the bottom and top fit together.

    There is no hole, it's just a groove in the styrofoam.
