PLEASE HELP Im on day 20 of incubating my chickens one pipped and fully hatched with a few hours and none of the others have pipped yet altho i have seen the eggs wiggle a little bit . I was doing some reading and it says that you shouldnt turn the eggs in the last 3 days of incubation but mine has an automatic turner that i dont no how to stop! Will this effect my hatches in any way ? If so is there anything i can do to fix/ help them ?

you should be able to remove the turner, I have the Janoel 12 and mine has a little black tray that I just take out on day 18 along with the top tray that it slides on..

I think he forgot to take it out and it is now turning and he's afraid to take out the turning tray. I'd say whatever you decide, take them out or just leave them in is fine. One time I forgot to shut off the turning tray because a chick hatched early and he had no problem with it.

There must be a way to stop the turner. There should be a switch or plug or something.
Is there a way to remove it?
What brand and model is the incubator.
They are moving into hatching position the last couple days so shouldn't turn but they could also get a leg stuck in the turner.
Yes there probably is a way to do it but iv only got a no name incubator my dad gave as a gift it didnt come with a user manuel and i cant fine one online for it ... What would be my best option if i was to try and stop the turner would having yhe incubater open affect my hatches even more ? Im so confused lol

There are many folks here who have used that type of incubator or similar, maybe they can help you get an online manual. With that said, I would just leave it alone since you are unsure of what to do..... maybe with that incubator the only way to stop it from turning is to take out the egg trays?? I've no clue as I've never used that incubator, perhaps those that have used it before can chime in.

I'd leave well enough alone. Opening the incubator is definitely a bad idea.
The only way a chick can get stuck if the turner moves slowly is if it falls asleep on it.
