    I turned it on last night because I have a staggered hatch going and was supposed to lock down my Serama eggs tonight in it and was going to use it as my hatcher. Well when I plugged it in last night it was fine, but noticed today that it's quiet and the fan isn't going! The built in thermometer reads around only 90 degrees, my 2nd one reads 83 on the floor, so it's not warm enough.

    Anybody have this happen and have a quick fix? I'll be calling Brinsea tomorrow but I don't know if they will be able to help me in time. [​IMG]

    There should be a square or rectangular shapped clampy thing that connects the fan to the lines that carry the power inside the to the heat element. You need to see if you push on it or crimp it harder because it might not be making contact.

    OK, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for......do I need to take it apart at all to get to it?

    It should be on the top portion of the unit.
