    The egg turner motor on about any of those type turners gets real warm---if this is what you are talking about. The 4250 usually has some serious problems with the built in meter----please do not trust them at all. Get another set of meters.

    I use the Accurite from WalMarts for about $8 but Its a little big. I also ordered several of the smaller temp/humidity from Incubator Warehouse. They fit in the smaller Styrofoam good.

    I have the farm innovator 4250 with turner and I found it to be off by 1 degree and 5% humidity. Took me forever to calibrate it because all three of my thermometers/hygros said something different. So frustrating when you have eggs needing to be set. I have burned myself on the hot metal of the turner, and I checked with the manufacturer and they said it's normal, along with the helicopter sound mine makes while plugged in.
