Where did you get the element from? It sounds like the element that you just purchased is not any good either. I would take it back and find one that does work. Sometimes it happens with several types of heating elements, even with newly purchased ones.
Its working i mean it gets hot to the touch, i'm curious if its not the wattage i would need for this bator, its a lil smaller than the original but not too bad, i might try rigging up some light bulbs in thier and see how that goes, thanks Rick
