    Are there eggs in it? Or is it empty and you just need to know how to fix it? You can fix by just adding a new fan, It is just a computer fan.

    Go to a pc shop, electronics shop or ask around. Maybe one of your friend have one. For some reason most of my friends have one or 2 or a small pile of those little fans laying around. I'd mail you a couple, but it'll take too long [​IMG]

    I unscrewed one side of the fan and let it hang a bit in the bator, and it started running instead of grinding, so at least till this is over it should be ok! Just bought the pcs of crap it SHOULD be working!!! UGGGGG !!!! DO NOT PURCHASE this bator!! spend the extra for a better one!!! [​IMG]

    I know this is an old thread but my cat unplugged my incubator and I yelled at the cat then plugged it back in and now the fan has stopped working. I can see its moving a Lil bit but that's all its doing. I'm really worried about the eggs since they are on day 18. Where exactly did u poke it? I tried looking around but I couldn't really see anything except that the fan was moving a Lil bit. I actually googled it but all that really came up was the link to this and places to buy incubators.
