    I thought I would get used to this, but it is really annoying. Do they all sound like this, or am I just lucky? How can a fan so small make such a wonderful noise? I have it in the master bathroom, because that is the room with the most constant temperature in the house. I hear it while I'm sleeping and keep having these nightmares of being at the dentist office. It might be better if the heater going off and on didn't change the tone. Gives it that sense of realisim. Will the chicks end up fearing the dentist as much as I do? Oh well, only 18 more nights to go. [​IMG]

    Hmm, mine just makes a humming sound. Try checking the screws. sometimes they work loose and the fan will be crooked and vibrate. Check under the lid and check to see if the little keeper rings on the screws are tight, sometimes they work loose and fall off.

    mine is pretty loud. i have the lg as a hatcher, right next to the 1588. when i have babies peeping, i have to turn it off for a minute so i can talk to the babies.

    I also have the 1588 and it just hums along. It's isolated in the spare bedroom and I only hear when I go into that room.
