    It's a brand new Hovabator 2362E and I've only done one hatch in it so far (seemed to work fine then). Cleaned it and stored it in it's box for 2 weeks, and when I plugged it in last night the heating element is not working at all. There's not much to it, but I'm not great with electronics, as far as I can tell it must be something wrong with the circuit board inside the thermostat box?

    I've called the manufacturer but they're not open weekends. I'm thinking I just got a bad one and will need to replace it, but was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with an incubator that is similar?

    Most incubator are built so cheap... all those electronic engineers. Think they know everything. .
