    I don't know what type turner you have but the one I have in my Little Giant moves very slowly and the only way to really tell is to take note of the position and come back for a peek in a couple of hours. I think they switch every 4 hours from one side to the other, something like that. It is also very quiet so I don't notice any motor noise really. Hope this helps...

    It should only turn the eggs 4 or 4 times in a 24 hour period
    depending on the turner
