    I bought an LG egg turner 2 weeks ago and for the last cuople of days it keeps getting stuck on one side. Has anyone else experienced this and if so is there a way to fix it. I currently have 20 eggs in the bator.

    If you have only had it 2 weeks I would take it back before it dies on you.

    I may try but I lost the reciept. I bought it at tractor Supply do you think they would exchange it without a reciept.

    mine did the same thing right out of the box i looked at it. it had some flashing on the edges left over form the mold i guess. i took my knife scraped the flash off work great then.
     
  5. My turner died after only a few hatches. It had the same problem with the injection molding and finally wore the motor out.

    I took it back to the feed store and they replaced the motor. Since then I have scraped off the part that was causing the problem and it is working. I still hate the thing though. All my money goes to the animals I already have, so no new bator this spring.
