    My mom bought a USED LG still air incubator yesterday and she got the turner too.

    When she plugs the turner in, should it begin to move immediately or does it only move 2 or 3 times throughout the day or does it have to warm up or what?

    She says its not moving....do you think its broken?

    You will not see it move unless you sit there and watch it for a while. It turns 6 times a day continuously very slowly. I was wondering about one of mine once, and had to mark a piece of paper with an arrow showing which way it was turned the last time I looked!! I couldn't tell at all!

    Oh I hope that is the case then. I haven't seen it yet so i can't say, but she thought it wasn't moving.

    They move very slowly. Turn it on and come back in an hour or 2. If it is working, it will have moved.
