    I have a old LG 5200 incubator can anyone tell me if I can buy a fan that will fit it. I think they took a 7200 but LG doesn't offer them anymore.[​IMG]

    You can actually just buy a computer fan and hook it up to an old cell phone charger and add a fan that way for much cheaper :)

    I don't have much room. It needs a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 to fit. I have a computer fan but it's 4 1/2x 4 1/2 ins.

    You could buy a smaller one - I have an ancient LG and that's how I added a fan. They're only about $5 on Amazon.

    Could you add a picture of how you mounted it?

    Yep! I'll pull it out of storage tomorrow and take a picture. I used cardboard to make a little mounting area and glued it in.

    Thanks that will help me see how to mount it next to the thermostat wafer. It must be a tight fit.
