    Was given a free incubator - supposed to be in good working condition but no info on use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Plug it in. Reg light on lid should go on when you turn the dial or "stem" clockwise. There should be wells in the bottom of the incubator. Fill them with water. One shaped like a square and two straight lines. Don't overfill or you'll have water all over.
    Get a digital thermometer with a humidity feature and put it in the bator to see how the temp and hum is...
    Does it have a turner?

    It has a second red sticker on it that says forced air keep at 99.5 - does this mean it actually isn't a still airincubator? It does have a turner. I hadn't planned to do this but when someone gives you a free incubator it kind of seems like you are supposed to use it.

  5. Maybe not... Does it have a fan in it? Like a small one?

    There is a fan on the lid where the heating element is.

  9. Then yes, you have a Forced Air incubator and not a Still Air incubator [​IMG] Lucky you... I have a Still Air Little Giant and I'm not all that happy with it. LG's aren't supposed to be great, but the Forced Air is supposed to be the better model.
