    Well, found my bator today. Brinsea pro 20 with auto turner and humidity module. Have had it about 4 years, never used it. The stupid instructions weren't in the box. Why would I carefully pack it all up when we moved a few years ago and leave out the instructions!!! Just a bump in the road, just a bump in the road. I will get my eggs!

    You can often find operation instructions online for many things. Whenever my DH tries to change the time setting on the stove he always changes it to Sabbath mode and then I have to look up the instructions on-line (instruction books in this house disappear as if they were potato chips) to reset to the right time. LOL

    Good luck!

    Yup, gave it a little squirt and no more creak! I did end up ordering a new battery for the thermometer,new clips and evaporating pads. I can't wait!
