    Hova Bator 2362N owners: does the fan for air circulation run all the time, or only when the heat comes on?

    Mine runs only when the heat comes on, so I am wondering if it is wired correctly.

    I think I may have found the answer on my own... from what I gather, on the older 2362N (ones made after the year 2000), the fan only runs when the heating unit comes on, and on the newer 2362N, the fan runs all the time.

    Okay, I'm just having a post-fest with myself now!!! [​IMG]

    New question for those with the older pre-2001 2362N models: has anyone been able to safely rewire the fans so they run all the time? I don't want to go there unless you've done this safely and sucessfully and know what you're doing, because I sure don't!!!

    just follow the power supply cord to where all the wires meet, one wire from the fan will already be connected to one side of the power supply cord, just connect the other fan wire to the other side of the power supply cord. this bypasses the heating element, if you dont have wire connectors use electrical tape, just be sure they are secured tight
