    I don't know anything about the type of incubator you are using. BUT, I do know something about electrical wiring & Pumps so I can give you some general help or suggestions.

    BYW - The incubator should be OFF before you try checking any of these to prevent getting shocked.
    Can you see the impeller? Can you turn it by hand? It could be stuck or have something jammed in the impeller. If it's stuck, sometimes just turning it will help free it up,
    Can you trace the wires back to its connection? The wires might be just black & white, but they also might be stripped, which would be helpful in following them back It would be the best way of finding an re-set button. or to make sure there is a good connection.
    Is there a "in-line" fuse somewhere along the wires that might be blown?
