    Anybody have any good websites for troubleshooting a sportsman incubator? I cleaned up my incubator, got everything going well, was holding temp good. I put the eggs, like I do every year, give it two days was going to start the turner. And the turner is not turning! Not on manual or auto. I don't know if it's the toggle switch, the motor, or if there's some fuse. I've never worked on the incubators, I just cleaned them and put eggs in them every year.

    And where is a good place to get motors and toggle switches? Or is it possible it is turner timer motor? There are alot of parts listed for the turner.

    if it doesn't turn on manual or automatic then that eliminates a bad toggle switch 99% of the time as it's two separate contact points (you can jump the switch with a wire just to be sure) and it's your turner motor (not to be confused with the timer motor).
