    I have a sportsman 1202 that has an electric thermostat with a wafer thermostat back up. Well from my experience they didn't make this model with an electric thermostat so whoever we bought it from rigged this up. The problem is that the electric thermostat isn't heating and the bator is running off the secondary wafer. I bought a new wafer thermostat assembly yesterday to change it back to dual wafers and we cannot get this thing to work. Now that the electric thermostat is off, the secondary one won't even heat. HELP ME PLEASE before I scream!!!!

    Brian we have looked and looked at that wiring diagram. The problem we have is that there is an extra wire off the electric thermostat that we cannot figure out what to do with. There is a black, blue and white wire and all we need is 2 wires fot the wafer assembly. The black and white one has us confused, we should have two blues.

    , check this page out and see if urs is like that. I checked my incubator and i have the electronic thermostat and if u need help. I can TRY, but I did notice that the 2 wafer thermostats has 2 wires and 1 blue wire connects to the other 1 blue wire w/a cap. now the other 2nd wire should be connected to the powercord, NOW thats how it looks in the diagram.

    I hope this helps u out.
