    This was my father in laws who unfortunately is gone now. I'd like to start putting it to use! Only the kids lost the box and I have no idea what model it is. I believe it is a Hova Bator [​IMG]

    Would love to know the model so that I can start doing some research on how to get it up and going!

    TIA

    I’d contact GQF and ask them. GQF makes Hovabators and should be able to tell by a photo if it is one of theirs. I have a 1588 and there is nothing in it that indicates make or model.

    So they got back to me right away! Apparently it's a 1602N !

    Now how would I go about installing a fan kit for this thing? Any ideas?

    The top looks like this but I have to move the wafer?

    :thumbsup It worked!

    Sorry I can't help you with that question, no experience. You might start another thread in this section with a title mentioning installing a fan in a 1602N. That might get the attention of people that have done it.
