    ive read about people having successfully hatch after 2 days of no heat, so you might still have a chance. hopefully someone more experienced will chime in.

    A day without turning WILL NOT hurt them at all. Relax.

    Just saw this post or I would have gave an answer sooner.
    I do this nearly every time that I stop the turner to candle. I
    myself have not had any problems after leaving the turner off
    overnight or a little longer.
    I've just had to start putting a sticky note on the door of the
    incubator to remind myself to turn the turner back on.
    Oh, I have had some that did not hatch but I don't think it would be
    because of the turner.
