Retain Polystyrene Packaging for insulation
When opening, carefully remove incubator - ensuring not to break the polystyrene.
Set up the incubator as instructed and place it inside of the polystyrene – you may need to cut holes for the power cable and access to the display panel.
This will help reduce the likelihood of cold spots inside of the incubator as well as allow ensure the heater is not working overtime and prolong the life of the heating element.
A blanket or several towels may be used effectively if polystyrene is undesirable or damaged.
Pre-Run unit and Calibrate Temperature
Set up the unit and have it run for some time. Once the set temperature has been reached, place a separate calibrated thermometer roughly in the same position as the built-in temperature sensor inside the unit.
If the thermometer and unit do not match, follow the included instructions relating to calibration.
Continue to run the unit with thermometer for several more hours to ensure calibration is correct and the unit is running without issue. You may need to adjust calibration a few times to get it correct.
If possible – keep a calibrated thermometer inside of the unit as a backup temperature gage.
There may be gaps around the edge inside the incubator. To prevent chicks from getting stuck in these gaps place material or hand towels around the edges.
To lower the chance of newborn chicks developing leg issues, at lockdown it is best to place a non-slip mat or material on the incubator floor under the eggs.
Ensure the unit is unplugged before cleaning. The flooring inside can be unscrewed and removed for easier cleaning. Do not be afraid to wet the components inside of the base section of the unit.
The hole where wires enter the front panel (as shown in image below) can also be flushed with water – this hole does not lead directly to the important components and has been designed to allow water to enter in and drain through the base – just ensure the base is kept upright to allow any water to drain through the bottom (if placed upside down or leant forward water may affect the important components).
Allow to dry thoroughly before plugging back in.
Check under the base every few cleans. Ensuring the unit is dry - flip the base over, directly below the hole pictured above is a small cover that can be removed using a flathead screwdriver. Remove the cover and brush out any debris. Do not use water as it may enter the front panel from this area.
