Troubleshooting the Brinsea EcoGlow chick brooder

troubleshooting the EcoGlow brooder

The bad news is that our Brinsea EcoGlow chick Brooder we love so much stopped working. It's getting power but the indicator light blinks instead of being a steady glow and there's no heat.

The good news is we can send it back to Brinsea to be repaired. How much will it cost? Anna forgot to ask and the lady didn't say. I put it in the mail today with a return authorization number, so I guess we'll find out sometime next week.

We're debating ordering a second EcoGlow chick brooder to make sure we have one ready to go in 3 weeks for our first chicks of 2013 and to have a back up in case we want to increase our hatching numbers in the future.

Hi Mark,

Troubleshooting electrical stuff isn't too hard.

Might be best if you got me or someone else's on the phone as you work through what is going on.
