Replacement controller with express postage included
Before placing your order, if your controller is fairly new, check that the failure is not caused through `Fatigue' from over-voltage.
Check your working voltage, and check again at midday on a sunny day.
To export its product, the equipment of private solar vendors must increase its voltage to a value higher than what is on the lines outside. Where there’s a cluster of rooftop solar, this automatic bidding can increase the midday voltage locally. In addition, it’s been reported that unscrupulous persons willfully escalated their “winning bids” to over 270 VAC.
You just need a cheap digital multi-meter, set on 500 VAC.
In a house wall socket switched off, you put the black probe in the earth slot and the red probe in the active slot.
It doesn’t matter if you put the red probe in the wrong slot first up and get a null.
That would be the neutral. Switch off, change the red probe to the other slot and switch on again.
See if the meter registers between 230 and 240 volts.
If it’s seriously out of spec, contact your energy provider and they are obliged to rectify it.
Over-voltage is damaging.
Your new controller, as are all the incubator's electrical components, is running continuously in a hot environment. The Excess voltage is absorbed as Heat inside the components and shortens service life.
Note that Greatlander incubators are made with NON-FLAMMABLE Colourbond Cold-Room Panels
In no case can damage spread beyond the component or cause a fire risk
