The shaking incubator has comprehensive functions and is widely used, but occasionally some malfunctions may affect the normal use of users. Synthesizes various information, summarizes the common failures of the instrument and the solutions. Share with you here. 

1. The shaking incubator cannot operate normally?

  1. Check whether the power indicator light is on. If it is not on, it may be caused by power failure, poor contact, damaged fuse, etc.

  2. If the power indicator is normal, check whether the controller of the incubator is normally turned on and whether the speed parameter is set.

2. Abnormal cooling when the instrument is running?

  1. If the instrument is not refrigerated, check whether the compressor is damaged and the function is abnormal.

  2. When the compressor is damaged and used again after repair or replacement, the instrument can be set to open mode. The compressor in the open mode is always in working condition, and the cooling effect is better, and it can be effectively maintained.

  3. If it is a single-mode work, if you want the compressor to work, you must lower the box temperature below room temperature; if cooling is required, in order to ensure the normal operation of the compressor, the set temperature should be at least 5 degrees Celsius lower than the room temperature.

  4. If the temperature in the box fluctuates significantly during the operation of the instrument, it may be caused by frequent opening and closing of the box door. In this case, the compressor will start frequently, which will shorten its service life in the long run. Try to avoid opening and closing the door frequently during use.

3. The temperature is abnormal when the instrument is running?

  1. It may be that the arrangement of the shaker bottles is too dense, resulting in poor circulation of the circulation vents. The position of the shaker bottles should be adjusted in time to make them evenly and symmetrically distributed.

  2. It may be due to long-term use of long light, the heat conduction of the bulb causes uneven temperature.

  3. Check the cabinet of the instrument to see if the circulating fan is working normally.

  4. If the temperature in the box fluctuates too much, it may be caused by the wrong setting of the cooling mode. The refrigeration mode should be reset according to the instructions.

  5. The instrument cannot control the temperature normally. Check whether the temperature control switch is turned on. If it is turned on, then check whether there is a digital display on the temperature controller and whether the temperature control setting is correct.

  6.  If the instrument cannot be heated normally, it may be caused by damage to the temperature controller or damage to the heating tube. Deal with them in time after investigation one by one.

  7. If the measured temperature is high, it may be caused by the start-up temperature is too high. You can click the cooling button or open the ventilation holes of the instrument.

4. What should you do if there is a sound in the shaking incubator?

  1. First check whether the placement of the machine is flat;

  2. The abnormal sound of the shaking incubator usually comes from the oscillation part;


  3. because the oscillation part of the incubator will inevitably be worn out during long-term operation, so it will cause abnormal sound. When checking the oscillation part of the incubator, adjust the oscillation speed to a slow speed and carefully observe where the sound comes from. If it is a bearing problem, just add a little lubricant to the bearing. If the noise has not been resolved, please contact the manufacturer in time.


5. What should I do if there is no display after booting?

  1. Check whether the power supply is connected;

  2. Poor contact of the power socket;

  3. The fuse is damaged, check the voltage of the power socket, check whether the socket is in reliable contact, and replace the fuse with the same specification.

6.  What should you do if there is a display when the power is turned on but the shaking board does not rotate or the oscillation is unstable?

  1. Check if there is any foreign matter stuck at the bottom of the shaking plateform;

  2. Check whether the belt is damaged;

  3. Check whether the motor and control circuit are faulty; if there is any fault, please contact the manufacturer in time to replace the belt and motor of the same specification and repair it.
