Hello. I recently acquired a Napco 6300 from another laboratory. Unfortunately, it came with no manual. There are no indications as to how much water to fill the pans with. What would be the easiest way to fill them? I've tried tubing and a funnel, but it didn't work very well. In addition, I was also wondering what the difference between the primary and secondary temperature dials is? I'm trying to get it to 37 degrees Celsius, but it seems to be taking a long time.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Janet Saunders

Hi !  I too have just recently inherited a Narco 6300 incubator but have no idea how to begin to "service " it.  Have you been successful in using your incubator and would you be willing to help me by providing answers to my questions on how to use it?

Hi Janet & Diane,

I am currently travelling in the UK but will return home to France on Monday 10th Sept. I almost certainly have a Napco user manual available and will be able to e-mail it to you.

If you'd like to get a copy, then please send me your e-mail address; You'll find my contact details under my Profile.

Best regards,

You will have to fill the jacket with approx 40ltrs of distill water through the water in let port. You can use a small pump or use a resevoir above the equipment & try the gravity feed through a small tube. Once the jacket is full the water may over flow from the air vent or the RED LED in front panel will indicate insufficient water.

Do not switch on the incubator without water in the jacket. The water pan inside the chamber can be filled upto 1-2 ltrs of distill water & is to maintain humidity in the chamber.

The primary temp is the set temp say 37, the sec temp is the safety temp set above which the heater is cut off in case of uncontrolled overshoot of temp, this may be set at 38 or 39.

It will take approx an hour to reach the set temp & another 3-4 hrs to stabilize at set temp. The chamber temp can be monitored using a thermometer inside the chamber to check that it coincides with the set temp, this is to be checked after keeping the equipment ON over nite.

Hi all,

I've also inherited an old napco 6300 incubator. I was wondering if the manual was still available from anyone?
