This short blog post is a step-by-step guide explaining how to replace the THv4 Sensor in the Rcom King Suro 20 Max egg incubator. The Thv4 sensor is the incubator's temperature and humidity sensor, the part that detects the tiniest of environmental changes inside the unit and relays that information to the control board.
If you see an ERR01 error code on the Rcom King Suro, it means that the sensor is at fault and will most likely need replacing. Thankfully, the THv4 Sensor is very cheap and easy to replace.
We began stocking Rcom incubators in late 2015 and became the UK's exclusive Rcom Incubator distributer in early 2016. Whilst we can source parts for any machine purchased since then, it can prove difficult to source spare parts for older Rcom incubators; those purchased from previous UK resellers, or purchased from eBay. If we can help you, we most certainly will. So in this blog, we aim to answer all your questions regarding spare parts for older Rcom incubators.
If stored correctly, chicken eggs can be stored for up to 14 days before incubation. This is important as it means that you don’t have to rush your eggs into the incubator, giving you time to build-up a clutch of eggs for maximum incubation success. Storing eggs first also allows you to fully prepare your incubator; so you can clean it thoroughly and check the temperature or humidity levels are just right.
Your chicks have hatched and you’re now left wondering, “how long should the chicks stay in the incubator before being moved to a brooder?”. This is one of the most common questions we get asked at The Incubator Shop.
The answer is quite straightforward. Chicks can typically stay in the incubator for 24 to 48 hours after the last chick has hatched.
Many people underestimate the importance of cleaning their incubator so it's easy to slip into bad habits. But you should treat an egg incubator like you would treat any other tool; with respect and care. Cleaning your incubator thoroughly will not only improve hatch rates, it will also hugely extend the useful-working life of the incubator, improve the health of hatchlings and reduce the risk of spreading any bacterial diseases that are hiding inside the incubator.
