Dry house, albeit have two april aire humidifiers

The reason you can not run your humidifier while the blower is off, is because all the humidity would condense almost immediately and rot out your duct work. If you find that the humidity provided during the cycle of your furnace is inadequate, I would suggest purchasing a table top unit, and keep it in the room where you spend the most time. So, the answer to your question is no, you can not run a humidifier while your blower motor is off. Hope this helps.

Humidifier not collecting water

To both, these sound like de-humidifiers. Is your goal to reduce humidity and dry your room?

If so, if the humidity is low, then the de-humidifier has no work to do. A cheap battery or dial humidistat will help.

If not, check for a clogged filter. No air moving spells no de-humidification.

Also check for a frozen evaporator coil. Same as above but this requires repairs.

Electric dehumidifiers are similar to refrigerators and window AC's. With the fan running, adjust the setting to a lower humidity setting until you hear the compressor kick in. If it does not even at the lowest setting, check the space relative humidity to make sure it has work to do. If it does, repairs may be as simple as cleaning electric contacts in controls or as bad as a refrigerant leak or compressor failure. If its bad, better to replace.

A humidifier adds moisture. If you have a humidifier and want to keep the static off your clothes and keep your nose from drying out, fill the tanks with water and add biocide.

Please do not view my comments as patronizing. Even seasoned engineers have difficulty grasping humidification.
