Question about Humidifiers
The humidifier is not collecting water, the motor is running, and condensation is forming on top of the unit. Can this be fixed?
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.
