A console humidifier that fails to humidify a room could have a bad humidistat, fan switch or float switch--problems that take specialized equipment to diagnose. But before you call in a pro, it's worth your time to test the fan motor and float assembly, since repairing them is something you can handle on your own. Testing and fixing the fan Steps: 1. Test the fan motor. While the machine is plugged in and full of water, turn both the humidistat knob and fan-control knob to high. If the fan hums but does not turn, or turns slowly, the motor needs to be replaced. If the fan won't move, you may have a bad switch somewhere. Call a professional. 2. To replace a bad fan motor, unplug the machine and disconnect the fan wires from the switch panel. You may have to pry apart a plug, use needle-nose pliers to pull the connectors off the switch, or unscrew the connectors. 3. Remove the old motor from its housing, using a Phillips screwdriver or a nut driver and socket. 4. Remove the fan blade from the motor. Use adjustable pliers to open the spring clamp at the center of the fan blade, and then slip the clamp off. Use a flathead screwdriver to gently pry off the blade, then set it aside. 5. Take the motor to an appliance store to buy a replacement. 6. Install the fan blade on the new motor, then install the motor and reattach the wires. Testing and fixing the float assembly Steps: 1. Locate the empty tank float assembly. This assembly consists of a switch, a connecting rod (on some units) and some type of float. It's supposed to shut down the machine when the water reservoir is low, but if the float jams in the down position, the dehumidifier won't turn on. 2. Check the float and connecting rod, if there is one. If the parts are bent and touching the cabinet, use gentle hand pressure to straighten them so they move freely. If your dehumidifier has a float switch that is triggered by the filter housing moving up and down, make sure the housing is centered in its tracks and moves freely. Clean any debris and dirt out of the channels, using a scrub brush. 3. Check that the float connecting rod is contacting the float switch. If it isn't, bend the end of the rod so it touches the switch.

Some units (BU2200 Bionaire) have a fuse which could be blown.Fan will still work even if fuse is blown but no mist is generated.

Very helpful. I think I must have thrown one away with this problem and didn't think to check the internet. The float assemby instructions worked perfect and my cow is working well. Thanks

On the water line running to the Humidifier there should be a On/Off valve. It may be a saddle type valve. In any event, this is how you can tell if the water to the humidifier is turned ON. Look for either plastic or copper tubing running from a water source to the humidifier.

They are talking about the Humidistat which is separate to the Humidifier. Turn the power off to the furnace and that will disconnect any power to the humidifier. Turn the water off to the Humidifier if you have to remove it from the plentum. Then go ahead and install your new evaporator. If you are looking for the humistat follow the T-stat wire and see where it goes from the water valve of the humidifier...... But they may not have installed one and are useing a different way to turn the Humidifier on in the heating cycle.....

Is the humidifier supposed to turn on when the furnace does. Does it turn on more often when the temperature outside is higher.


Hello, Yes the humidifier should turn on when the blower motor on your furnace kicks on, this way you are only using water and power when the furnace is on instead of wasting it when when the furnace is off. Regardless of outside temperature the humidifier will only turn on and off with your furnace.

The humidifier says "desired humidity" when turned


I would say, either the humidity level in the room is hi or the humidifier is defective, In my house the humidity is about 42% to 45% when we use the humidifier, and can drop to 30% or less if we don't, we leave in DC area,
I hope this helps.
