Odors are common because water stagnates in the tank. 1) Unplug the unit. 2) Empty the reservoir, mop up any damp areas, and clean the tank and evaporator belt with a mixture of one gallon water. Add 2 tablespoons of chlorine bleach to the water for stubborn smells.

I wouldn't mess around with trying to fix it myself if the item is still under warranty. If you are smelling burning, and safety mechanisms aren't working, I'd be very careful about continuing to use it.

Do you still have your invoice? At only 2 months old, the unit shouldn't be malfunctioning like that. Best thing to do would be to take it back and exchange it for a new one. If the place you bought it from won't take it back, then call Honeywell directly. Honeywell should cover either fixing it or exchanging it under warranty.

If it smells like plastic burning. Stop using it immediately. As there could be an electrical short or overheating of the unit. If doesn't smell like plastic burning, you'll need to be more descriptive of what the odor smells like.

We had our furnace repair turn on our Aprilaire 760 last summer. It gives off a very strong smell similar to an air freshener. We'd like that to be less in intensity. Furnance company says it's just fine....


I hope this helps you, have the repair person check to see if a furnace filter air freshener was installed at your last furnace check up without your knowledge. Also checked all wall and or floor registers to make sure the source of smell is not coming from them, it may be circulating though the duct system.last thing is to replace media pad in humidifier along with furnace filters, if you have air cleaner wash filters with hot water and baking soda, wipe & let dry before re- installing them. Your repair person may have use a strong smelling cleaning solution in humidifier that is now circulating though out your home, good luck.
