Question about Honeywell HCM-300T Humidifier

1 Answer

Water Tank leaks all over the floor

Suddenly, water seems to be leaking out of the unit all over my floor. It is also spraying out of the vent as well. This started to happen after a few weeks of regular use - things were basically fine, the room was being humidified very nicely. But suddenly, this problem occurred. I cant seem to understand why it is happening. There are no cracks in the tank, and the tanks 'sealed door' seems to be snugly sealed. Please advise.

    Humidifier was running well for a couple of weeks. It leaked all over the floor this weekend, and is spraying water out of the vent.

    It ran fine for the last two years. I got it out this year to use, put in a new filter (soaked) and when I put the tank in it instantly poured out the bottom of the humidifier. Tank is not cracked. What's up with that?

    I have the same problem. Water comes pouring out of the bottom of the unit. I do not see any crack in the tank, so what is causing this??

    I have the same problem. The unit is brand new. The first night, it ran fine. Now, water spits out of the vent rather than spraying in a fine mist, soaking the floor. I tried turning the humidistat down to 2 droplets (2nd lowest setting) but it did not make a difference. No cracks that I can see. The unit makes a sound like freezing rain hitting a gutter. Anyone have any solutions?

This happened to me the second night of use.  Water all over the carpet and a dripping vent. I called customer service and they told me to remove the tank and filter, and run unit dry for an hour or so. Then restart it.  Worked fine after that.  I think we may have bumped it which is said to be the cause of most leaks.  Bummer is that after 5 night of use the grip on water tank slipped and the tank is in pieces.

NOISY FAN ON HUMIDIFIER HUNTER 34356


Try using WD-40 or sewing machine oil on the bit that the blades are independent from the motor usually just a small opening that you can try to spray some lubricant in there which will reduce friction and noise by lubing up the bearing and decreasing wear if that helps you will then know what the underlying issues are and if you need further action

Why does my humidifier make the floor all wet


You may be over filling the unit. Take the refillable water tank out and with the power removed try to remove all the extra water where the tank goes. check for anything that looks cracked inside the unit the best you can. If the tank is seating properly it should not leak. If it is filled properly it should not leak.

Kenmore Humidifier 14114 - the fan suddenly stopped running. Changed fliter and water, unplugged the unit, changed dial to highest humidity level - the unit will not run.


Hi

Please turn off the power to the unit and unplug it. Now check the fuse inside the unit, make sure its fine and not burnt If fuse seems OK then inspect the connections to the fan and make sure the wires are not cut. Also, inspect the control for any burnt components, use a multimeter to confirm. Hope this helps... Please post back with complete model# if you need more information.

Our HCM-640bw Honeywell humidifier will leak water onto the floor. If I fill the tank and let it sit without turning it on, no leaking. When it runs for about two hours it leaks bad. Any ideas on how to...


Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.

Pinging noise in duct work


it could be merely condensation or maybe the expansion and contraction of the metal as it heats up and cools down. if possible try insulating the vent if not done so already

HCM 640bw leaks


Look for a microscopic crack in the water chamber. Leaking air will allow the water to continue to drain out of the tank. A bit of glue and duct tape over the crack should fix it.
