Humidifier leaks water when turned on

When we try to use the humidifier water leaks out and onto the floor. If we take the cover off it looks as if the water is shooting out of the filter. We don't think the filter is clogged because when we take the filter to the sink and run water through it the water doesn't shoot out...we have tried slowing down the water but that didn't work....

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.

Water drains into air return & onto floor


Hello, usually this is a sign of a drain problem or the water is entering the humidifier too fast. If the water is not draining at the end of the drain line something is preventing the water from flowing. I would also make sure that there is no heavy mineral buildup on the water panel pad this can cause water to leak out of the humidifier. Lastly check to make sure there is a orifice inside the supply water tubing leaving the solenoid, if not this causes the water to enter the humidifier too fast.

Water keeps leaking out onto our carpeting.


Check the drain lines to make sure the are not plugged and check the hidifier pad to be sure it is not scaled up and not letting the water flow through the pad. Last thing is make sure the humidifier is level so the water isn't leaking out the cover instead of the drain.

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.

Water runs out back humidifier into plenum & onto floor


Hi John Your whole question did not show up (maybe you can re-post) . I can answer what part i understand though. If the humidifier was wired in right it will not send power to the humidifier until the furnace is on, and calling for heat. This stops the unit from working in the cooling mode in summer.Make sure your furnace filter is clean as well

Hope that helps

Water seeping through drain spud area of Aprilaire 600 model.


Clean it and dry it thoughly. Apply a small amount of 100 % silcone caulking with you finger. Seal it on both sides. Allow it to dry thoughly before it gets wet or it will leak.

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.

Need to find a new water tank


Mine also cracked along the seam several years ago. I sealed the crack using two-part waterproof plastic epoxy (found at any hardware store.) Not really pretty to look at, but it hasn't leaked since!
