Question about Humidifiers

Noise when fan runs.

I have a Kenmore Quiet Comfort console humidifier.
When I turn it on the fan makes a noise, but other-wise it is running ok.

Where do I oil it?? (I intend to use WD-40, is this the right lubricant??)

Help, I need the humidity.

    I have a similar problem. It appears that when the fan runs it creates enough of an uplift that the fan actually rises up in the guard. The noise comes from the fan blade rising & then falling slightly & then the process repeats. I can't see how a new fan would fix this. There is way too much play in the motor shaft vertically. I don't feel any axial play though & if I tip the motor so it's on it's side it runs fine.

Try cleaning the fan blades
dust/debris build up unbalances the fan and wears the bearings out
oil will only cure the problem for a short while - best option is to relace the fan

    How do I get at the fan. My bionaire is an upright and the fan and motor is encased in the plastic body with no way to disassemble it... that I can see.

I need a fan motor for the 758 144140 Sears Kenmore Humidifier


I have a Kenmore Quiet Comfort Electronic humidifier, model 758.144140. Is missing filter holders, and float switch, so is inoperable. Motor works fine. Contact me if you want the motor - mnwilli@hotmail.com. No charge if you pay for shipping. I will include 2 filters, can include any other parts you want. Why the offer? Space in my house worth more than an inoperative appliance.

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...


Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

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.

My aprilair's humidifier motor began to make loud squealing noise


Put some lubricant, oil, WD40, etc. on shaft of fan. Spin the fan with your finger and work the oil into the shaft until the fan spins freely again. Reassemble and problem will be gone for 2-3 weeks. Repeat again until you want to replace the fan motor.

MOTOR IS NOISE


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. If at all possible lubricate the motor bearings using a few drops of a NON detergent oil. If the motor has sealed bearings with no oil ports then you should replace the blower motor.
Good luck
