Default setting too high

I cleaned my humidifier with the EZ Cal stuff as I have on many occasions with no problem. Now, the default humidity level is at 80%, i.e., that's what the humidifier is reading as to the room's humidity level. As a Colorado resident, I know that ain't right. The result is that the humidifier does not register the need to humidify, as it were.

    Used the ezclean and now I am at 71% while my digital hygrometere reads 30% to 34%.

DEHUMIDIFIER IS RUNNING BUT NOT COLLECTING WATER


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

What is the gallons per 24hour output capacity of this unit?


There are several variables that will determine the gallons used per 24 hour period.
  • At what humidity level do you have it set for? The higher the level, the faster consumption.
  • How much air movement is there in the are in the house/area of the humidifier?
  • How air tight is your home?.
  • How may people occupy the home?
  • Whats the temperature setting for your primary heat source?
Let's assume that everything is perfect. Your humidifier holds approximately 6 gallons of water, when completely full. The ideal humidity level depending on the outside air temperature is 40 to 50%. Once the humidity level you have it set for is reached, the humidifier shuts off. When the humidity level drops significantly, it turns back on. So, as you can see, it's difficult to come up with an exact figure. But based on if everything was perfect, about 1.5 to 2 quarts per hour or almost 6 gallons in 24 hours.

Hope this helps you.

After cleaning everything the humidifier no longer runs. When I turn it on no matter what level I set the desired humidity to the green light goes on indicating that it is at the desired humidity. Before...


The humidstat controler has failed. By cleaning the humidfier you introduced moisture into the system. Dry the humidstat controler with a hair dryer and try the humifier again. If the unit still does not shut off at maxium setting. Replace the humidfier controler.

Motor runs, but does not collect any water in yank


Make sure any air filters are clean. Check to be sure the evaporator and condenser coils are very clean. Also could the humidity level in your home just be very low right now and just no moisture to remove? If all of this fails it could be a compressor problem or a refrigerant level issue. If this is the case determine if it is worth the expense to repair.
Good luck

Air-o-swiss 7142 humidifier


I just cleaned mine for the first time, and the instructions are very unclear in the pamphlet on how to do it.
What you need:
One package of EZ Cal cleaner/descaler for humidifiers ( I got mine at bed bath and beyond)
32 oz of hot water
How to clean your unit:
Mix the hot water with the EZ Cal cleaner packet in a separate container.
Remove the tank from the base.
Remove the cleaning brush and the silver stick that is in the base of the unit.
Pour the solution in the base of the unit.
Let the solution sit in the base of the unit for 1/2 hour.
Then take the cleaning brush, and go over the surfaces in the base.
Pour out the solution, and rinse with hot water.
Put the brush and silver stick back into the base.
Put tank back onto the base.
Reset the unit by pushing and holding the power button for a few seconds.
This will stop the cleaning indicator from blinking.
Let the water fill up the filter for a couple minutes, turn on, and your ready to go again.
I hope this was helpful.

Humidifier occasionally runs in spurts (on for 2 secs and then turns off)


It's just trying to keep the humidity level you set it at. By dropping the temperature in your home or changing the humidity level you want you can avoid this.

Good Luck.

My guess is that you are trying to bring the humidity up too high. There is a chart in the manual that suggests where to set the humidity at based on outdoor temps.

I try to keep the level at 30-35% in the winter.

Hope this helps.
