Sunbeam humidifier 3502


Tanks are no longer available. Search for used units on your local craigslist.com. This model was previously made by Holmes and tanks were the same on HM3500, HM3501. Search "Holmes humidifier" then search "sunbeam humidifier" on your local craigslist.org

most bigger towns will have one or two show up. Keep an eye out. People who move to a house (or install) a whole house humidifier sell their old units. We have two of the exact model and I bought a new in box 3501 from a Craigslist posting in September 2013!

I have a healthist humidifier model 4100.. I purchased my humidifier on 12/26/09 from Raindew pharmacy. So far I had no problem.But today, when I plugged the apparel, nothing haened, the motor is not...


If you've been using tap water, then you likely have hard water deposits (scale) on the heating element, which will eventually cause it to stop working. Try cleaning it with an overnight vinegar soak, or whatever is suggested in the manual if you have one. Once most of the deposits are gone, it shold work again. In the future, this will not happen if you use distilled (not to be confused with filtered) water. Good luck!

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.

For more details on this humidifier call 1-800-546-5637.

Hope this helps you.

General Humidifier Model 1042-L leaking water


Check the bottom of drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray is clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

If the unit has not been used in a while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube.

The last poissible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

Water leaking out of bottom


A leaking humidifier is a sign that the unit's filter needs to be cleaned/changed. I had the exact same problem on this model.

Hello, I have an Aprilaire 350, and the "solonoid" needs to be replaced. Exactly what is the part #, I would like to do this myself


I dont knnow the part #, but to be honest with you every single residential humidifier with a soleniod valve uses the exact same valve. Same 1/4' inlet and oulet and same 2 hole mounting pattern. The only difference between humidifiers is basically the bigger the unit the more humidity it can produce. Hope this helps. Steve

I dont know why your humidifier is spitting water out.

But it sounds like you need to clean the unit and install a new filter. Once the filter becomes used, the humidifier won't work as well. Less water will be used because the clogged filter can't hold as much. Once you replace the filter, your water consumption should go back up and you should feel a difference in your home again.

Good Luck.
