Question about Crane Thomas the Train Humidifier

Open Question

Thomas the train -Broken part

I have a Thomas the Train humidifier and there is a little clear plastic round part with a seal that is attached under the top half of the humidifier where you put in the water. Without this part the water would not stay in. A certain amount of water does leak out - I think it's meant to be that way, but not all. The part broke off for some reason, and I was wondering if it is ok to reattach the part with plumbers putty myself, or if there is another solution.

SOURCE: Very little water left/ fills up and leaks

**With the unit unplugged**
the float sensor is probably getting sticky with residue and buildup (lime, grime, etc). Try cleaning the little float and that area. It should move easily when clean.

The water source (tank or bottle) sits tight on the platform and there is a plastic form known as a seal to prevent leakage. You need to replace the seal.

My ultasonic humidifier is not working

Make sure it is plugged into an outlet that works with a lamp or other device. If it does, try wiggling the cord to see if there might be a broken wire inside that you can get to activate (to diagnose as a broken wire in the cord). If that doesn't work, try wiggling the switch.

Also, make sure the tank is properly placed. - look for any little micro switch sensors that are pressed in when the tank is properly placed. Try pushing these in manually to get it to start (if there are any).

There red may also be a light sensor to see if the tank is clear enough before starting - prevents people from infecting themselves with moldy water. Cleaning tank with vinegar and then dish soap is a good idea.

A new switch or cord is a possible repair. Others are difficult.

If this does not get you up and running, any circuit board repairs will be more expensive than a new one. You will have to consider it unrepairable. Either return it to the store if still under warranty or send it to the dust bin (or recycling).

Honeywell humidifier htt-145 leaking from bottom

If you can locate a crack in the clear plastic tank, there may be a chemical you can buy to "weld" the crack closed. If you aren't sure what plastic it is, you might try sealing the crack with bathroom caulk that is mold resistant. You must locate the source of the leak and patch that.

What is the saddle valve?

Your humidifier will have either a copper or plastic tubing attached to it. This tubing is the water tubing. If you follow that line to where it "taps" into a water line (near the water heater or a water line under your house), there should be a water shut-off valve. The water shut-off valve could be any type of valve but is normally a saddle valve. You could skip the step of shutting off this valve; however, it is good practice to shut the valve off for two reasons: 1. in the event of a water leak, you will be able to easily locate the valve to shut off the water. 2. if the valve is not "excercised" from time to time, the seals will dry rot and the valve will not be capable of doing it's job when the need arises.

Here is a video showing you how to trace your water line to your saddle valve. There is additional information on the video that you might find helpful as well.

Doesn't seem to turn on when I plug it in.

Feel the body of the train humidifier, I hope it's warm.
Otherwise,. it is not working. Unplug the unit, and check
the power terminal fuse, it could be busted. If it is okey,
then it is the heating element that needs to be replaced.
May this tip help you.

Holmes HM4600HD humidifier tank

Mine dried out too. I could not find where to get the rubber valve seal for the tanks. Holmes does not list the part and when I called the rep told me they didid not stock the part. I solved my problem by purchasing thin rubber washers from Lowe's. They are 3/16 X 1 1/4 X 1/16 thick. The 3/16 hole in the center "snaps" on over the end of the plastic plunger just like the original. I had to trim the outside diameter with scissors to about 1" or using the old ones as a guide. Cost me $0.67
