Sounds like you changed just the one (top of stairs) switch. Due to the nature of these (call 3 way switches) the circuit goes through a different set of contacts for each position switch is in. There is not an Off or On, just an Up or Down. If one switch is Up and the light is on, then flipping either switch should turn light off, and vice versa. Therefore, try changing the other switch. Be careful to get the "common" terminal correct. It is easy to get them screwed up, and a little troublesome getting them right again. If you need more help after replacing the switch, add more comments and I'll give you more help.

3 year old Essick tower D46720 sat during off season. Cleaned, filled and plugged in today and will not turn on. Lights are on; nothing happens.


The red water level light was on even though both tanks were full. The white float behind the filter WAS stuck to the bottom of the tank. I just moved it to its floating position and voila! it is working.

Did you just install this unit, or has it been working for a while and just stopped?
1. If you just installed it, the solenoid wires (yellow) must be hooked up to switch in when you have a call for heat.
a) use a current sense relay OR
b) connect 120V & neutral to "HUM" terminal and neutral on heater control board.
2. If it has worked before, maybe the saddle valve is plugged. Turn the "T" handle all the way clockwise, then all the way out CCW. You can hear the water start flowing. Loosen compression fitting at solenoid valve to make sure water is getting there.
3) Also, you must supply 24V to the circuit to open the solenoid valve. Check your wiring. It depends on the model what way to wire it and I cannot go into that here.
4) Testing: Turn off humidistat control. Turn on heat, wait for blower to come on. Turn humidistat control to test posn. Solenoid valve should click. This will put water into top of Aprilaire tray, after few minutes it will dribble out bottom clear vynl tube to the
drain.

Lights on but no fan, no mist


"Take the humidistat out of the humidifier and look for the 3 slits below the restart button, take a hair dryer and send some warm air into those slits for 5 minutes. That usually recalibrates the humidifier."

Can't turn it on. Power digital readout doesn't work.


Mine would not turn on at all, found the contact pads for the buttons was corroded. Used an eraser and cleaned them, working good now. Of course the whole thing has to come apart to get to the contact pads.

I found a solution to our problem with the fill cap failing/leaking. It was/is not the cap, it’s the gasket/grommet/o-ring. Remember “THE MAGIC BULLET”, well the gasket, that’s where you tighten the top to the bottom, some are white and some are black, THEY FIT the Honeywell HWM450!!! ------- Problem solved.

Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist


According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

Unit turns off Mid Stream


The part of the machine that draws water up from the bottom, as well as the bottom tray, need to be cleaned from time to time, or it cannot accept water and will indicate the tank is empty. After removing the tank, unlock the top from the bottom by moving the small lever in the area the tank sits, then pull the entire top section off of the bottom tray. Dump the old water out, then put a solution of vinegar and water in the accepting section of the tray. Replace the top and let that set for a few hours to remove buildup. You may need to use a silicone scraper or something if there is significant buildup. Pour out the vinegar solution and rinse all of those sections off with clean water. Replace the top, lock the bar, and return the tank. Your problem should be fixed.
