Will not hold the water

I was so excited giving this present for my new granddaughter and was so disheartened when it didn't work. I tried filling the tank and did not succeed. I think it must be missing a part but I'm not sure which one. I sure hope you can help.
Thank you so much for your help

Honeywell he240 no longer working. It is less than 2 months old. I noticed water had stopped flowing out of drain tube. The filter tray is not filling up with water. Humidistat clicks when turned up and...


Maybe the hose is blocked. Take the hose off the supply side, and blow into just enough to add pressure to it and see if that works.

Wont run in unit lift out and lift level control works fine put it back in unit [ very tight fit] lift level control wont work


Hello.

The GE humidifier adds a continuous stream of cool mist intothe air, giving moisture to dry air due to cold weather or dry climate or tohelp those who desire additional moisture because of respiratory problems orallergies. Sold online and in many department or home retail stores, thehumidifier requires regular cleaning and maintenance for proper functioning andto help keep mineral scale or bacteria from growing in the humidifier. ·1 Connect the power cord on the GE humidifier firmly to a power outlet if thehumidifier is not working. Replace or reset the circuit breaker as necessary.Turn the power switch to "On" if there is power but the unit is notoperating. · 2 Fill thewater tank to the "Fill" mark if the mist output is low or notpresent. Wait 15 minutes after filling the tank and before starting thehumidifier to allow the wick filter to absorb the water for proper function.Turn the humidistat knob to a higher setting for higher output. · 3 Check the capon the water tank and close the cap firmly. Check the rubber tank cap ring onthe cap and reseat firmly to help provide a better seal. · 4 Replace thewick filter with a new wick filter, available through General Electric, if thewick filter inside the base turns brown. Replacement parts may be ordered bycalling 877-207-0923. · 5 Clean thewater tank with vinegar and a soft brush if the water begins to get cloudy.Rinse well before refilling with water. Use cold water in the tank, as warm orhot water may make the water appear cloudy. · 6 Loosen thetank cap slightly if the humidifier cycles on and off unexpectedly. Turn theknob to a higher or lower setting. Thanks.

I had left my vicks vaporizer with water in it for like a month or longer and barely cleaned it out and now it doesnt work no steam or nothing will come out wats wrong is it broken???


The problem is more than likely due to a calcium and mineral build up in the tank and the tubing.
Hopefully, it's not to late to do something about it. So follow the instructions below,

Unplug the unit.

Remove any remaining water from the tank.

Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and pour the solution into the tank. Allow t to sit overnight. In the morning, plug the unit in and turn it ON. If it doesn't start producing steam, turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the tank. Mix more solution as described above, pour it in the tank and allow it to set for 3 or more hours. The plug the unit in and turn it ON. Hopefully, this time, it will start to produce steam. If it does allow it to run until the tank is half empty. Turn the unit OFf and empty the remaining solution from the tank. Refill the the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit until it's empty. That will flush the system.

In the future, I would highly recommend the use of Bottled Distilled Water, rather than using tap water.

If the above didn't solve the problem, it's time to buy a new humidifier and use Bottled Distilled Water in it.

Need replacement o-ring for water tank cap


This is a posting from someone other than myself...however, it presented a good solution.

A solution to the 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.

FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -


No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

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.

Humidifier doesn't work as it used to,,,,,


First check to see if the two water sensing probes have been cleaned. After cleaning, if the problem still persists, try the following.

There is a small thermostat switch that sits on the heating coil underneath. This thermostat is designed to prevent the coil from overheating when no water is present. What probably has happened is the switch is doing what is designed to do but has become defective and is opening and closing at a lower temperature. So what is happening is the red light reset indicator will come on because this switch opens, the coil starts to cool and the switch closes and the light goes off. Because it is defective, this is occurring when it shouldn’t, causing this maddening on/off cycle.

Fortunately, this sensor is easy to replace if you’re handy. Make sure you unplug the humidifier from power. Turn it over, remove six screws, and carefully lift the lid. Look toward the heating element and you will see a small button type device with two wires plugged into it and is attached with two screws off to the side of the element. This particular thermostat is obsolete and very difficult to find. However, there is an excellent substitute made by Stancor for around $5.00. Their part number is STO-325.

Remove the two screws and lift off the thermostat and slide the wire connectors off. Simply reverse the process for installation and be careful to replace the bottom lid, being careful not to crimp the wiring.
