Question about Honeywell QuietCare HCM-6013i Humidifier
But not run.... just out of the box, levelled and filled with water (including filter)....
Help? Ideas? Fixes?
Unplug the machine and take both the water jugs off. Take the motor unit off and flip it over. Plug it into an outlet and press down the small silver contact at the bottom of the motor. When you press this down, a connection is made and the motor should turn on (Don't worry about being electrocuted, this is perfectly safe). If the motor turns on and runs at various fan speeds, you know it's not an issue with the main unit.
When looking at the base, on the left side you'll notice a plastic piece sticking up that's held down with a plastic shroud and 2 screws. This is you water level sensor. When the water level raises up, this also rises and hits the silver contact on the bottom of the motor. Make sure this isn't binding up(I suggest you clean it) I had the same issue with my HMC-6012i, lights were on at the indicated humidity level but the motor would never run. Take the unit apart, clean it out and follow my instructions. It should fire up (Mine is running right now :) )
