Did you check the orifice inside the supply water tube? Sometimes the orifice can come loose and allow to much water inside the humidifier.

Humidifier doesn't provide more than 28% humidity

Hi Joe,

If you've got water flowing, but the pad is dry - I suspect that the motor is failing to turn the drum/filter. You might want to somehow mark the drum and watch or check it at short intervals of time to see if it moves or not. If the motor fails to rotate the wet portion of the drum/filter into the airflow - it will be difficult for it to raise the humidity of the space.

I found replacement motors as "#10" on this page: These motor looks awfully chintzy to cost $55 - $70 (depending on whether it is a 24V or 115V type). They look very much like a standard clock motor. If that's the case, you can probably replace yours (if defective) for a small fraction of that price - if yours is the 115V style anyway.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...

Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

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.
