Question about Sunbeam Humidifiers
Our SWM 2414 humidifier has the 'tank empty' light on, and won't recognize that the water has been replaced. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Left Tank won't empty
Eureka! Solved my "left bottle not emptying" problem. The problem was not with the bottle but that the top of unit which houses the on/off switch was not seated properly. It takes only a very slight difference in water level for the float to activate the switch, therefore if the top is raised even 1/4" the unit will shut off before the water level is low enough to allow the left bottle to drain.

The water sensor is a float in the mister area of the base. The float is off in one corner with a little plastic barrier around it and translucent cap over it. Make sure the float can more freely. If the float can move up and down but the light stays on, the reed switch (a switch controlled by a magnet built into the float) inside the unit might have been knocked loose, damaged or disconnected. The switch is actually inside the post that the float slides on, but it can only be accessed from the underside - inside the unit.

SOURCE: humidifier is full of water
More than likely, the float valve in the top of the water collection bucket is broken or stuck in the DOWN position. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the bucket for it's holder and empty any water that's in it. Inspect the float valve to see if it moves freely. Jiggle the arm of the float valve to see if it moves up and down freely. If it doesn't then it's stuck or broken. Hopefully, it's only stuck, because in most cases, purchasing a replacement bucket with the float valve installed is your only option.
Hope this helps you solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
