My new 45.4 liter humidifier will only run on high speed and is far too noisy, any solutions besides returning?


Return it, somethings wrong with the controls.
OR your house is humid enough, and you are trying to create rain in it, and the controls are working correctly and you are trying to make them do something they don't want to do! If you have a humity scale in your house, check it- you might be surprised at the level you're at already...If you don't have one, get one- they're cheap and plentiful at any hardare store- I have one in my greenhouse that's digital, reads current RH/temperature & highest/lowest RH/temperature in the last 24 hours- cost me $13 at Home Depot.

We havehad this humidifier for 3 months ans have has problems with a foul odor coming from it. We have replaced the filter 3 times! Is this normal? The cost to keep replacing the filter is ridiculous. Any...


I have the same poblem with mine. I'm telling you it was the brand new filter...after about a day the odor would start. I washed the filter out with white vinegar, then a drop or two of Dawn in hot water, then rinsed in cool water. Worked fine so far. It's been about a week. good luck

I only used my machine for just about two weeks (only in the evenings)with a brand new filter and already the top of the filter has turned yellow/brown and brittle. Is it normal to go through a filter so...


how long the filter will last depends on your water .. if your water has a high mineral content then that is left behind as the water evaporates from the filter/wick ... the yellow brown sounds like calcium deposits .. calcium is often added to water to give it a good taste .. that may be beneficial for you but will build up on the filter .. it doesn't hurt much until it starts to clog the voids in the filter material .. as long as air gets thru then the deposits will be ok .. normally the filter should last about 3 months .. if you use distilled water (with no calcium added) then much longer .. if you have hard water then less .. there is a tablet that you can add to the water to reduce the calcium buildup .. the manufacturer of your humidifier will likely recommend that .. thats often available from hardware stores also ..

so your choices are:
1. don't worry about it until the filter becomes clogged
2. use the anti calcium tablet or something like ProTec PC-1 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Cartridge
3. use distilled water for really long filter life
4. plan on replacing the filter every 3 months

other types of humidifiers have other problems .. the hot water type gets calcium deposits on the heating element requiring cleaning a couple times a year, usually with vinegar or a calcium solvent .. that takes awhile..

the Ultrasonic type doesn't generally have problems with internal deposits because it blows moist air out including the calcium .. that produces a fine dust on surfaces in your house ..

of those types the filter system like yours is easier to maintain than the hot water type and doesn't leave dust behind like the ultrasonic all work better and longer if the water is pure .. distilled water doesn't cost much but you have to be careful .. read the small print .. some of it will say "calcium added" .. you don't want that .. if you use only distilled water then the filter should last the whole year ..

Aprilaire Model 560bone dry, water is on, what can I check?


Yes, just check to see if you have 24 volts going into the solenoid. If you do and it is not opening its probably bad. Since you verified the water lines, filter, orifice and saddle valves are not obstructed. Change the solenoid valve. When you price the part. (it's not cheap) consider paying about 30% more and just change the whole unit.
Good luk

Cleaning instructions


nvm :)

Features: Low Maintenance:
* Regulated Release ™ System - eliminates stagnant water while preventing mineral build-up on the wick or filter, which can impede performance in ordinary evaporative humidifiers.
* Dishwasher-Safe, Easy-Clean Base and Tank - with antimicrobial agents molded into plastic parts to inhibit the growth of microorganisms.
* PermaWick ™ - permanent wick never needs to be replaced, saving up to $45 per year in replacement filter costs.
* Top Down Water Dispersion - evenly disperses water from the top over the entire wick to prevent mineral build up that can impede performance.
