Question about Honeywell Humidifiers

Honeywell HCM-300T Humidifier is making a loud whirring noise

This was free (Now I see why!), so I`d love to make it work. Silent at first, now it makes a loud whirring noise when in operation on any speed. I have completely disassembled the humidifier and it seems to be the motor itself that is making the noise. I am not knowledgeable enough to feel comfortable with disassembling the motor to check it out. All I did was lubricate any visible post that the two fans spin on which has not seemed to help at all. Secondly- this unit did leak all over the floor when I first tried to use it. It seems the water plastic pipe coming out of the water tank has to be kept tightly pushed together (not sure how/why there isn't a better waterproofing and locking mechanism in place there/???)

SOURCE: Our HCM-640bw Honeywell humidifier will leak water

Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.

SOURCE: My aprilair's humidifier motor began to make loud squealing noise

Put some lubricant, oil, WD40, etc. on shaft of fan. Spin the fan with your finger and work the oil into the shaft until the fan spins freely again. Reassemble and problem will be gone for 2-3 weeks. Repeat again until you want to replace the fan motor.

I need a tray for hcm 300t. the filter sits in this tray, my tray has a crack and i would like to replace it


Why not just repair the crack with a product like Devcon Weldit? Stuff works great for sealing cracks and is waterproof.

The Honeywell HCM-6009 humidifier unit no longer turns on. This was an abrupt change--not sure what happened. It was working fine one day, and the next day it was dead. Is there anything I can do to...


Save the time and frustration these units are hard to work on. Make sure there is power to the unit other than that throw it away and buy a new one for $100.

Humidistat problems


The ability of the humidifier to maintain a given moisture content in the air is far more difficult than a heat or cooling unit to heat or cool the air.

Moisture vapor has far more energy to seek dryer air, than tempered air. So the moisture seeks and finds dryer air quickly, whether it be through stair and door ways, or through cracks and seams in walls and doors/windows, or through non vapor barrier surfaces.

The only way the unit would be able to achieve a humidity level as stated, is for the unit to be placed in a vapor-tite room that has a minimal of leakage.

You could put more humidifiers in the space, or more and larger humidifiers in the space, to try and overcome the vapor moving to other areas of the space. But unless you have a fairly vaportite space, it is unlikely the unit is under capacity, and the only way to test what capacity is needed is to take humidity measurements.
