Question about General Filters 1042-LH Humidifier
Check the bottom of the drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the bottom end of the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?
If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray may be clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.
Also, if the humidifier has not been used in a long while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube. Tell the spider to find a new home.
Another possible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.
And lastly, is the unit installed properly, parallel to the ground? If tilted, water flowing through the unit may catch the sides and flow out where it should not.
