Heating elements are pretty reliable. They usually have a thermal fuse or thermostat that will open before ruining the element. If your handy with a multimeter, you can check the continuity of the parts and the element itself.
Do you mean Dehumidifier? A machine that takes the humidity out of the air. If this is what you mean and you hear the fan motor working with no water dripping then the problem is that the coil which holds freon gas has leaked out the gas and can be recharged again with the leak fixed of course. Depending how old the unit is you may be better off buying a new model. Repairs can be costly. Hope this helps!
Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and let it sit for 30 minutes, Then start the humidifier and let it run until almost all of the solution has been used. Turn the unit OFF, empty the remaining solution and fill the tank with Bottles Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and run for 30 minutes. This will flush out any of the remaining solution. The remaining water should be disposed of and in the future, use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water. That way you will not have to worry about calcium and mineral build up at all. Plus, the mist that's generated will be totally void of any harmful minerals.
Hope this helped you solve the cleaning issue. Please let me know. Thanks!
Best way to clean it is with vinegar, it will break up the mineral deposits I'm sure the element has on it. If it is like mine the element is covered in white scale, and has stopped working. May not be worth the effort though, my element is now completely clean but the unit still auto-shuts off after about 5 min.
"Take the humidistat out of the humidifier and look for the 3 slits below the restart button, take a hair dryer and send some warm air into those slits for 5 minutes. That usually recalibrates the humidifier."
Hi, I really hate to give bad news it affects my ratings! The hot water didn't bleach the carpet, more like washed the color out. The dye in the carpet was no match for boiling hot water and the result was washed out spots. You can try to find some commercial dyes to fix the spots or replace the affected area. Sorry!
If your humidifier is wired to run only wen your fan is on. if your water supply is could you will not get any humidity unless the heat in on. you need to connect the humidifier to hot water then you can keep the fan on the on positions by your thermostat and set your hemostat to 35% hum.
