Kaz 2100 Warm Steam Vaporizer was stored empty for about an year. Today I filled it with water, plugged it in, waited and waited...... no results. Wouldn't start. There is no buttons to push, nothing to...


Chances are the rubber pump inside the unit cracked and will not work anymore. This type of unit is a "Disposable" unit and is not intended for repairs. Its cheaper to buy a new one then buy parts for this.
Hope it helps.

Usually very quiet when running. I went to turn it on this evening and the motor sounded very loud.


Bearings are failing in the motor very common problem try grainger.com you will need info off the motor to match it up. They have awesome tech support for matching motors and cheaper than the oem.

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.

Loud noise


Try checking the pick up tube that spins from the motor to the resivoir. If this is not seated properly or off balance even just a bit, it can cause your humidifier to sound like a small waterfall. Hope this helps

Loud clicking, banging noise


We recently had the same problem. After cleaning both the furnace filter and the humidifier water panel, the clicking noise (electric air filter) and the loud bang went away.

Loud "Glonk" when humidifier turns off


Try turning the water valve going to the soleniod down. There may be too much pressure. You may have to replace solenoid one more time after making the adjustment.
