Why am I getting water blowing into the furnace and flooding the floor? This is happening after 12 years of service.


Hello, this can be either a clogged drain line or the tubing supplying the water into the humidifier is cracked. The size of the house has nothing tomdo with the water leaking into the Furnace.

My carrier humidifier has a hose which drains into the laundry sink and a lot of water is coming out. Should this happen in winter? I thought water should only come out in the summer?


The humidifier should run in winter, however if the windows are fogged up it means the humidistat is set too high. Try lowerimg the setting on tue humidistat.

The unit is leaking water, but not from the collection bucket. The unit is in the basement, has worked well for many years, but has never been serviced or cleaned.


More than likely, the drain tube or hole that delivers the water into the collection bucket is clogged. To clear the clog: First turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall outlet. Use an 18 -20" long plastic Zip Tie, that will fit into the drain tube or hole. DO NOT use a wire coat hanger for this. Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and gingerly work it in until you reach the bend of the tube. This is where it gets a little tricky, because you must get past that bend, to be effective. Once the Zip Tie has reached it's limited reach or it has bottomed out. Slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will remove any clogs, so be prepared for water to follow.


Hope this helps you solve that leaky situation. Please let me know.

My humidifier is not working. I have cleaned the heating element. When plugged in the green turns on but that is it. The elements are not heating up to begin the vapor process.


Add salt. No more then 1/2 to 3/4tps max depending on the mineral content in your area.

The unit has two electrodes dipped into the water. Since water its self is none conductive without heavy minerals such as iron and such. You will have to add a small amount of salt until current starts flowing between the electrodes. I suggest a small pinch of salt each try until it produces the steam effect you desire.

Hello,All the pads have a protectant(white) coating because the pad is aluminum and would rot out fairly quickly from getting wet.The slime is bacteria(fungus) not from the coating that forms from stagnant (sitting) water.Make sure the unit is draining out dry after each cycle.With the pad out pour vinegar OR bleach & water (10:1) to kill the mold in the drain pipe.Do not clean the pad at all ,it gets replaced.They sell an inexpensive wet floor alarm at the store that makes noise when wet.

Leftover water in the base was hot in the morning


If there is not much leftover water, you don't have to worry much about it. However, if the leftover water is
somewhat flooding the area where it was located, it is a
different story, there is a leak and it must be corrected.
Check for leaks in the water container, so that operates
normally. Hope this will help you.

If the water stops when the heater is not running then the humidifier is working fine. I know it seems like alot of water but that's how it's designed.

Filling humidifier


On the Vicks v-3100 the water tank should lift off of the unit. Flip it over and there is a lid. Open the lid and fill the tank. Once you've filled it back up, put the lid back on. Flip the tank over to make sure there are no leaks, then put it back on the humidifier.

Note: It's very important to check to make sure the tank isn't leaking before you put it back on the humidifier, if it is, it will flood the reservoir, in turn causing water to leak out of the bottom of the humidifier (which is one of the major complaints about the 3100).
