you should be able to take the tank off first and then then rest of the unit should pop off of the base after that. if you have any other problems please let me know i'll see what else i can do.

We have a kenmore humidifier on the furance model # 48945. it doesn't stop running so our water bill is twice what it should be. I've tried to find a manuel on line so i can figure out how to...


Noodles, it sounds like the float valve inside the water reservoir is stuck in the down position. Turn the water line ON/OFF valve to the humidifier OFF. Open the top of the reservoir and you will see the float valve. Gently, lift it up, to see if it will remain at the top of the water level, which left in the reservoir. It it doesn't, then the float needs to be replaced. In the mean time, leave the water line ON/OFF Valve OFF.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Need a manual for Danby PHD DHCC6020...how do I get the dehumidifier to work??


Are you sure you have a Danby Humidifier and not a Dehumidifier? As Danby doesn't make humidifiers. At least, not in the US and Canada.
Please advise. Thanks

Humidifier not working


Ensure there is water in the tank.
  • This may be caused by mineral deposits in the water channels. Try the following: Clean the water tank, base and vapor nozzel with a damp cloth to remove any build up in the water channel.
  • When was the last time the cartridge was changed. (If it’s been over 3 months, this could be the reason why the unit is not working properly.)
  • Unscrew the demineralization cartridge and run the unit, if it starts to mist then you need a new cartridge. (insert cartridge link here)
  • The screw cap for the water tank, onto which one first screws in the demineralization cartridge, has a small rubber gasket. make sure that gasket is not too far down against the outer screw cap. If it is the spring loaded button would not work properly to let the water descend into the base tank .
    The solution: push up on that small rubber gasket so that it is as far up and away from the screw cap as it can be without falling off, and voila! you get mist!!
  • If you have changed the filter recently then take out the cartridge and run the unit without the cartridge for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Aprilaire 700 never shuts off


Thanks for your question,
Sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid valve in your Humidifier, this will need replaced, the solenoid is supposed to open and close when there is a call for humidity only when the furnace is running, then when the proper amount of humidity is sensed by the humidistat, then will it shut off, with the solenoid not working it will let water flow through like an open faucet, the solenoid is the componet that the 1/4in copper tubing connects to at the humidifier, has two wires running from it, you will need to shut the power off before changing this out, also shut the water off at the valve at the other end of the 1/4in copper line, or you might get soaked,please be careful when installing the new solenoid, making sure the water line connection is secure, or you will have leaks, hope this was helpful, please leave a rating, thanks again for your question,

He220a honeywell humidifier water actuator valve broke


The screw does turn and will open the valve, take the hex nut off and turn the screw to see if water leaks between the valve portion and the hexnut housing. They used that same valve on many models, including the newer models. Make sure you are getting water to the valve.

Humidifier doesn't work as it used to,,,,,


First check to see if the two water sensing probes have been cleaned. After cleaning, if the problem still persists, try the following.

There is a small thermostat switch that sits on the heating coil underneath. This thermostat is designed to prevent the coil from overheating when no water is present. What probably has happened is the switch is doing what is designed to do but has become defective and is opening and closing at a lower temperature. So what is happening is the red light reset indicator will come on because this switch opens, the coil starts to cool and the switch closes and the light goes off. Because it is defective, this is occurring when it shouldn’t, causing this maddening on/off cycle.

Fortunately, this sensor is easy to replace if you’re handy. Make sure you unplug the humidifier from power. Turn it over, remove six screws, and carefully lift the lid. Look toward the heating element and you will see a small button type device with two wires plugged into it and is attached with two screws off to the side of the element. This particular thermostat is obsolete and very difficult to find. However, there is an excellent substitute made by Stancor for around $5.00. Their part number is STO-325.

Remove the two screws and lift off the thermostat and slide the wire connectors off. Simply reverse the process for installation and be careful to replace the bottom lid, being careful not to crimp the wiring.
