This humidifier has a puddle around the bottom when we wake up in the morning

We can't figure out if this is just how the humidifier works or if it's faulty. we fill the tank before bed, turn on and the when we wake up in the morning the floor surrounding is soaked! we have tried putting towels underneath but those just get soaked. we rent and are afraid we are going to run the floor. any suggestions?

You are getting condensed moisture from the steam. This could be due to over humidifying. You may have to put something waterproof, such as a big plastic sheet, under the humidifier and mopping up the next day

My homedic s humidifier is leaking.I turn it on in the evening and next morning I see it in a puddle of water.Happens every time.


Chances are it is just condensation not leakage if it's only wet when its running. Nothing you can do except put a towel under it.

Aprilaire Humidifier Model 600 squeals shortly after being turned on


I have seen some humidifiers do this becuase of high water pressure. Try closing and opening the saddle valve and see if it helps at all.

My humidifier which is suppose to mist seems to only have the fan blowing. No mist. Lost the manuel and the machine was purchased in feb of 11. What is the solution?


It may have a scale and calcium build up. Particularly, if you use well water.

To clean it, unplug the unit and empty in water that is in the tank. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank. Pour the solution in the tank and allow it to set for 2 hours. Then turn the humidifier ON and place you hand in front of the misting nozzle , to feel if it's working. If it is, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty, Empty te tank of the remaining solution and refill the tank with more Bottled Distilled Water and run for an hour. This will flush the 50/50 solution out of the system. It it wasn't working when you first tested it, allow it to set over night and try again the next morning.

In the future, use Bottled Distilled Water rather than tap water.

95% of the time, this will solve the problem. I hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Humidifier is not steaming. We replaced the filter but that didn't help.


surprisingly, the salt solution works. i figured it wouldn't make a difference with the ultrasonic model, but i added a bit of salt to the tank, and BAM!

I have a Carrier humidifier model #HUMCCLBP2217-A. It appears to be working, but every time it shuts off it emits a very loud "thump". The noise is loud enough to wake me up at night. I have...


Do you feel like looking at the humidifier yourself?
You can open the door on the unit, while the furnace is running--
The humidifier is usually installed in the return air duct, so there will be a sucking of air into the open door, when you open it.

There is usually a large wheel, with a wet pad wrapped around the circumference.
This wheel rotates slowly, and picks up water from the sump-- does everything look and sound quiet as it runs? -- The float valve has to open and close, to c ontrol the leve of water in the sump-- (The pool of water the wheel runs the mat thru--
Possibly the valve shutting off, could make a plumbing BANG-- you could duplicate that, by lifting the float mechanism and stopping the water-- does that make the noise?

If you can reach and operate the Humidistat control from near the humidifier, do so a few time-- or Have someone cycle the humidistat a few times, and you listen for that sound--
Is it in the humidifier itself, or the duct work nearby?

It might be that the humidistat wheel scrapes against the side of the sheet metal duct work? -- Sounds travel a long ways in metal duct work!

Let us know if this helps

2 months into the heating season I noticed a large puddle around my heater. the Aprilaire 600 unit was leaking. The distrution tray had a red substance around the water holes. Also the overflow drain line...


Mold can really cause problems with humidifiers-
They do need to be serviced, cleaned up, and something like weak bleach used to kill mold spores, -- get it all tidy and clean!
Were you able to clean out the drain line?-- and is it draining now?
And is the float valve shutting off the water flow, before it reaches the overflow drain pipe?
Another concern would be the soaking pad-- Has it been changed recently?

Tell us more--

I had this problem several years ago. In order for the water to flow, the outside temperature sending unit must indicate to the controller that it is less than 60F. If not, the unit will not operate outside of test mode. Check the temp outside where your sending unit is (could the sun be heating that side of the house?) and ensure that the circuit to the sending unit is working. I had a bad wire splice inside a wire nut stopping the circuit. Took me a long while to figure it out.

If the outside temp and your sending unit circuit is ok, I wish you luck on your troubleshooting.

Works too well, can't stop windows from sweating!


I don't know much about humidifiers other than they are rarely needed and most folk around here would rather there was a lot less humidity., especially considering how easily black mould grows and how injurious to health that can be.
Those few people living with an unsuitable heating system in a badly designed house usually find it is adequate to have a water feature in the lounge or to balance a bowl of water on a radiator.

Certainly when the windows sweat to such a degree, especially if you have double glazing, the humidity must be well above the comfort range, above 70%, and probably well into the moist range of 80% - 90%. Higher than that and any exertion becomes decidedly unconfortable...

I am guessing the humidistat is either faulty or cannot work because the humidity is already too high. I suggest you need to check the humidity in your home with an accurate independent humidity meter before you go further...
