HE220A1019 Whole House Humidifier

Thank-you for your response to my problem. I checked everything you suggested and all looks good except your idea of the fan spinning the right direction. I pulled the cover off and watched the fan spin while running. it is pulling air into itself instead of pushing air through the pad and into the plenum. I maybe wrong but it seems more likely that the fan should push pad moisture into the HVAC system. With that said how do I change the direction of the fan motor.... cannot be wired wrong on my end... they only have me break one side of the fan motor and run through the humidistat and sail switch. confused...

Is the unit on the return side or the supply side of your system ?
Is the system upflow or downflow?
You are right in your assumption about the air needing to be drawn through the Humidifier, now before changing the direction of the motor, we need to look at if the unit should be moved to the other duct, its alot less complicated, now when the fan comes on from the furnace, you have no trouble heating the house right ? if that is the case then moving the humidifier to the other duct would be your best bet, if your heating for some reason is only comming out of the return then yes you will need to change direction on the fan, but I would bet that moving it would do the trick for ya, I have only run into a couple of fans that actually were running the wrong way, thats why I asked, well anyways, you will need some tin, zip screws, tin snips, maybe a little more wire, let me know what ya find, I really appriciate your question back to me, anymore question please ask ! thanks again.

I recently switched out an anolog thermostat for a programmable one. I programmed it and everything looks fine except the furnace isn't turning on. I manually bumped up the temp and nothing happ


My suggestion is you made a wiring error. Does the furnace come on when you turn the thermostat DOWN?
Re-check your wiring.The AUTO-MAN switch for the fan only switches the fan on, leave it in auto.

Less than 5 years old - Microwave Panel lights up, turntable turns, fan works - everything works except it doesn't heat food. Heard a pop, and now it runs louder than before but doesn't heat. Any ideas?


That pop was the magnetron frying. This is a repairable problem, but feirly expensive, around $300 if you have it done by a professional.

Please rate my response if it was helpful to you.

Thanks, Repairman45.

We have a pellet stove -seems to be working ok except that we have a smell of smoke like that of having a fireplace. We think everything is sealed correctly. Any suggestions?


From what I have read on these things, never had one, but they have 2 fans, maybe one, plus an auger and thermostat. The one fan would **** fresh air in from the room to fuel the fire, while the other fan would blow the heat back out from a sealed area. The auger spins constantly, slow, dropping pellets on the fire determined by the thermostat. If this is right and relates to your stove, I can see where the smell of smoke would come from. The second fan is pulling in smoke from the fire. Check the gaskets in that area. I was wondering if it wasn't just the new stove smell you were getting?

Compact laptop keeps overheating then cutting off


Check the fan, it may have stopped spinning. If the fan bearing has seized, you may be able to free it by removing the fan label covering the bearing and oiling it. If it does't work, replace it.

If the fans spins freely then remove the fan and clear dust from the heat sink fins.

Computer won't power on


Well assumomg you letf the psu power connected to the motherboard and turned the machine on using the power switch (which also should be connected! I know it sounds obvious but a lot of the time people genuinly forget!) and then there is no power to the fans, the possibles hardware fault could be the motherboard or the CPU.
