Question about Honeywell Power Humidifier: Furnace Humidifier/ Humidifier
If anyone can help me, that would be greatly appreciated!
I have 2 Honeywell TrueSteam humidifiers - 1st for upstairs and 2nd for downstairs. Although both seems to keep running as of late, the 1st one for upstairs I noticed keeps "flushing" condensation or the water contents itself onto my condensate pump. The drain hose seems to be always very warm or hot. While the 2nd hose seems like it is always cold. I've observed this for the past 3 days - every few hours I would check since 4 days ago, there was a leak in my basement from condensate pump (related but different issue).
I read in the manual that it would only flush every 10, 20 or 30 hours of continuous use unless you manually press "flush." It seems that this is the case for the 2nd one, but the 1st one seems to be constantly flushing.
Is there something wrong with the 1st one? Will it go bad quicker since it's constantly flushing?
Any help would be very much appreciated!

I also have 2 Honeywell TrueSteam humidifiers and had the same problem; both were operating, but one was always flushing. I took the one apart and found a lot of scale on the water level sensor assembly. I just finished cleaning it off and now it seems to be fine. It looks like the sensor was allowing too much water in and then it had to be pumped out. Worth a try.

Check the dip switches (located under the cover) for the auto flush settings make sure unit is unplugged and cool first

Don't know if this will help or not but dip switch 1 and 2 control the flush cycle on this unit. double check how they are set. the setting for flushing every 5 hours is not listed in the manual, but if both 1 and 2 are in the on position it will flush every 5 hours. hope this helps.

Try white vinegar instead. The same type of scale builds
up in drip coffee makers. Most recommend white vinegar to remove the scale that
builds up over time. The added bonus is it costs less and is completely safe. If your unit is a water over paper media humidifier, you would be much easier to replace the paper media.
