Thank you for the follow up but there was a price at the end for my question so I decided to find out myself. I bought this product which is not the greatest and if on top of that I have to pay for a little information that's a bit far !

Regards,
Michel

Fan motor seems to be running backwards. Installed in 1999.Always maintaned. Overall worked OK until this past year. Many problems with water leakage. When I opened and checked fan direction, it was moving...


The fan on the model 700 does rotate backwards compared to your typical fan operation. This fan will pull air from the duct verses pushing air into the duct. There are several things that may cause your humidifier to leak. The most known reason for leaking is the water panel/filter is not being changed frequently enough which should be at least once every heating season. You also want to confirm that you are utilizing an authentic Aprilaire water panel.
  • Is the Feed Tube tightened or is there a crack in the tube?
· Is the base of the scale control insert sitting firmly in the drain spud at the base of the housing?
· Does the bottom of the scale control insert have a taper to it to direct water to the drain spud?
· Is the Scale control insert positioned correctly? The scale control insert has a front and a back. The back of the water distribution tray has an indentation in it to allow for clearance of the nozzle, which is attached to the top of the base. If reversed, and forced into place, the water distribution tray will break off the nozzle attached to the water feed tube and potentially the housing, causing water to leak
· Is there a gap between the top of the water panel and the water distribution tray for air to go through?
· Is the colored dot on the water panel, up?
· Are there signs of entrainment? Mineral build-up on fan blade, shroud, inside of cover?

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.

Honeywell HE260 leaks somewhere


Neither, even if the solenoid or humidistat stick, it should always drain properly. Is the unit mounted on the cold air return duct or the supply plenum? If it's mounted on the supply plenum, the water panel might be getting blown forward and spilling the water. High efficient furnaces also can leak water on the floor if its drain is restricted. If hum. is mounted on return duct make sure drain is clear by blowing through it. On Honeywell hum's I've seen the rubber hose from the solenoid valve to the distributor tray leak too, check the rubber 1/4" hose.

My 7142 leaks


There are a few hose connections inside the unit related to the heater element. Water flows from the reservoir down into the unit, takes a turn into a tube with the heater element wrapped around it, then turns back up into the mister area. Any of the four connections (base to first elbow, elbow to heater tube, heater tube to second elbow or second elbow to base) could be leaking.
The white ring around the mister disk cracked on my unit, letting water leak out the bottom as you describe... Take a close look at that.
It's also possible the base itself is cracked somewhere... Look closely at the mister and reservoir areas of the base for cracks.

Water leak


Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.

LEAKS


Try to just fill the tank with water and set it upright on a table. If it leaks, the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. Order one at kaz.com (search using model#). I have had this tank leak if the special cap is not sitting properly on the base. Make sure that the steam tower is properly locked in place before you place the water tank in the reservoir. The cap on the tank has a spring release that has to be correctly lined up so it only releases water when the water level in the reservoir drops.

Very little water left/ fills up and leaks


**With the unit unplugged**
the float sensor is probably getting sticky with residue and buildup (lime, grime, etc). Try cleaning the little float and that area. It should move easily when clean.

Cleaning instructions


I was looking for instructions as well, because I thought I had lost the manual. But then my wife found it. According to pages 8-9 (I scanned the pages as well and posted it here):

CAUTION:
Always be sure that the appliance is unplugged and switched OFF before cleaning or attempting to store the item. NEVER PLUG OR UNPLUG UNIT WITH WET HANDS.

DO NOT leave water in water tank or water basin when unit is not in use as it may result in the build up of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output efficiency of the humidifier.
PLEASE NOTE that if the water remains in the water tank for more than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible.

ALWAYS use fresh cool water when using unit.

NOTE: When removing water tank, water may accumulate under vapor lid and on the bottom of the water tank. It is recommended to have a dry cloth ready to dry wet surfaces.

DISINFECTING THE WATER TANK AND WATER BASIN
1. Fill water tank with 1 teaspoon of household bleach in 1 gallon of water. Let stand twenty minutes, shaking vigorously with two hands every few minutes, drain and rinse with clean water until the bleach smell is gone. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
2. Wipe the water basin with a soft cloth dampened in the bleach and water solution. Rinse the water basin with cool water to remove any bleach smell. DO NOT IMMERSE WATER BASIN IN WATER.
3. Wipe all exteriors surfaces of the base with a soft, dry cloth. Do not immerse the base in water or use water to clean the base. An electric shock may result or the humidifier may be damaged.


GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any cleaning operation, switch the humidifier off and unplug it.

1. Always unplug the unit before cleaning.
2. The humidifier must be drained and cleaned before storing.
3. Once unplugged the exterior of the unit may be cleaned by wiping with a soft dry cloth. Caution: The ON/OFF switch must be throughly dry before unit is again plugged into power source.
4. There may be some lime deposits in the nebulizer, particular in areas with hard water. Overcome this drawback by cleaning the nebulizer with water and vinegar on a soft cloth regularly, as follows:
A. Dampen a cloth with vinegar and wipe the nebulizer gently, until the lime deposits disappear completely.
B. Rub down gently with a dry cloth and remove remains of humidity.
C. Do not rub the nebulizer with solid objects.
D. Do not clean with chemical products
5. When cleaning the water basin do not place the nebulizer directly under the water tap.
6. Never immerse the unit in water or let water enter the fan vent (see figure 3) or any other openings.
7. It is normal for water to be in the water basin. However water must not get inside the central body. If this should happen, take the humidifier to an authorized service center before using it again.
8. Clean the inside of the water tank at least once a week, as follows:
A. Fill the tank with clean water adding a few drops of bleach. Close the tank completely with its cap and shake by holding the tank with both hands. Do not hold by handle while shaking the tank.
B. Rinse thoroughly.
