Hay Richard -- Little suckers spin to fast for gluing. Take the fan blade off , mark one side before you remove it ex: put an x on the side that is facing the wall. Take blade to a Johnstone supply house. Should be one near you somewhere, they are national. The guys there are usually very good at matching up fan blades. Make sure you keep the one you have with the mark on it. When you get home install the new blade the with the side out that was on the old blade. Hope that helps

There are two causes of your problems: 1. The fan needs you to manually turn it to start running. Problem: The motor bearings both ends are dried out. Solution: 1. Remove the motor/fan from the motor housing (there are two screws that hold the motor to the housing. The only way I know how to get to the screw is to bend one of the fan blade up and use a long screw driver to get to the screws. 2. Remove the two screws that hold the bearings to the motor. 3. Detach the bottom bearing (opposite of the fan end.) You might have to use a flat screw driver to pry the bearing off. 4. Use a Q-tip and soak it with motor oil or grease then lubri- cate the fan end shaft/bearing. 5. Use a Q-tip + alcohol to clean up the bottom bearing hole, then lubricate it with grease or motor oil. 6. Put the motor and bearings back together and make sure that the fan can turn freely now. 7. Install the motor/fan back into it housing. The fan should turn on its own without you helping it. If the fan won't turn, you have a bigger problem. See below.
2. The fan won't turn at all and is really tight even when you try to turn it by hand. Problem: The transformer coil(s) is/are burnt out. Chances are you let the fan run dry to a point that it squealed and started to smell like it was burning before it quit all together. Solution 1: 1. Remove the filters and their housing on the bad fan side. 2. Duct tape a piece of plastic over the bad fan opening. 3. Run the humidifier with one fan. It works just as well.
Solution 2: 1. Buy a new humidifier. 2. Make sure you lubricate the bearings as soon as the motor begins to squeal.
Solution 3: You need knowledge of electricity 1. Take the motor/fan out from the housing. 2. Use a vote meter to check the resistance in both coil of the transformer; should read about 17 ohms. The coil(s) that has a high reading or if the meter shows 'OL' is bad. Remove the Yellow tape from the coil to see if you have a loose soldering joint between the coil wiring the electrical cord. If yes, solder the joint back together, check the resistance again to make sure you have about 17 ohms. If the answer is yes, put the yellow tape back on the coil and use electrical tape to secure the tape. Hopefully, the fan should work now. Good luck!
This Humidifier pulls air from outside the humidifier through the fins of the housing and the fan pushes the air through the element and into the duct. At least, that is what it is designed to do. If the element is clogged or worn and/or if the water distribution tray (located between the top of the element and the water solenoid) is dirty/clogged, it will prevent the humidifier from doing its job.
In your case, it sounds as if the water is pushed into the fan blades which indicates the air is flowing in the opposite direction.......the air in your ductwork is overpowering the force of the fan. At this point, you should check to make sure all supply registers for this system are open and onobstructed. Check your humdifier element and distribution pad for cleanliness/integrity. I say "integrity" because in time, the element will begin to fall apart. If all this fails, you should have a reputable company inspect your humidifier and ductwork static.
Without being there with toolbox in hand, I hope you find this information very helpful moving forward. :-)
TRY POURING IN SOME WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR AND RUNNING IT. THE VINEGAR LOOSEN UP ANY SCALE AND JUNK. AFTER RUNNING UNIT FOR AWHILE, DRAIN OUT ANY REMAINING LIQUID AND ADD DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER. RUN UNIT AGAIN. THEN DRAIN OUT ANY LIQUID. NOW THE UNIT SHOULD WORK AS NORMAL. IN THE FUTURE, TRY USING DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER.
I have a Holmes cool-mist One-Touch Humidifier, and you can't reach the blades to clean them, and you can't take the console apart. I finally decided to use two spray bottles and clean and them rinse the Humidifer while holding the console upside down and over a sink. The one bottle you could fill with any mild cleaner plus a lot of water to dilute the cleaner. Maybe dishwashing liquid (not the dishwasher stuff), or a little bit of ammonia, or rubbing alcohol, or vinegar. Spray that on the blades while the machine is upside down, and a lot of sooty dirt drips out. Then rinse with another spray bottle full of plain water. Leave the console upside down on a towel to drip-dry. This is also how you can clean silk flowers that collect dust.
the best way to clean the fan blades is to take like a paint brush or some type of brush and clean it that way. there isn't a way to take that apart. if you try to it can be difficult to put back together. if you have any other questions please let me know
