I has the same problem with my HE360 unit. The unit was in fact miswired. The head unit red wires were connected directly to the blue solenoid wires, and activated the solenoid without any signal from the humidistat. As soon as the unit is plugged inn, the water starts running without any signal to the unit. If your unit is miswired, the soleniod blue wires need to be cut and connected to the red crimp connectors.

I had the same problem with my Honeywell HE 265. I ordered part number 32001639-002 from simplyplumbing.com and fixed it today. The solenoid is the same for the HE 220. You'll need a torx screwdriver and a 5/8" wrench. Doesn't matter how you re-attach the electricals, they're DC.

No turn the furnace switch off (the light switch near furnace, if water continues replace solenoid valve. Afterward you adjust to a slow trickle when calling for humidity, anymore is wasted water.

My Vick's Warm Mist V74A was absolutely lovely when I purchased it (May of June of 2010). However, I CAN ADMIT (because I'm sure majority of people are not) that I have not cleaned it since or read my...


The simplest and easiest way to clean the interior workings of the unit is to fill the tank with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Run the unit for an hour. Turn it OFF for 30 minutes and the run it again, until the tank is almost empty and turn the unit OFF. Empty the remaining solution and refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and operate it for at least 45 minutes to an hour. This will flush out all of the remaining solution.

What you saw before before cleaning the unit, was a build up of mineral deposits and scale from the tap water that you used. In the future, I would highly recommend that you use Bottle Distilled Water, rather than tap water. That way, you won't have to flush the unit as often and you'll be using water that is mineral free.

Hope this helps you solve the scale and mineral deposit problem. Please don't forget the rate my response to you. Thanks!

We have a water softener and I think the water has too much salt and therefore, our Vicks vaporizer has too much steam. Any suggestion?


If your softener is working properly, you should never get any salt in your water. The salt is used only to reactivate the ionic media in your softener cartridge, and during the backflush cycle, all that salt is removed, down to PPM (Parts Per Million) levels.
In any case, even if you used salt water in your vaporizer, it would not increase the amount of steam that it produces. Salt water has a higher boiling point than fresh water. You would also notice salt buildup inside the tank as the water level goes down.
The Vicks Vaporizer works by using only heat to produce steam- the hotter it gets, the more steam it makes. The only practical way to get too much steam outside of a malfunction that causes your heating element to get abnormally hot would be if you live at a very high altitude where water boils at a lower temperature.
High humidity in your home will make it appear as if your vaporizer is making too much steam since the surrounding air will be less capable of absorbing it.
A slightly "off topic" note- if you chose the Vicks Vaporizer/humidifier and have children, you have made a wise decision. Because it produces water vapor by heating instead of ultrasonics, contaminants and minerals (such as salt, iron, calcium, etc.) remain in the tank and will not enter the vapor stream.

Is ok to use normal water


Normal does not have enough minerals to conduct electricity very well, and thus a bit of bicarbonate soda in would facilitate the flow of electricity to make the humidifier work. A pinch of baking soda in the water would make it work.

My vaporizer is making a quiet bubbling/gurgling noise. This is only the second time that I've used it, but I can't seem to find the instruction manual. What could this mean?


Hi,
That is very normal...the sound is the water being turned to steam which is the "vapor" that comes out...
Everything is okay and perfectly normal.

Aprilaire 600: water only runs in "Emergency" Heat mode


When your unit is on normal the outside unit works and the inside only the fan runs. your heat pump does not remove any humidity when it operates so the installation cotractor did not wire it to operate then. you can change the wiring on the humidifier to operate all the time by wiring it to the fan (g) terminal then it should work just turn it all the way to the lowest humidity when you are in cooling mode.

One bottle drains completely before the other one?


Normal no, common yes. $10 says the right bottle drains first..... If you want to get the other bottle to drain put a shim under the side that is not draining.

My bionaire CM1 makes bubbling sound every other minute


Yes, mine does that too. It got very annoying and I couldn't sleep. I noticed some calcification inside and gave it a rinse. I don't have the manual on cleaning it but after I did that it's much quieter. I think you should try cleaning it.
