    On most appliances you can swap a cord from any other appliance that you are throwing out. Open up the unit and disconnect the wires (either from crimp style marrettes or crimp push on or crimps with the eyelette) On the housing look for the nylon connector. Pinch this with a pair of pliers and pull out. Putting them back in is tougher but acheivable if you hav patience.

What does a E2 mode mean how do I reset?


The '2' in E2 seems to refer to list of conditions under 'Troubleshooting' in the user manual for this product. The version of the manual that I have found claims that in this condition the problem is: "The amount of heated air exiting the front of the portable heater is reduced."
The solution is to: "Check the electrostatic filter to make sure it is free of dust and dirt. Also check the front grill and rear air intake to make sure it is not being blocked by any kind of debris."by BillBell

Service light on Honeywell humidifier


Sounds like a Water Level Sensor problem. Read the service manual, pages 51 and 53.

http://www.forwardthinking.honeywell.com/related_links/humidification/69_2285.pdf



Unplug the power cord. Turn OFF water. Remove the Water Level Sensor - One screw holds down the spring clip. Remove water scale in the compartment and on the Sensor. Test Sensor with an ohm meter. If OK, reassemble and try again. If bad, replace the sensor.


If you have heavy scale buildup in the sensor compartment, you need better water filtration. Your problems are just starting. This system can be very difficult to clean thoroughly.

this happens when you have run a heater for a long time on an outlet that is either not giving the heater enough amperage or to much amperage try it in a different room if the problem persists try a different heater.

My aprilaire 700 isn't coming on (no water flow). The front part of the unit has fallen off the furnace twice (held on by plastic nubs/slots...) and blew the furnace fuse/ and circuit breaker probably...


Check for voltaged at the solenoid valve. This will either be a 24 volt or 110 volt solenoid valve. Confirm power into the unit 110 volts. If you have power into the unit and no voltaged at the solenoid valve on a call for humidification at the humidistat than the circuit board or the step down transfgormer has failed.. If you do have voltage at the solenid valve than the valve has failed.

Doesn't run


When a humidifier doesn't run, it generally means it isn't receiving electrical power or the controls have automatically shut it off. 1) Be sure it's plugged in to an outlet that works and that it's turned on. Check the electrical receptacle for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. 2) If the receptacle seems to be dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves the humidifier's circuit. 3) Check the setting on the humidistat. If it's set lower than the room's relative humidity, the humidifier won't go on; in fact, it may take several hours for the humdistat to respond to the room's changing humidity. 4) Be sure the humidifier's reservoir is full of water. 5) Unplug the humidifier unit. 6) Check the power cord. If necessary, repair the cord. 7) Remove the humidifier's cover panel. 8) Remove the humidistat and check it (as shown below). Replace it if necessary. 9) If it still doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson, take the unit into an appliance repair shop, or replace the unit. To check the humidistat, you?ll need a volt-ohm meter. A humidifier?s fan vaporizes the water in the reservoir and blows the water vapor into the house or room. If you need to check the fan, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Tighten the fan hub with pliers if it is loose; this should take care of rattles. If the fan doesn?t spin easily when you try to move the blades by hand or if it is still noisy, lubricate the motor bearings with oil. To establish whether power is reaching the humidistat when you know there are no problems with the plug or switches, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Test it with a volt-ohm meter set to the RX1 scale (or to K[omega symbol] or [omega symbol] resistance on a digital meter). Clip the meter to the humidistat terminals. The meter should jump if you turn the humidistat from high to low. If it doesn?t, you?ll need to replace the humidistat or return it to the manufacturer.
