Question about Vicks V3100 1.2 Gallon Humidifier

2 Answers

Broken knob I have had this humidifier for about a year, only using it last winter and so far this fall. The knob to turn it on will not work anymore and when I removed it you can see cracks on the inside and it is broken. We now have to use a wrench to turn it on and off. How can I get a replacement knob?

SOURCE: Broken tank

Telephone: 800-477-0457 (M-F 7:30AM-7:00PM EST) with Visa, Mastercard or Discover (All of US and Canada). Our winter "order department" cannot take this order, so please do not push the "to place a new order" option. Please push option 4 from the first menu and then press option 7, which will direct you right to a Consumer Relations Representative who will be able to take the order. If you choose the "to place a new order" option from the main menu they will tell you they cannot take this order.

My Homeric oscillating cool humidifier leaks between the base and jug. This is the first time we have filled it since last winter. It's only a couple years old and worked fine before. Why a leak


Does it have a rubber “O” ring above the threads where the base and jug screw together? If so then check to see if it is soft and pliable( tight) or if is stretched and cracked or broken. Replace it just the same Sometimes these are not the best quality and a season of no use can cause then to dry out completely and crack, hope this helps.

Before we replaced our furnace, I had to replace the transformer almost every year. When the new furnace was installed last year, the transformer disappeared. Now with winter coming on, the 550 hasn't


Hello, seems like there is no way to turn on the humidifier. There would either need to be a new transformer installed, a current sensing relay, or a sail switch to activate the humidifier when the blower motor kicks on.

How and when do i clean the filter


I assume when you say FILTER-- you mean the wicking pad, right?
This is the pad that absorbs the water, and rotates into the path of the air stream- thus increasing the humidity in the room..

I just did a quick search on the internet, and I came across a review on this humidifier--- Here is what she says:

Usually we start running it in late October. It is December now and we have bought THREE pads already this year. One pad should last at least for the few months we use it each year.

If you are fussy, you might want to change it 2 or 3 times in a winter-- others might last thru the whole winter-- Obviously it will have less mold, and will evaporate better, the more often you change it.

Fan does not run. What now? Unit has been cleaned, not used since last winter. When I turn on the fan, it does not start - at any setting. Is there a fuse somewhere? Manual which came with humidifier is...


Not sure what solved the problem: Took fan section control box apart, used compressed air to blow out both areas. Noticed that on/off switch did not stay stable, but was able to re attach knob. By wiggling connections and plug-in, it did finally start.

Aprilaire 760 keeps running.


The humidifier should not turn on untill the furnace blower starts. Since the fan stays on. does the solenoid valve also stay on? If they both stay on you probably have a bad humidistat. If only the blower stays on then the circuit bourd in the humidifier is defective.
Good luck

Water Wheel won't keep turning


This humifier has a black drive wheel and a white idler wheel. On mine, the idler wheel froze up which caused the drive wheel to damage itself trying to turn the drum. First, free up the idler wheel and replace the shaft it rotates on. The idler wheel is still available but you'll have to fabricate the shaft using a machine screw and hollow shaft from your local hardware store. When the idler wheel turns freely, the drive wheel (if still in decent shape) can do its job of turning the drum. If not, you can replace the drive wheel (also still available). I recently put a small rubber band in the groove of the drive wheel and it enabled it to get the necessary grip on the drum.

It's getting harder and harder to keep these wonderful Bemis water Wheel humidifiers alive as the years go by. I wish they still made them because no other humidifier comes close.
