SOURCE: General Humidifier Model 1042-L leaking water

Check the bottom of drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray is clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

If the unit has not been used in a while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube.

The last poissible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

SOURCE: aprilaire 600 humidity level too low

you may try running your blower 100% of the time.this should allow the humidifier to stay on even when your not heating. once the humidity level gets to where you want it, you may be able to put the fan selector back to auto. also you mentioned you have a variable blower. this is great if it is set up to run at approx. 20% fan speed when it is not heating or cooling. at 20% you can circulate enough air through the house to humidify without being able to hear the noise of the blower. it will really increase the comfort level of the house if you tend to have hot and cool spots. if it was not set up this way, contact the installer and ask if they can do this for you.

SOURCE: How do I know my aprilair 760 humidifier is working?

A simple check you can perform on your aprilaire 760 is the following:
1) locate the two brown wires coming out of the 760 (these wires will be wired to tell the 760 to turn on when the hvac bower is on and the humidistat is calling for moisture).
2) temprarily disconnect the two brown wires from the external wiring and then short the wires together. All you're doing here is bypassing the your thermostat and bower-on indicator.

With the 70 unit plugged in to the wall outlet and the two brown wires connected together, both the fan and the solenoid valve (water inlet valve) should both be activated.

If your sure you have water supply to the unit,the float switch/valve is either clogged or defective.

SOURCE: Kenmore Humidifier not operating?

Turn the unit off, lift the fan assembly off the base, and push the connector together that goes to the float switch on the bottom of the fan motor. If you hold the switch in with your finger (careful not to get into the fan blades) and turn the unit on, the F indication should go away. F (as in Fill), apparently, means the base has no water. The plastic tube that sticks up out of the base floats on the water and pushes the switch. Put it back together, it should work!

My Holmes HM630 humidifier doesn't get up to 40% it levels out 33-34%. How do I get it up to 40-50% air humidity level?


, this cool mist tower is ideal for medium rooms. It provides a refreshingly cool, invisible mist, as well as a digital humidistat which offers precise humidity control for your optimal comfort.

I got this off the Sears website so either the room you're trying to make humid is too large, or the humidistat needs to be set properly. Also make sure there is plenty of water in the tank.

Aprilaire 700. It works on fan on mode but not otherwise. It's never on and the humidity reading is always way below the setting. It should turn on automatically to bring the humidity up, right?


It appears your Aprilaire model 700 is wired to only operate when your HVAC fan is operated by your thermostat. Your HVAC installer can wire the humidifier control to operate the humidifier during a heat call, fan call or to turn on the fan when there is a need for humidification. Please contact your HVAC installer to have them change the wiring.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service

760 aprilaire humidifier does not let water to the filter. I have cleaned and checked the lines in and out of solenoid.


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Your Aprilaire Humidifier is designed to operate in conjunction with your furnace blower motor. Most installers wire a humidifier to operate when the furnace is calling for heat. To determine if your Aprilaire Humidifier is maintaining proper humidity, turn up the heat temperature 5 degrees above the current room temperature on your thermostat and set your humidifier control to call for humidity. The humidifier control is located on the cold air return duct. To set your humidifier control to call for humidity, turn the control dial to the off position and slowly rotate the dial until you hear a “click” on the control. You should also hear a click at the solenoid valve located on your Aprilaire unit. The humidifier control will have a click point at the current relative humidity level in your home. If the current relative humidity is 45% or the outdoor temperature is above 60F, the control will only operate the humidifier in the test mode.
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
  1. No click at the solenoid valve indicates an electrical problem. Contact your heating and air conditioning dealer to further check the electrical components of your Aprilaire Humidifier.

  1. The click sound at the solenoid valve indicates there is electricity to the solenoid valve. By turning the dial of your humidifier control to a setting above the “click point” you should see water coming out of the drain line within a few minutes which would indicate your humidifier is working.

  1. If the solenoid valve makes a click sound and there is no water draining from the unit, this would indicate the flow of water is being obstructed.

1. To determine if water flow is being obstructed, turn the dial of your humidifier control to the off position. The first location you would want to check for an obstruction would be at the saddle valve located on the water line supplying water to the humidifier. When checking the saddle valve, you want to make sure it is completely open. This can be done by turning the valve all the way to the left. If anything is clogged, it can be dislodged by turning the saddle valve all the way to the right and back to the left. Once this is done, turn the humidifier control dial above the click point and you should see water coming out the drain line.


If water is still not coming out of the drain, check the orifice and in-line strainer to make sure they are not clogged. The orifice is located in the tube on the discharge side of the solenoid valve and the in-line strainer is located on the inlet side of the solenoid valve. You may clear the orifice by inserting a needle through the small opening. Clean the strainer by running it under warm water to dislodge deposits or replace. After clearing and re-installing the orifice and strainer (be sure to double wrench all water connections), turn the humidifier control dial above the click point and you should see water coming out the drain line.

I need to get about 70% humidity in my walk in humidor,so how do i adjust the kenmore humidifier


If you do not already have one get a cheap hygrometer at Lowes or Home Depot and put it in your humidor at eye level. Then run your unit until it reads 70 percent. When the unit is balanced in other words shuts off at that humidity you are set. Use a majic marker to mark the position and you are done. Let me know how this works out.
