I think what your saying is the humidifier runs continuously. Check the wiring diagrams on the back page of the installation instructions.
You may have to install a sail switch to control the humidifier so that it only runs when the furnace blower runs (there are a couple of other ways to do this, but on older furances, this might be the easiest (it's the method I chose).

According to the Owners Manual, there's no way remove the top covering the fan. Just clean with a damp cloth and then wipe it draw. However, before wiping it with a damp cloth, you may want to try blowing out the sections of the grill with some canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). Or use a vacuum cleaner with a hose and brush attachment. After doing that, wipe with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth.

Have a ma0800 worked all last year . starts -- shows up then about 35% may shut right off or run for a minuite then shuts off. have unpluged and pluged in again same problem


Check to make sure it's empty (no water in it). Also make sure that the condenser coil and discharge area is clean and not obstructed. Any leak of refrigerant can also prevent operation, due to low pressure switch (a protective device), Plugging and unplugging will not solve the problem.

Fan makes noise


Not sure how long you have had this humidifier. If the motor is getting louder it probably needs a new motor. It is possible if it is making a fan blade noise that something is hitting the fan blade. If that is happening try to open enough to see if the fan blade (impeller) is being impeded.

Have two Hunter humidifiers - model 34357-about 5 years old #1, fan just quit running. All else seems normal. #2, Unit starts running and then stops with the humidity reading at max. Since the...


This is the manual for your de-humidifier. It lists the part number for the power and fan control switch and it states they have a 5 year warranty.

This is their link for support:

They have a msrp on the unit at 84.95. What I wuld do is definately check into the warranty ting with them and I'm sure you could probably salvage one ot of the two units. Replacement parts may not be cost effective. You can test the motor from #1 in #2 and, if it runs, you know it has to be a switch or a start capacitor, etc. I guess it all depends on how much tinkering you want to do. I would think there is a good chance there is a wiring diagram for the motor somewhere inside the case or on the motor. Good luck.

Hello! I have a 33201 Hunter Humidifier and for some reason does not run. It turns on (light comes on) and I can hear a faint hum if I put my ear to the unit... but again it does not come on. It does...


Hi, Mark! It may be clogged with a calcium scale build up from the tap water you use. Unplug the unit and empty any water that is the tank.Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Mix enough to fill the tank. Let it soak for 2 to 3 hours and turn the unit ON. If it starts functioning as it should, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. If it doesn't operate as it should, allow it to soak overnight. And try again, following the procedure above. After it has run to the 3/4 empty point, turn the unit OFF. unplug it and dump the remaining solution. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run again, for at least 2 hours. This with flush the system of the vinegar and water solution.

To avoid having this problem again, always use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.

Hope this helps to solve the problem. Have a Happy Easter!

The humidifier is only a month old, but it is making a loud rattling noise


take the tank off and the fan unit housing. inside you'll see a circular filter that goes into the water sump. make sure it isn't falling apart and hitting the fan blades.
