Question about Bemis 696 400 Humidifier
Old motor froze (fried?) up. Replaced with new Falco D109 cross-referenced fan motor from Johnstone Supply. Motor overheating when not running but plugged in. Replace motor speed control with exact OEM control (part no. 908176). Fan motor's temperature within control while the box humidifier is running with speed control set at the 12:00 o'clock position or higher. When humidistat shuts off fan motor, I think that the motor gets hot. Anyone seen this kind of problem? The only electronic component not replaced is the humidistat (part no. 5560060). Is there a possible bad electronic component in the humidistat that would feed to much voltage or amperage to the new Falco motor? This original humidistat may be what fried the orginal fan motor. Also-- having trouble finding the humidistat part no. 5560060 in stock anywhere. Thank you in advance for your help.

On my water wheel several parameters must be met. 1. Power on, cord plugged in. 2. Water in tank, the float arm needs to move to indicate water present, the red light on the dash indicates no water. 3. Humidity controll set higher than the room atmosphere humidity, clockwise is higher on mine. 4. The fan speed selecter must be on either high or low, the fan won't run unless one position is selected. I hope this helps

Hay Richard -- Little suckers spin to fast for gluing. Take the fan blade off , mark one side before you remove it ex: put an x on the side that is facing the wall. Take blade to a Johnstone supply house. Should be one near you somewhere, they are national. The guys there are usually very good at matching up fan blades. Make sure you keep the one you have with the mark on it. When you get home install the new blade the with the side out that was on the old blade. Hope that helps

SOURCE: Water Wheel won't keep turning
Replace the Idler and drive wheel. Even if it looks good the grove in the wheels get deeper over time until they don't work anymore. In a pinch a rubber band or two doubled up in the grove will make it work till you get the parts. Clean and replace the rim of the wheel once a year, replace the wheels once every few years and the thing will last 20+ years. The real reason they don't make them like this anymore is they would be missing out on the income of selling everyone wicks all the time. It's a far superior design. I kept a few of them running for my parents for years. I'm watching for one for my house, I'd pay tripple the cost of a modern new one for one of these in decent condition.
