Fan motor seems to be running backwards. Installed in 1999.Always maintaned. Overall worked OK until this past year. Many problems with water leakage. When I opened and checked fan direction, it was moving...


The fan on the model 700 does rotate backwards compared to your typical fan operation. This fan will pull air from the duct verses pushing air into the duct. There are several things that may cause your humidifier to leak. The most known reason for leaking is the water panel/filter is not being changed frequently enough which should be at least once every heating season. You also want to confirm that you are utilizing an authentic Aprilaire water panel.
  • Is the Feed Tube tightened or is there a crack in the tube?
· Is the base of the scale control insert sitting firmly in the drain spud at the base of the housing?
· Does the bottom of the scale control insert have a taper to it to direct water to the drain spud?
· Is the Scale control insert positioned correctly? The scale control insert has a front and a back. The back of the water distribution tray has an indentation in it to allow for clearance of the nozzle, which is attached to the top of the base. If reversed, and forced into place, the water distribution tray will break off the nozzle attached to the water feed tube and potentially the housing, causing water to leak
· Is there a gap between the top of the water panel and the water distribution tray for air to go through?
· Is the colored dot on the water panel, up?
· Are there signs of entrainment? Mineral build-up on fan blade, shroud, inside of cover?

Fan runs but no change in the humidity. I can run the fan at the highest setting and go a week or longer with out refilling the water jugs


I have same problem. Water does not come out of the bottles. One bottle empties first. the valve at bottom may be too tight. I loosened the left bottle cap and that released enough water to fill the tray and get to the wick element. I don't know why or how it knows one bottle is empty and changes over to the other, or how it only meters out enough water to fill the tray since there is no moving parts.

Need to clean the filter


http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/vicks/v3100.html

This is the link to your manual.
Daily Maintenance
1.
Turn switch to OFF position and unplug the cord from wall outlet.
2. Lift the Water Tank from Base. Carefully remove the Water Tray from the base being
careful not to damage the delicate Wicking Filter. Empty excess water from the Water Tray
without removing the Wicking Filter. Remove the Tank Cap and drain any water from the
Water Tank. Rinse the Water Tank with lukewarm water after each use. Wipe accessible
surfaces of the Water Tank and Water Tray clean with a soft, damp cloth.
3. Do not immerse the Base in water. For storage, wipe dry with a soft, clean cloth. Keep
water away from the Air Outlet.
4. Do not leave water in the Water Tank or Water Tray when unit is not in use as it may
result in the build up of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output
efficiency of the humidifier. Please note that if water remains in the Water Tank for more
than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible.
5. Replace Water Tray with Wicking Filter. Then replace the Tank. Humidifier is now ready for
use.
Weekly Maintenance
Removing Scale
1.
Remove the Water Tank and empty any remaining water from the Water Tank.
2. Turn switch to the ON position, either low or high speed, and operate Humidifier until the
Wicking Filter is thoroughly dry.
3. Turn switch to the OFF position and unplug the cord from wall outlet.
4. Remove Wicking Filter from the Water Tray by carefully lifting straight up taking care not to
tear filter.
5. Remove the Water Tray from the Base. Fill Water Tray with undiluted white vinegar. Let
stand for 20 minutes.
6. Dampen soft, clean cloth or sponge with undiluted white vinegar and wipe out Water Tray
to remove scale. Do not use soap, detergents or abrasive cleaners.
7. Rinse the Water Tray thoroughly in clean warm water or put in top shelf of dishwasher to
remove scale and vinegar before disinfecting the Water Tray.

Disinfecting the Water Tray and Tank
1.
Fill tank with 1 teaspoon of household bleach in 1 gallon of water. Let stand twenty (20)
minutes, shaking vigorously every few minutes, drain and rinse with clean water until the
bleach smell is gone. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
2. Wipe the Water Tray with a soft cloth dampened in the bleach and water solution. Rinse
the Water Tray thoroughly or place in dishwasher before proceeding.
3. Wipe all exterior surfaces of the Base with a soft, dry cloth. Do not immerse the Base in
water or use water to clean the base. An electric shock may result or the humidifier may
be damaged.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Not getting enough humidity in the air


There are 3 things to check on the humidifier. Check the metal mesh screen, is it wet after the humidistat is call? If it is dry the water solenoid my not be opening or the nozzle is plugged. The circulating fan blows air through the wet screen to add humidity. Does the fan spin when the humidistat is calling? There is an intake and exhaust on the humidifier. Check that the metal was cut out properly when the humidifier was installed to allow air to feely circulate?
