The little spring fell off the water door, how to get it back in?

There is a little spring in the door where you add water. You click to door to open and the spring pops open the door (without it, it's kind of awkward opening it) and I have the spring, but cnanot figure out how to get it back in.

Any tips or pointers?

If you can't get the spring back it, put a piece of clear packaging tape folded over on itself on the opening edge of the door, that way you can grab it to open it and it's not obvious.

Humidifier doesn't provide more than 28% humidity

Hi Joe,

If you've got water flowing, but the pad is dry - I suspect that the motor is failing to turn the drum/filter. You might want to somehow mark the drum and watch or check it at short intervals of time to see if it moves or not. If the motor fails to rotate the wet portion of the drum/filter into the airflow - it will be difficult for it to raise the humidity of the space.

I found replacement motors as "#10" on this page: These motor looks awfully chintzy to cost $55 - $70 (depending on whether it is a 24V or 115V type). They look very much like a standard clock motor. If that's the case, you can probably replace yours (if defective) for a small fraction of that price - if yours is the 115V style anyway.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Problem with 2 ....1 on each furnance Aprilaire 700 Humidifiers.. no fan no soilinoid click red light on one when furnance is runing they both worked last year

Odd for both to be out. Check the water supply sometimes corrosion or scale will block the saddle piercing valve. Run it all the way into the pipe. Usually need to spin the little valve handle clockwise. Then back it all the way back to full open and reset humidifier power and furnace power. After that may want to crack open water supply connection right before the solenoid at each humidifier to make sure water is getting to them.

I have an Aprilaire 550 that is not working... don't know if the unit is getting water or not or if somethig else is wrong. What steps can I take to check this out. I tried turning the knob to test, then...

Do you hear the solenoid click. Furnace must be on and humidistat must be up. Do you have the ability to check for 24 volts (2 wires at solenoid). Loosen copper nut at solenoid to see if water is present. (Be careful about water spraying). Loosen nut on humidifier side of solenoid. Could be small blockage in copper line at solenoid.(There is a very small orifice there that could get clogged)
Could be Humidistat also. really need voltage meter to check wiring.

I don't think that my vicks V150 Humidifier is working correctly? I had it on all night and the orange light never turned Green and only a little water evaporated? I think that i remember it turning green...

Mine never turns green, always stay orange when on. As for the vapour, i add a little salt to the water and it works wonders, just about a tsp... good luck!

My desert springs humidifier doesn't work. I suspect that it's about 6 or 7 years old. The furnace is still running and I've tried all solutions that seem obvious to me. Is it possible that the motor has...

Well, let's see what service the unit has had in its 6 or 7 years of working--

When was the Humidifying pad last changed?
These usually have to be changed every year-- to get good performance from the humidifier...
So-- Have you looked inside the large door?-- what does the pad look like?

When the furnace is running, you should be able to open the humidifier door, and look in, (Air should be sucking INTO the door as you open it, if the unit is properly mounted in the return air duct work..) and if the humidistat is calling -- the motor should be turning the big wheel, and moisture is being added, as the wet surface is exposed to the air returning to the furnace. What do you see?

There is also a water sump, filled by a float valve-- is that valve admitting water into the sump?
Is the pad wicking up this water, and rotating into the air stream?

That pad is easily changed-- your hard ware store probably has replacement pads-- they can be sewn back on to the wheel, after removing the old one.

Let us know if we can help further-

The spring fell out of the cap and now water leaks out. Can you get a replacement tank cap?

go to and search using your model # (found on the bottom of the unit usually). i had to do this a few months ago.

Sunbeam Ultrasonic Humidifier, model: 697-6

Located My Manual:
Hope this helps!

1. Remove tank from base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled, or tap water. Water temp should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Return tank to base and let sit for a few minutes. Be sure the filling cap of the tank is tightened firmly.

2. Plug power cord into a 110-120V AC wall outlet only. Turn power switch to "on" position. Power light will illuminate. Turn mist nozzle until desired level is being released. Aim nozzle away from furniture and walls.

3. Always turn humidifier off when water runs* out. Unit will continue to operate when tank is empty.
*Humidifier will run up to 12 hrs on low; 6 hrs on high.

Place unit on level surface away from direct sunlight.

Mild bleach and water solution for cleaning, never detergent.
Clean every 3rd day during use. Clean after long storage
Humidity varies from room to room. Aim for 30 - 50% relative humidity. If windows/ walls fog or frost, reduce mist intensity. If room too humid, ventilate by opening door or window; adjust mist intensity.
