If the leakage started at water tank, you may use silicon glue which is used to repair aquariums.

SOURCE: water leaking from the bottom of the humidifier

Make sure the bottom port on the humidifier is seated properly in drain port. Make sure your drain line is not obstructed.

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: Water is leaking from the bottom of the unit

The tune up kit that I ordered arrived on Friday and I installed most of it on Friday night. While it is nice to have a new frame and the distribution panel and I think the price of the whole kit was fair considering it comes with the parts and 2 water panels, the fix was really simple.

The kit came with the water distribution tube with with a new blue orifice (Aprilaire #4232) already inserted. This orifice is in the end of the plastic tube at the solenoid end. When I removed the old water distribution tube, the old orifice was not really dark blue anymore but kind of a light blue and was deteriorating from 12 years of exposure to the chemicals in the water. What should have been a pin-hole size opening in the orifice was up to about 2mm or a little more so the orifice was letting way too much water through.

If anyone else has this leaking problem, and your orifice is several years old, I would check that first. It is a $2.75 part and may be the cause of the leak. The whole feed tube kit is only $8.75 and includes the feed tube, nozzle, orifice, ferule, compression nut, strainer so if you need to replace the orifice, I would order the whole feed tube kit for a little bit more.

Hope this helps,
Roger...

SOURCE: water leaking out of bottom

A leaking humidifier is a sign that the unit's filter needs to be cleaned/changed. I had the exact same problem on this model.

Sunbeam humidifier 3502


Tanks are no longer available. Search for used units on your local craigslist.com. This model was previously made by Holmes and tanks were the same on HM3500, HM3501. Search "Holmes humidifier" then search "sunbeam humidifier" on your local craigslist.org

most bigger towns will have one or two show up. Keep an eye out. People who move to a house (or install) a whole house humidifier sell their old units. We have two of the exact model and I bought a new in box 3501 from a Craigslist posting in September 2013!

I dont know how to add water to a sunbeam humidifier model#scm808


Hallo
Can you not find the owner manual?
The best I can do is advice you to go online and find MANUALSONLINE.COM. There look for the brand name "sunbeam" then the product humidifier.
In the one in this house you lift and take the filter out and water in.
Good luck

My sunbeam humidifier doesn't work


Do you mean Dehumidifier? A machine that takes the humidity out of the air. If this is what you mean and you hear the fan motor working with no water dripping then the problem is that the coil which holds freon gas has leaked out the gas and can be recharged again with the leak fixed of course. Depending how old the unit is you may be better off buying a new model. Repairs can be costly. Hope this helps!

Your water is too hard. Get a water softener or use distilled (not purified) water.

How often do i change the water in the sunbeam humidifier and can i put in some bleach to cleanse the air?


Bleach is not recommended, a mild detergent should work and you should just be adding water in the humidifier as it uses it. The humidifier should be drained when there is no more need for humidity
