Need online instruction manual for hankscraft humidifier model 240


I found this. There are no manuals available on line.

Here we have a used working HANKSCRAFT / GERBER COOL VAPOR HUMIDIFIER Model 240 WITH INSTRUCTION MANUAL and STEAMED CLEANED. This humidifier, by Gerber, has a 1 3/5 Gallon Capacity, and produces cool vapor for up to 18 - 20 hours in low, medium or high settings. The humidifier works great , does not have the directional nozzle included but does come with a copy of the instructions.

Have aprilaire #760 ,changed water panel, and turned furnace on and water started pouring out of the bottom of furnce? lots of water---


Typically, we find that the most common reason that you start to see leaking from the humidifier is that the water panel is not changed frequently enough. We do recommend that the water panel be changed once every humidifying season. We find a majority of our customers do this maintenance typically at the start of the humidifying season.

Here are the things to check when troubleshooting a power humidifier, which is leaking:

1.Position Of Unit On Plenum
Is the unit level (let to right)?
Is it plumb (front to back)?

2.Feed Tube
Is the Feed Tube tightened or is there a crack in the tube?

3.Position Of Scale control insert-
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

4.Water Panel Assembly-
Are there aluminum strands hanging out of the scale control insert?
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?
Is there a consistent coating on the Water panel, or are there shinny spots or clumps of coating?

5.Water Entrainment (Water Blowing out of the Humidifier)-
Are there signs of entrainment? Mineral build-up on fan blade, shroud, inside of cover?
Is the static pressure in the plenum over .4w.c.? If so, entrainment and leaking could occur.

6.Missing Orifice
If there is no orifice in the unit, the water entering the system could flood the panel. To check
for proper water flow, a quart jar should fill at the drain line in about 2 ½ minutes for a red or blue orifice, 5 minutes for a white or yellow orifice.

7.Drain line-
Is the drain line plugged?
Does it have a good downward slope?
Is it teed with any other drain lines?

If the above items do not resolve the existing leaking we would recommend contacting the customer service line at 800-334-6011 for further technical support.

Our HCM-640bw Honeywell humidifier will leak water onto the floor. If I fill the tank and let it sit without turning it on, no leaking. When it runs for about two hours it leaks bad. Any ideas on how to...


Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.

No instruction manual


FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.

LEAKS


Try to just fill the tank with water and set it upright on a table. If it leaks, the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. Order one at kaz.com (search using model#). I have had this tank leak if the special cap is not sitting properly on the base. Make sure that the steam tower is properly locked in place before you place the water tank in the reservoir. The cap on the tank has a spring release that has to be correctly lined up so it only releases water when the water level in the reservoir drops.

Honeywell Humidifier HUT102m


I've been having problems with this unit since purchase in December 2007.

To fill, unscrew the cap with the spring loaded plunger. It may be tight, but it has two slots which you can turn like a screwhead using something wide enough (eg, a spoon) for leverage.

My problem is that this thing leaks badly. The fit of the cartridge is terribly designed. The one supplied is different from the one depicted in the unhelpful manual, which is silent on where the cartridge should fit. It will fit in one spot, but it will not sit flush with floor of the unit; it rocks and the water holding top rocks with it. The supplied cartridge appears to be an attempted and unsuccessful fix of a problematic design.

Even without the cartridge, this unit still leaks.

A web search shows others complaining about leaking. Hate to say it, but another example of lousy American design... but it sure is pretty!

Haven't been able to raise the manufacturer "Kaz" on the phone.

Good luck!

Bionaire BCM645 Cool Mist Humidifier leaking water


There is probably a crack somewhere in the unit. Not likely, but worth visually inspecting closely.

Try filling it with less water and run it and see what happens.

Filling humidifier


On the Vicks v-3100 the water tank should lift off of the unit. Flip it over and there is a lid. Open the lid and fill the tank. Once you've filled it back up, put the lid back on. Flip the tank over to make sure there are no leaks, then put it back on the humidifier.

Note: It's very important to check to make sure the tank isn't leaking before you put it back on the humidifier, if it is, it will flood the reservoir, in turn causing water to leak out of the bottom of the humidifier (which is one of the major complaints about the 3100).
