I am battling the same trouble with this. I have re-booted the unit several times, and it is not a panacea. I am currently working on it, and will report here my findings.

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!

Power light is on, water is up to fill line, dials are set to max humidity and fan speed, but fans do not spin. Tried to spin fans manually but they will not spin on their own. Left fan stopped spinning...


Do the motors feel warm-- maybe even HOT?-- Like they have electric current, but the bearings might be seizing up?
You mentioned one stopped spinning awhile ago--- and the other one was OK-

It sounds like the bearings are dry and worn on the fans-- (How old is the humidifier?)

The bearings CAN be cleaned up and lubricated, if you are into tearing a motor apart, and servicing the bearings-- Are you ready for that? You will have to remove the motors from their mounting, remove the fans, split the end bells, and clean and lubricate the bearings deep inside.

Let us know how much further you want to go-

Aprilaire 700. It works on fan on mode but not otherwise. It's never on and the humidity reading is always way below the setting. It should turn on automatically to bring the humidity up, right?


It appears your Aprilaire model 700 is wired to only operate when your HVAC fan is operated by your thermostat. Your HVAC installer can wire the humidifier control to operate the humidifier during a heat call, fan call or to turn on the fan when there is a need for humidification. Please contact your HVAC installer to have them change the wiring.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service

Everything seems to be working - installed a new water panel today - but the humidity level remains at about 30%.


Hi,
If it is very cold out or if the humidity was very low to start with then it will take quite a long time to get the humidity back up. Do you have your thermostat set to run the fan continuously? This will keep the air flowing over the panel and bring the humidity back sooner.If you allow it to just cycle with the heat it will take a very long time to catch up.
Turn the fan switch on your t-stat to "on" and then it will circulate air all the time and help you out faster.

Kenmore Humidifier not operating?


Turn the unit off, lift the fan assembly off the base, and push the connector together that goes to the float switch on the bottom of the fan motor. If you hold the switch in with your finger (careful not to get into the fan blades) and turn the unit on, the F indication should go away. F (as in Fill), apparently, means the base has no water. The plastic tube that sticks up out of the base floats on the water and pushes the switch. Put it back together, it should work!

Aprilaire 600 humidity level too low


you may try running your blower 100% of the time.this should allow the humidifier to stay on even when your not heating. once the humidity level gets to where you want it, you may be able to put the fan selector back to auto. also you mentioned you have a variable blower. this is great if it is set up to run at approx. 20% fan speed when it is not heating or cooling. at 20% you can circulate enough air through the house to humidify without being able to hear the noise of the blower. it will really increase the comfort level of the house if you tend to have hot and cool spots. if it was not set up this way, contact the installer and ask if they can do this for you.

The power light on my Bemis 4D-7800 humidifier flashes.


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
