SOURCE: Noise when fan runs.

try cleaning the fan blades
dust/debris build up unbalances the fan and wears the bearings out
oil will only cure the problem for a short while - best option is to relace the fan

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Humidity too low

But by putting it in manual mose, you have to shut it sdown every season. With it in auto mode, and an outdoor sensor hooked up, you won't have to mess with it.

I need a fan motor for the 758 144140 Sears Kenmore Humidifier


I have a Kenmore Quiet Comfort Electronic humidifier, model 758.144140. Is missing filter holders, and float switch, so is inoperable. Motor works fine. Contact me if you want the motor - mnwilli@hotmail.com. No charge if you pay for shipping. I will include 2 filters, can include any other parts you want. Why the offer? Space in my house worth more than an inoperative appliance.

I can't find a replacement filter for Sears Kenmore humidifier model 758743303


Find someone with internet capabilities, and type in the words "Sears Parts" into your search engine. "Sears parts" has pictures and parts for most appliances. Be really sure you have your complete model number. They should show you a picture of your humidifier, and give you a part number. They can ship you the part, or you can go to "e-bay" and try to buy it.
Be blessed.

Model 60 controller sometimes clicks when humidifier is running, also furnace fan continues to run after humidity setting is reached.


The clicking is just the water valve opening. Normal. The other issue could be wiring. Some of these were easy to miswire.

The water not reaching the humidirier and the fan runs couinnuously


Hello, water not reaching the humidifier can be caused sediment buildup in the strainer of the solenoid valve, a faulty solenoid valve, sediment at the saddle valve, or no power to the solenoid valve. The fan will run continously if the relay that engages the fan is stuck as it is gettimg a constant 120 volts.

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-

Kenmore Humidifier 14114 - the fan suddenly stopped running. Changed fliter and water, unplugged the unit, changed dial to highest humidity level - the unit will not run.


Hi

Please turn off the power to the unit and unplug it. Now check the fuse inside the unit, make sure its fine and not burnt If fuse seems OK then inspect the connections to the fan and make sure the wires are not cut. Also, inspect the control for any burnt components, use a multimeter to confirm. Hope this helps... Please post back with complete model# if you need more information.

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!

Thermostat Will NOT Turn OFF


Most of these have a flag switch which starts then when the duct air goes through. If that fan switch is stuck it wil not turn off.
