You are describing a dehumidifier. The purpose of a humidifier is to add moisture to the air.

Use a container of known capacity, e.g., measuring cup or milk bottle, to fill the humidifier. When full, you can estimate capacity.

Where do I add the vaporizing steam liquid


I believe that you just have to add it with the water in the container. Here is a video detailing the product and its use.

All the water in the humidifier leaked all over the floor. What would cause this? there was a filter in it


It sounds like the water container wasn't placed on the unit correctly. Need more information as to what type unit you have, before making an informed decision.

Do you feel like looking at the humidifier yourself?
You can open the door on the unit, while the furnace is running--
The humidifier is usually installed in the return air duct, so there will be a sucking of air into the open door, when you open it.

There is usually a large wheel, with a wet pad wrapped around the circumference.
This wheel rotates slowly, and picks up water from the sump-- does everything look and sound quiet as it runs? -- The float valve has to open and close, to c ontrol the leve of water in the sump-- (The pool of water the wheel runs the mat thru--
Possibly the valve shutting off, could make a plumbing BANG-- you could duplicate that, by lifting the float mechanism and stopping the water-- does that make the noise?

If you can reach and operate the Humidistat control from near the humidifier, do so a few time-- or Have someone cycle the humidistat a few times, and you listen for that sound--
Is it in the humidifier itself, or the duct work nearby?

It might be that the humidistat wheel scrapes against the side of the sheet metal duct work? -- Sounds travel a long ways in metal duct work!

Let us know if this helps

My 550 is bone dry. I've cleaned the small in line screen blew out the line. How do I know if its the selinoid or humidistat?


Turn off the water to the humidifier

Disconnect the water line to the inlet water valve (the solenoid), catch any excess water or drips in a small container

Turn the water back on slowly and see if water flows through the open line (the one you just disconnected - catch the water in a small bucket)

If you have water to the valve, it's probably the solenoid valve - you can test this by reconnecting the water line and turning the humidistat all the way up. You should hear a click as the solenoid tries to open. If it clicks and no water comes out it's the valve. If there is no water to the valve, you'll need to determine the reason(s). Although not every water valve has one, check for a plugged inlet screen at the entry to the water valve (solenoid)
Sometimes the small line tap valves commonly used with humidifiers can plug up or malfunction. If you try to repair or replace the tap valve, make sure the water is turned off.
If no click, it could be the humidistat or there is no power to the unit.
If the humidistat is bad, you won't hear any click and no power will be sent to the solenoid valve. In that case, the humidistat may be defective.

Depending on your comfort level and knowledge, you can try applying power directly to the valve by bypassing the humidistat, but only try this if you are comfortable working with electricity. The voltage should be around 24 volts (in the USA) , which is low, but requires some knowledge.

Humidifier leaves a crusty dark substance in water


SPECIAL NOTES
Discoloration/Black Particles
After use, the water residue in the bottom of the container may contain black particles, and, in
some areas the water and the bottom of container may discolor. These conditions are normal and
do not effect the purity of the steam or medicine. The container is easily cleaned with soap and
water. Rinse and dry the container after cleaning.

This was taken from the manual that comes with the humidifier...
