SOURCE: dry house with furnace mounted humdifier

Is the furnace fan set on auto or on. You will get better humidity if you keep the fan on. It won't add much to your electric bill because many of the newer furnaces operate the fan on DC voltage. Try it!

I have a Whirlpool AD70U dehumidifier with type 3 controls. I have the fan set to auto and the humidity to normal. The unit drains into a floor drain. It seems dry in my basement yet the fan seems to run...

If it's set for Continuous Mode the fan will run all the time. It does so, in an effort to keep recycling the air. Once it senses a rise in humidity, the compressor turns ON. Check the settings, to be sure it's where you think. Also, check and clean the air filter, if necessary. Before removing the filter, be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. If you wash the filter, it most be completely dry, before reinstalling it. Do Not operate the unit without the air intake filter installed.

Make sure you are maintaining at least 12" - 18" clear air space around the entire unit.

To further assist you, in case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual. I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

I hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Humdifier not working after replacing filter. Have replaced before without a problem. It has been installed for over 6 years.

Hello, check to see if you are getting 24 volts to the solenoid valve. if you are and the solenoid does not open to let water through the solenoid is bad and must be replaced. It is also possible that one of the low voltage wires may of came loose when you were changing the filter, check to make sure that the wires are all tight. Let me know what you find.

We have an Aprilaire whole house humidifier that is functioning, but it does not have the ability to humidify our home. We have 3000 sq ft. When the heat comes on, the temperature must be high enough then...

You can turn the blower on so that the humidifier will run more... there should be a manual on detting on your t-stat that will run the blower constantly. The humdifier should be wired to go on withthe blower.
The other option would be to install a stem humidifier which will produce more humidity faster...

Why does so much scum and mold develop in the water tray and on the filter ?

Mold and algea form in the tray and filter of drum style humidifiers because humidifiers are a warm damp place, perfect breeding grounds! I suggest updating to a drain through style humdifier, as it does not allow water to sit stagnent in a tray. Hope this helps

Water leak

Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.

My humidifier isnt working properly, it is not using any water

Make sure you soak the wic with COLD water and don't ring it out. Make sure when your putting the tank back in that you don't spill any water into the fan vent. If you get even a splash into the vent, it makes that awful loud motor noise. If this happens just let it dry out on it's own(over night). Also try cleaning the wic tray. It tends to get slimmy from the water sitting in it. If you ever see that your tank is empty, wet your wic when you refill it. Make sure you rinse and wet the wic EVERYTIME you refill the tank. The wic dries out fast and can start smelling pretty bad if you don't rine it regularly.

Cool Mist Humidifier Filter Drying Out

How long are you going between filter changes?

A filter that stops wicking water up and turns orange/yellow is one full of deposits.

It sounds like you have hard water. How are you filtering this water before you use it? Distilled water is the best.

Replace the filter. They don't last forever. Mine normally last a month to a month and a half.

Good Luck
