Question about Essick Air Humidifiers

Open Question

My Essick Air MA1201 humidifier runs continuously, and only the bottom half of the filter is wet - it's not wicking up at all. Is this normal, or is something set up incorrectly?

Those filters don't last forever! Whenever I had that problem, I just replaced the filter. (The fresh filters also contain some kind of anti-bacterial or anti-fungal, since you're not supposed to add anything to the water which would spray into the air.) My problem has been finding new filters--does Sears still carry them? (The small one I was in recently does NOT.)

SOURCE: Carrier SBP Humidifier is not working

I would suggest turning up the humidistat (usually located on the the return air duct to a higher setting and listening for a "click" noise on the supply valve. If you do hear a click but dont see / hear any water than the culprit is likely the valve itself.

SOURCE: It would seem I can't get my humidifier to work.It

If you are using large amounts of water and it is not leaking anywhere than I would be inclined to think that your humidity indicator is not correct. Do you notice any differences since you have been using it,such as less static electricity,skin and hair not as dry as usual or house plants looking better if you have any. Also not knowing what area you live in I don't have any idea what your normal atmospheric temperature or humidity are. Other factors to consider is how well your house is insulated,number of doors and windows and how many times doors are opened. Without knowing these things your humidifier may be doing all it can. Hope this is of some help.Thank

3 year old Essick tower D46720 sat during off season. Cleaned, filled and plugged in today and will not turn on. Lights are on; nothing happens.


The red water level light was on even though both tanks were full. The white float behind the filter WAS stuck to the bottom of the tank. I just moved it to its floating position and voila! it is working.

Why ismy Essick humidifier registering over 20 on the humidity level. I have changed the filters several times using high end filters?? I also have wet the filters


Sorry to ask, for clarification is this a dehumidifier or a humidifier? Do you want to add water to your air or take water out of your air. A reading of 20 for a humidifier sounds pretty good to me. I didn't know there were filters on a humidifier, I thought most of the time you just filled the tank with distilled water, it got heated and vapor came out. I guess a filter to keep airborne bacteria from floating into the water tank would make some sense, maybe a water filter to pre-filter the water going into your humidifier, but I don't think any filter is your problem. If you are trying to remove water from your air, then a dehumidifier is needed and you just have to empty the tank when it's full.

We have an Essick Air Humidifier Model EA1407. One water bottle empty's every day. Is this normal?


Ours empties both bottles in one day. That is normal for a dry house. If your problem is that only one bottle empties and not the other, make sure the bottle is properly positioned on the bottom cap valve. To check this, put in only the bottle that doesn't empty by itself when the console is empty. The bottle should "gurgle" as it starts filling the bottom of the console. If it doesn't, re-position it until it does.

How and when do i clean the filter


I assume when you say FILTER-- you mean the wicking pad, right?
This is the pad that absorbs the water, and rotates into the path of the air stream- thus increasing the humidity in the room..

I just did a quick search on the internet, and I came across a review on this humidifier--- Here is what she says:

Usually we start running it in late October. It is December now and we have bought THREE pads already this year. One pad should last at least for the few months we use it each year.

If you are fussy, you might want to change it 2 or 3 times in a winter-- others might last thru the whole winter-- Obviously it will have less mold, and will evaporate better, the more often you change it.

I can't close the ends of the wick/filter which I believe diminishes the humidifier efficiency. What can I do?


Don't worry about it. The slight gap won't make a big difference in the unit's operation.

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
