SOURCE: humidifier making noise.not steaming

This is an indication that the power supply has issues. You would have to take it apart to check and see what is wrong.

Noisy start-up


If it is a vibrating motor noise, then some oil may help but make sureit doesn't drop into the tank. The little Motors used in these things have a limited lifetime and bearings and corrosion a of insulated iron plates that the copper wire of the motor coils wrap around do tend to corrode and lose their efficiency.

Otherwise, try a bit of foam padding to isolate the tank from the motor assembly - there might be some slight vibration there.

Humidifier makes noise


I reckon you should toss it out as you don't really need it as it makes the air damp and mold will start forming inside the walls and create a health hazard.

Vibration in water feed


I have a General Aire humidifier on my furnace. I was having the same issue with vibration noise. I took the solenoid off and took it apart. There is a part that had a screen and a very small hole. I cleaned all the parts in my ultrasonic cleaner. The I reassembled the solenoid. It had an electromagnet that was held on by one nut. I reinstalled the solenoid mechanism and started the system. I had way better water flow, but still some vibration. I tightened the nut holding the solenoid and electromagnet together and the vibration stopped.

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...


Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist


According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

Noisy humidifier


A noisy humidifier may be the result of an unlubricated fan motor or a drive mechanism clogged by debris. Periodically clean the water reservoir, fan, and nozzle to ensure that they are clean and working properly. To keep your humidifier working smoothly and efficiently, lubricate the fan motor bearings with SAE #20 oil. Be sure to consult your owner?s manual for proper care and maintenance procedures. If it seems loose, vibrating parts are causing the noise: 1) Disconnect the power. 2) Remove the cover and look for any vibrating parts. Tighten screws, if necessary. 3) Wiggle the fan to see if it is loose on its shaft. If it is, tighten the mounting fasteners. Lubricate the motor's bearings if suggested in your owner's manual. 4) If it still makes noise, call an appliance repairperson or take the unit into an appliance repair shop.
