Question about Kenmore 14410 Humidifier

1 Answer

Temp We changed our filter when we took out the humidifier one week ago and it worked fine. For the past day or two we have it set for 45% humidity and it doesn't seem to go over 37% no matter if we have it on auto, low, high, etc. what is the problem. The water is full, new filter, seems to sound ok.

Re: temp

My guess is that you are trying to bring the humidity up too high. There is a chart in the manual that suggests where to set the humidity at based on outdoor temps.

I try to keep the level at 30-35% in the winter.

Hope this helps.

I can't tell if it is working. The humidity reading in the house is 20%. When I open the humidifier, I see that the water is trickling over the filter but it doesn't seem to ever get saturated.

Hello, is there water going down the drain tube, if so then the humidifier is working. The pad does not really get saturated the water just trickles on the pad and the the fan blows it into the air duct. your outside air temp determines what your humidistat should be set at.

Outside Temperature -10 F 0 F 10 F 20 F 30 F Recommended Indoor
Relative Humidity

Aprilaire manual humcontrol 4655 hum 560 .when control clicks works fine.move dial to outside temp never works changed 4655 twice i have 28\r\nvolts ac all the time

When humidistat is at ouside temperature that may be a lower humidity setting than is in your home. Doesn't sound like there is a problem. If it is too dry in home you can set it above ouside temp to turn on. The ouside temp setting is estimate that you will not get condensation on windows.

Does setting the dial to a higher number mean there will be more humidity in the system or lower humidity?

By setting the humidistat to a higher setting means that there will be more humidity produced by the humidifier. Depending on what the outside temp is that will determine what setting it should be set at.

It would seem I can't get my humidifier to work.It is a Essick Air ED11800.I have got it against a interior wall away from any heating vents,changed the filter,and set the humidity level at 60%,ran it for...

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

I have lost my manual. readout on the digital display is CF. humidifier operates fine. what does the display CF mean?

It means Change Filter.

However, assuming that you have done that in the recent past, you probably want to know more. I'm not sure how this actually works (that is why it shows CF). I saw it for the first time after 2 or 3 years of using my humidifier. (And I had just changed the filter a week or so previously).

You may have to turn the unit off/on or even unplug it to clear the message, then it should operate normally.

The higher the % of RH, (relative humidity), the more humid the house will be. I would disregard the temp part of the dial, and focus more on your comfort. Adjust it up daily until you reach a satisfactory humidity level. Hope this helps

Water only runs with humidistat in test/reset mode. Aprilaire 600 with an Aprilaire 56 Automatic Humidistat, both about 5 years old. Water line is clear, and test mode runs fine for the 1 minute interval....

you need to make sure your humidity level in the house isnt higher then what your humidifier will provide at any givin outdoor temp. this chart is in the owners manual. you cant remove the wires going to the ODS or it will give an error unless you have a resistor to put in its place. Anyway if the humidifier works in test mode according to AA it works so you may have higher humidity than you think, the highest your gonna get is 45% as the temp outside drops it will allow less humidity so it doesnt cause window condinsation (property damage) here is a copy of the chart. the #s on the left are the dial setting

Outdoor Temperature (°F)

if it comes on when turned to RESET then its probably fine. The humidity may be higher than the highest setting on the stat. If you leave it on test reset it will not work .

Aprilaire 500 - Everything works, but humidity will not increase!

You should take out that aprilaire and throw it in the garbage or return it to who you got it from. Ask them why they didn't offer you the best humidifiers available. The only way to truly control humidity in your home without running your heat is a steam humidifier. Autoflo makes a good one also honeywell makes a new one. I have installed a honeywell tru steam in my own home and a few customers it hasn't lived up to its advertising. The auto flo has never given me any problems with customers.

I had this problem several years ago. In order for the water to flow, the outside temperature sending unit must indicate to the controller that it is less than 60F. If not, the unit will not operate outside of test mode. Check the temp outside where your sending unit is (could the sun be heating that side of the house?) and ensure that the circuit to the sending unit is working. I had a bad wire splice inside a wire nut stopping the circuit. Took me a long while to figure it out.

If the outside temp and your sending unit circuit is ok, I wish you luck on your troubleshooting.
