Makes a dripping water sound continously - Hunter CareFree Plus 33222 Humidifier

    I have the same problem. My Hunter humidifier makes a very loud water dripping sound. It wakes us up out of a sound sleep.

    I had never taken the humidifier apart, only removed the tank to fill it with water, so this is not a problem with the humidifier being assembled incorrectly - unless it was assembled wrong in the factory. It did not make this noise until we had been using it for a few weeks.

    I have tried cleaning it as the instructions say, but nothing has helped.

If your water is not now chlorinated, try adding a few drops of diluted bleach to the water each time you refill.  Slime might be bacteria.

Make sure the humidifier is on a flat, level surface.

Most likely you do not have the humidifier assembled properly. Mine did that and I found out that not all of the parts were fully in their final position.

Problem: My water always has nasty particles floating in the water and the inside of the humidifier has a snot-like substance on the inside. The humidifier is supposed to be care-free for life time. What's the deal?

My Aprilaire 600 is dripping from the front toward the bottom... Can I fix it myself or do I need my maintenance guy?

Hello, check to make sure that the drain line is not blocked, this could cause the water to back up in the humidifier and leak, also make sure the water panel is clean and free of any mineral deposits.

I have a whole house Honeywell E365 humidifier which is constantly flowing water to the pad, even when the heat is not on. What could be the cause ?

Hello, the most common reason this happens is because the solenoid valve is bad and remains open allowing water to flow continously regardless if the furnace is on or off. I assume you have either a sail switch or current sensing relay energizing the humidifier when the heat is on, if not thats another reason it would run continously.

Honeywell HE260 leaks somewhere

Neither, even if the solenoid or humidistat stick, it should always drain properly. Is the unit mounted on the cold air return duct or the supply plenum? If it's mounted on the supply plenum, the water panel might be getting blown forward and spilling the water. High efficient furnaces also can leak water on the floor if its drain is restricted. If hum. is mounted on return duct make sure drain is clear by blowing through it. On Honeywell hum's I've seen the rubber hose from the solenoid valve to the distributor tray leak too, check the rubber 1/4" hose.

Aprilaire 700 leaks water from bottom of case

Install new water panels yearly. On the new panel make sure that the painted dot on the edge of the panel is on the top when you install it.
Always clean the distribution tray and the frame. Make sure the notch on the edge of the distribution tray faces away from the furnace. Make sure the humidifier was installed level. Keep the drain tube opening clear. Insure there is no blockages in the drain tube.
Good luck

Continous water flow on a 1042lh humidifer

theholts220 - Sounds like they needed to install a bit larger transformer . You can also buy a A 50 Sensing relay that attaches to the wires for your motor and when you turn on the furnace it will allow the power to go to the humidistat. Very strange though they do not use a lot of power. Check and make sure the wires are not pinched or touching metal somewhere.

TLuzzo - The humidistat seems to be working when you turn it down. The wires for the solenoid should be hooked up to your furnace circuit board. The instruction manual will tell you where. If you dont have a spot on your circut board the A 50 sensing reley is they way to go. They are inexpensive

Water dripping from unit

if the water panel needs to be replaced , this can happen. instead of going through the panel , water will run on the outside of the panel and drip through the seems on the humidifier cover. make sure the plastic hose that goes into the water panel is inserted into the water panel.
