I have a 1099 general powered humidifier making a loud humming noise.


there are no moving parts in that humidifier other than the solenoid and it only moves open or closed are you sure the noise isn't caused by something else, maybe something close or even the furnace

I have an Aprilair humidifier that started making a loud humming/buzzing noise. The water runs OK but the soloniod is burning hot to the touch. Is this normal?


Yeah they do need to be replaced from time to time. Make sure you get a water test kit and check your water hardness. You may need a whole home water filter if it is outside of normal ranges. A pretty easy DIY project and relatively inexpensive at the big box stores

Hm2612-u is making really loud noise when running


Best solution is to take it back to the retailer for warranty repair or exchange.

My vaporizer is making a quiet bubbling/gurgling noise. This is only the second time that I've used it, but I can't seem to find the instruction manual. What could this mean?


Hi,
That is very normal...the sound is the water being turned to steam which is the "vapor" that comes out...
Everything is okay and perfectly normal.

Motor is making loud noise and won't blow a lot of vapor


If you feel like trying take it apart and oil both ends of the motor shafts with Turbine Oil or 3in1 electric motor oil then you may be able to get life back into it. Some oils come with a long straw you can slip out of the bottle to reach inacessable areas or devices you wish to not open to save time, like when you can see the motor shaft areas ( each end of motor) and oil them that way. These can be saved sometimes but if the shafts are too scored up and have gumed up factory lubrication then the fix won't last a long time.

Vapor is not coming for sunbeam humidifier model 686


from all the information that i have come across. the unit is a cool mist. the vapor won't be apparent for the coolmist. now if it was a warm mist there is something internal that isn't making it cause any vapor. but if you done all the normal troubleshooting and nothing still and it has a filter it will more likely be a cool mist. warm mists don't have filters

Aprilaire 760 furnace humidifier makes a loud screeching sound.


A bad circuit board should not make any noises. A bad solenoid valve could make a loud buzzing noise. If the noise is a squealing noise then you have defective bearings in the blower motor.
If you disconnect the low voltage wiring from the solenoid valve and you still hear the noise, then its not the solenoid valve.

Loud noise


Replace the water valve... It"s vibrating when closing. Do you have hot water feeding the unit?

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:
