Question about Aprilaire 700 Humidifier
There is water dripping from the unit. I had someone replace the hose that is attached to the unit because the line was clogged. I thought the problem was solved, but the water continues to drip.
Per Aprilaire: DO NOT REVERSE FAN BLADES ON APRILAIRE 700.
Contacted Aprilaire this morning they said that the fan should indeed suck through the water panel, not blow.
He said if your water panel is upside down inside the plastic shrowd, it will leak. He told me that the water panel is shaped like an upside down christmas tree.... the water runs to the inside most core of the panel, not to the outside. If it's upside down, it runs to the outside instead.
I will check my water panel tonight. If it's installed correctly, I'm going to leave my fan blades reversed.

I discovered that the problem was simply a cracked, brittle lead hose and after replacing it, solved the problem. Thanks for the reply.

I don't have a solution but I also have the same probem with my 760. It worked for 5 years, then the problems started. What a pain! I replaced the water panel, cleaned out any calcum buildup, etc and no luck. There must be a defect!
If I can't solve the problem sooon I will buy any brand of humidifier but Aprilaire.

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.
