    why is it not recommended? does using the filter affect the ability of the humidifier to produce and project mist? i have no allergies, keep my house clean and i run filters on all my furnace/a/c devices. filters cost a fortune and i was wondering if i could just run my little 1 gallon humidifiers without filters.

Need manual for Holmes humidifier model HM-220. Don’t see replacement filter numbers on Amazon. Is there another that will work


For a manual, try Googling (holmes)(HM-220)(manual) without parens.
Fixya is unable to advise regarding filter interchangeability.

CF is displayed on my humidifier...what is that?


Check Filter Indicator

The ability of any humidifier to efficiently supply humidity output relies heavily on the

condition of the filter. As the filter loads with impurities it gradually loses its wicking

capability. When this happens, moisture output is reduced and the humidifier has to work

longer to satisfy the selected setting. This humidifier has a check filter reminder timed to

appear after 720 hours of operation. When the Check Filter (CF) message is displayed,

disconnect the power cord and check the condition of the filter. If a build-up of deposits or

severe discoloration is evident replace the filter to restore maximum efficiency. The CF
message is reset when the humidifier is plugged back in.

How do I change the filter, (Holmes hm7204 Humidifier) Where does it go?


REPLACING THE FILTERS
Through normal use, waterborne minerals and sediment
become trapped in the wick filters. The harder your
water, the greater the amount of minerals in the water,
and the more often you will be able to monitor the life of
your filters in your humidifier.
You will be able to monitor the life of the filters in your
humidifier by checking the FilterCheck® Indicator. After
60 minutes of use, FilterCheck® Indicator will move and
indicate your filters condition. New filters will register in
the section reading Good filter. After frequent use of your
humidifier, the FilterCheck® Indicator will let you know
when the filters need to be changed, see Figure 2.
When the needle is in the CHANGE section, this means the
proper amount of moisture is not getting into your air due
to the excessive minerals and sediment that have become
trapped on your filters. At this point, you should replace your
filters. It is important to change your filters as
indicated to obtain stated performance level.
To replace the filter, follow the steps below:
1. Turn the unit off and disconnect from the electrical
outlet.
2. Remove the tank and main housing to access the base.
3. Remove the wick holder from the base of the humidifier.
4. Remove each individual wick and discard. Do not
remove rivet, replacement wicks come equipped with
rivets for easy replacement.
5. Follow the weekly cleaning instructions.
6. Insert new filters into each section of the wick holder
making sure the rivet attaches to the wick holder
securely.
7. Do not use wicks without rivets as this will not
produce the units intended output.
8. Replace the wick holder into the base and replace
main housing and then tank.
9. Repeat Operating Instructions.
It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach
maximum output.
Cheers!

Cool Mist Humidifier Filter Drying Out


How long are you going between filter changes?

A filter that stops wicking water up and turns orange/yellow is one full of deposits.

It sounds like you have hard water. How are you filtering this water before you use it? Distilled water is the best.

Replace the filter. They don't last forever. Mine normally last a month to a month and a half.

Good Luck
