Question about Honeywell HCM-646 4 Gallon Humidifier
Honeywell HCM-646 - 3 years old. Took out of the box this winter and plugged in. Lights come on but moter is not running when I turn power on. Playing with humistat setting doesn't help (unit not running when humistat is off even). Is there a fuse or something or is my motor bad? Something else? Thanks
There is normally a capacitor to prevent surges across the motor it might the short circuit.# and preventing the motor from starting.

SOURCE: motor turning real slow
THE MOTOR ONLY TURNS THE SPONGE DRUM AT MAYBE 10X'S PER MINUTE. THIS IS A BY-PASS TYPE HUMIDIFIER THAT RELIES ON YOU FURNACE BLOWER MOTOR TO SUPPLY AIR ACCROSS THE SPONGE MEDIA. NOTICE THE 5"-7" ROUND HOLE MUST BE DUCTED TO THE PLENUM OR RETURN AIR. (IF MOUNTED ON THE PLENUM, THE HOLE HAS TO BE DUCTED TO THE RETURN AIR, AND VISA-VERSA.) CAUTION!!!IF YOU HAVE CENTRAL AIR? A "DAMPER" MUST BE INSTALLED AND KEPT CLOSED THROUGH-OUT THE "COOLING SEASON". SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPRESSOR CAN RESULT FROM TOO COLD OF AIR ... CIRCULATING AND "BY-PASSING YOUR EVAPORATOR COIL".

you type in on the internet. www.appliancefactory.com
in the search bar type in your model number. it might take a minute to load but you will have 3 pictures that come up. click on any of them and scroll down alittle until you see water tanks. you can order them there.. or if youdon't want to go that route you can always try local hardware stores to see if they have it as well.

Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.
