Re: Dog chewed up the filter cage

You can order a new cap, but you won't be able to get one with the filter ball. Every site i went to says they are unavaliable.

If you are interested in just buying the cap, here is the link:

Good Luck.

I have a basement dehumifiier and I think there should be a way to clean the filter but don't know how to go about it?

you can unplug the unit,then remove top cover rear screw,then 6 screws on side of front grille,then all screws around the rest of the units wrap around cover,being careful to not stress any wires in doing so,then carefully blow out inside components out with low pressure compressed air or a vacuum cleaner

I have a Vicks V3100 and dont know how to put it together or if I even have a filter. I do not know what the filter looks like

There is a Wicking Filter that is also the same media that creates the humidity. This filter looks like rolled up paper media(like for a swamp cooler). This filter installs at the back of the unit with the water resevoir removed. The water then is absorbed by this media and as the air passes through it humidity is released into the air. The Wicking Filter will need to be replaced when the performance of the unit decreases and the material becomes hard from mineral deposits. There is also a Protec Cleaning Cartridge that looks like a small plastic ball with a stem on it. Inside this cartridge are softening agents that remove hard minerals and extend the life of the Wicking Filter. The Cleaning Cartridge is just simply placed inside the water resevoir. To prolong the life of the Wicking Filter and unit make sure to use clean and cool water. Distilled water will work the best if available. The harder the water you use the more the unit will need cleaning due to hard water. When the unit becomes clogged with diposits you will need to run a solution of vinegar and water through the unit to clean it. If you use distilled or filtered water(reverse osmosis) then the unit will rarely need cleaning.

Dehumidifier not collecting water

do the lines from the compressor to the evaporator freeze up or ice up anywhere,if so it could be low on refrigerant,also check the start capacitor in the compressor power circuit,if its bad the compressor won't run

Humidifier causing sump pump to cycle repetativley

I'm assuming this unit has a reservoir installed in the heat duct and has a rotating pad in a wire cage -- is this correct?

If so, it sounds as if the float valve in the humidifier reservoir is out of adjustment or the valve is leaking, The reservoir is overfilling and running into the sump.

There is an adjustment on the float, if lowering the float does not solve the problem, the valve is leaking -- it'll probably need replacing.

Honeywell 6013i new machine will light up but will not work

Unplug the unit (safety first), remove the two water jugs at the back lay them down. Find a tray large enough to fit the motor and filter inside of it put it next to the unit. Lift off the motor and set it next to the tray, lift out the filter and set it into the tray (in might be wet, and we wouldn't want a mess). Look for a small plastic tower in the base, inside that tower is supposed to be a float with a screw threaded into the top. If there is no screw, grab a small one that is about 5/8" long and screw it in about 1/4" put the filter and motor on, verify that the motor is sitting evenly on the base. If it isn't, turn the screw colckwise 1 full turn and recheck the motor/base fit. When it looks even, put the motor back on, plug it in and hope for the best!!
Take your time and don't forget that this is not a precision machine, so some 'adjustments' are necessary

Missing part

This is a link to the manual for the humidifier you bought.
It shows how everything comes apart and how it all goes together with the filter.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

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
