Question about Hunter 33202 Humidifier
I do appreciate your thorough and clearly written suggestion. However, I am familiar with the "workings" of this (and past) Hunter humidifiers. I tried your suggestions before I wrote that post. What I can't figure out is why the humidifier is quiet some nights and others it is that cascading waterfall sound. Thanks again!

The Hunter 33202 uses a recirculating pump to keep the aluminum mesh wicks (filters) wet. There is a vinyl hose which runs from the pump outlet to the top of the main unit (you will need to lift the main unit off the base to see any of this, much less do anything to fix the noise). The top of the hose meets the diffuser, which has several small holes to drain into that V-shaped double trough (located directly above the two wicks) which has larger drain holes on either side. If any of the holes in the diffuser or the trough become clogged, the other holes will tend to release a higher volume of water, which could lead to that running faucet sound. The clogs are easy to dislodge-- they're usually mineral deposits from the water. Another likely cause is the filters becoming clogged from dust that's being sucked in from the fan. Easy fix, also-- remove the wicks every week or so and thoroughly rinse them under running water.
