SOURCE: Kenmore 15408 Humidifier How to Reset CF

Per the owner's manual, you simply unplug your device for 30 seconds. Upon plugging it back in, the CF notification should be cleared.

This assumes you have also changed the filter, of course.

SOURCE: tanks not draining

You may be over-tightening the caps. It's tempting to over-tighten because it's a big tank of water that you're about to turn upside down! I had the same problem and the fix turned out to be just that - take the tank(s) back out, loosen the caps (hear the Ssszzzzz as the vacuum breaks), now tighten the caps again, but just enough that the water doesn't leak, and no tighter. Get the cap snug, but not so tight that you couldn't turn it some more. Do it over a sink the first couple of times until you get the feel of it.

SOURCE: Not using water, filters are dry, doesn't humidify air.

Check your water supply. Make sure the valves are open and/or not blocked. You could have a blocked orifice in the water line by the solenoid valve. Check to see if your humidistat is set high enough. When you replace the water panel could you have accidentally disconnected a wire. Is the door on good. Some humidifiers must have the door closed properly to maintain a proper low voltage connection.
Good luck

Have a MA0800, have changed the filter but can't clear the flashing CF display.

You have to unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. Just shutting it off won't clear the CF code.

Humidifier what does CF stand for

It may mean "Change Filter." After you replace the filter, unplug the humidifier for 30 seconds, and then you plug it back in, the CF code should be gone.

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.

I have the MA0800 and I have a CF flashing on the display. How do I get rid of this code? If it requires a clean filter, then how do I reset this code once I have a clean filter?

Change the filter then unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and the code will be cleared. Just shutting the humidifier off won't clear the code, it has to be unplugged from the power to clear the flashing CF.

What does the cf stand for

Found the answer in the original manual. CF means check filter, this displays every 7200 hours of operation. If the filter is OK just unplug the unit for 2 minutes and the display will reset.
