  • Anonymous Nov 28, 2008

    My humidifier is a small one but, for some reason it is running and not blowing out the humidification. At the bottom there is an opening that says nit to operate while running faucet water. Does this mean that I should run water in this opening and do not operate it while doing so?

Make sure the bottom port on the humidifier is seated properly in drain port. Make sure your drain line is not obstructed.

Did you check the orifice inside the supply water tube? Sometimes the orifice can come loose and allow to much water inside the humidifier.

General Humidifier Model 1042-L leaking water


Check the bottom of drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray is clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

If the unit has not been used in a while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube.

The last poissible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

I have a General Humidifier Model 1042-L that is leaking water out of the bottom pan. How do I fix this?


Check the bottom of the drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the bottom end of the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray may be clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

Also, if the humidifier has not been used in a long while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube. Tell the spider to find a new home.

Another possible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.

And lastly, is the unit installed properly, parallel to the ground? If tilted, water flowing through the unit may catch the sides and flow out where it should not.

Water leaking out of bottom


A leaking humidifier is a sign that the unit's filter needs to be cleaned/changed. I had the exact same problem on this model.

Water leak


Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.

Filling humidifier


On the Vicks v-3100 the water tank should lift off of the unit. Flip it over and there is a lid. Open the lid and fill the tank. Once you've filled it back up, put the lid back on. Flip the tank over to make sure there are no leaks, then put it back on the humidifier.

Note: It's very important to check to make sure the tank isn't leaking before you put it back on the humidifier, if it is, it will flood the reservoir, in turn causing water to leak out of the bottom of the humidifier (which is one of the major complaints about the 3100).

Humidifier leaks


My Air-O-Swiss U7142 has a leak from the very bottom. I found that as long as the water flows on to the "pan" that evaporizes the water, the water will come out from the bottom. Does anybody know how to fix this?
