Air innovation humidifier KS30U-06C leaking

Brand new humidifier. When I fill the tank and put it together, it starts leaking after 15 min. Between the tank and the base. It often will drain the whole tank in 10 min. All parts seem OK and put together correctly. Any idea ?

Check the o-ring seal in the bottom , they like to get crossed up when you pull the tank out to refill. a little vaseline will help.

Whole House Humidifiers ? The Types and Benefits of the Furnace Humidifier

As your gas furnace or other type of furnace heats the air in your house it will be forcing the moisture out of the air. To maintain the proper comfort and to keep things from cracking from lack of moisture you need to install a furnace humidifier.

Furnace humidifiers offer many health benefits. They help to relieve the irritation of breathing dry air. More humidity in the air has shown in studies to lead to healthier lungs and fewer illnesses. To many people, another very important benefit of installing a good furnace humidifier is that the addition of more humidity to the space during cold-weather months allows for you to lower your temperature setting on the thermostat while still maintaining comfort.

If you are already looking for a furnace humidifier, you are probably familiar with many of the great benefits of installing one in your home or office. A good furnace humidifier will also help alleviate some symptoms associated with asthma or allergies as well. A good furnace humidifier can also help you to prevent cracks in your precious wood. Another great benefit of installing a furnace humidifier is that it will help eliminate static electricity.

The three most common types of humidifier are bypass furnace humidifiers, the power spray furnace humidifiers, and also steam furnace humidifiers. The bypass humidifier seems to be the most common furnace humidifier is the bypass humidifier.

All of the different types of humidifiers need to have a lot of maintenance. On the pad type humidifiers you need to clean or change to pads often. On spray type humidifiers the nozzle and pad will need to be changed or cleaned yearly. On the best types of humidifier is the steam furnace humidifier. They produce the most humidity but are very expensive and do require more regular maintenance and upkeep then the other types of humidifier.

A humidifier can be a fantastic addition to your hot air heating system. The type of humidifier that you need to have will often be dependent on the size of the space you are planning to serve. Also, do you need precise control or not? Overall a humidifier is often a must have item if you are heating with hot air heat. Dry air is not any fun and causes many problems. Put up with the time you will need to invest in cleaning and servicing your humidifier. Having the proper amount of moisture in your house will pay you back many times over.

The heater will not light the kerosene starts then the ignitor lights then shuts off I tried repeatedlyto fire it no luck I think it might be an air adjustment

Here is the manual that will help you sort it out.

I think you have a photo cell or fuel issue as it ignitor trips but you do not get fuel.
Make sure you check the seal in the tank cap (Closed tightly) and the 2 hoses from the tank for cracks. The fuel system works via the 2 tubes. One is pressure the 2nd is fuel supply. Any leaks via either hose or the fuel cap will prevent fuel flow.

You may have to clean the fuel nozzle also. Just make sure to clean the photo cell carefully before putting it back together.

Unless you have an air filter(s) that is horribly clogged taking care of the above should get you going again.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have Reddy Heater 155 Pro. I fired up yesterday for the first time in months. I put in fuel, but this morning It sparks to fire, but will not light. but it appears to have fuel blowing out. It will not...

This morning I had an identical problem with a new heater, the culprit ended up being the fuel tank had water down inside it. Condensation causes this when you store them. I ended up draining it in to a five gallon bucket and then watched the water separate and go to the bottom of the bucket. Needless to say cleaning out the tank was real fun, after draining it I stuffed rags down in the tank to **** up the water, siphoned off the fuel from the water with an electric pump and filled the heater up now it is working fine. Remove the top cover and check the burning tray over real good, I would clean the flame sensor with windex and soft terry cloth rag. Then pull some preventative maintenance, locate the nozzle, remove it, nwo they say that you can not clean these but I say with a q-tip, carb cleaner,and a tooth pick you can with out damaging the nozzle. Directly behind the nozzle is a screen clean this as well, now put it back together. Inspect all fuel lines for holes, dry rot and cracks, if all is good move on to the side cover where the fuel line goes thru to the fuel tank. Remove it and locate the fuel line and filter, remove the filter and clean with compressed air and a blow gun, blowing air backwards thru the filter, instantly clean. Now put it back together and inspect lines again. On the back of the fuel pump is a foam filter for air intake remove it and clean with dish soap and water, be sure to dry really good then put it back and button your heater back up. Now you are ready for testing and happy heating.

Torpedo heater shuts off after several minuets, will not start again 5-6 minuets

These heaters require some preventative maintenance from year to year and here is my routine. There is a flame sensor in the burning tray, these collect carbon deposits, dust and dirt, and occasional insect nesting area. Locate the flame sensor by removing the top half of the heater, now remove it and clean with windex and soft terry cloth rag. Replace sensor and be sure it has an unobstructed view of the flame. Fuel is next, with the top still off locate the fuel nozzle, remove it and the say you can not clean these but I find that carb cleaner, q-tips and a tooth pick work just fine to clean them. Now when you remove the nozzle there is a screen filter directly behind it, these can corrode over storage so clean it too. Now inspect fuel lines for cracks, holes and dry rot. Put fuel system back together and the top on. The fuel line comes down thru the side panel and thru a filter then in to the tank. Remove side panel, locate fuel line, remove the filter and clean with a compressor and air gun. Blowing air thru the filter backwards will clean these right out. Put it back in line, put side panel back together. Next is the air filter on the inlet of the pump, they are foam. Clean this and dry it real good then put it back. Really look in the fuel tank to make sure you have no water,rust, or any other contaminants in the tank, fill with new fuel and you are ready for heat. Sounds complicated but really isn't, take your time and in an hour you will have this heater running like new.Good Luck

Been sitting for a while, filled with fuel, turn on runs for 5-10 secs then shuts off and light blinks ?? model 3ve51

You need to pull a little maintenance on this unit. Locate and remove the burner tray, on the tray you will find a flame sensor, this detects flame and permits the unit to run. These collect carbon deposits, dirt and the occasional insect seeking shelter. So clean it with windex and a soft terry cloth rag. Next is the fuel nozzle, find it , remove it, and they say you can not clean these but I say q-tips, tooth pick and carb cleaner will do the trick just be careful not to damage the nozzle. Directly behind the nozzle is a screen these like to corrode durring storage, so clean it good too. Put assembly back together and inspect all fuel lines for holes, leaks,or dry rotten conditions. Now inspect fuel lines to the filter, if an in line filter (small plastic filter) clean with compressed air and blow gun, blow air backwards thru the filter instantly cleaned. If a large oil type filter replace it with a new one and do not forget to fill the filter before putting it on.Make sure that your fuel is clean and no water has developed in it from condensation, if water is present drain fuel and clean out the tank put new fuel in and it should now work for you. Happy heating

Make sure that the thermocouple is well into the flame. Check to make sure the other end is secure into the gas valve. Check for any poor connection both gas and electric. If the LP cylinder is icing up, it is a vaporizing problem and the heater is sucking the available gas out of the cylinder faster than it can vaporize. You will need a larger cylinder.

I believe I had the same problem with my water heater about 15 years ago. It started with a small leak, then the tank broke flooding the room. I think it would be be best to replace the unit. Water heaters tipically have a 8-10 year life.

I recommend not filling the tanks as full as in the past. Leave an inch of space at the top of the tank.
