Missing valve Hi, my little boys have lost the vital rubber valve that goes into the screw top to the froggy head. I remember reading that it won't work without it (although I haven't tried). Any way to get a new one from the manufacturer? thanks!

Honeywell quietcare humidifier won't turn on


I am surprised that this answer isn't found anywhere, including in the manual from Kaz. If yours is the same version as mine, and your lights aren't even lighting up on top, most likely your float may have gotten bound up with gunk (the float rises up when the pan is full enough of water, which enables the motor to run. It is held into place by a plastic bracket with two phillips head screws, and looks a bit like a plastic bottle with a narrow neck in a small rectangular shape (not open at top). Remove the screws and the bracket, and take out the float and clean it and the reservoir (in the base) it sits in. Reinstall, and the float should move freely. Problem solved!

Water flow ok to side valve. no waer flow to top of 1042-l unit. valve extremely hot. is there an expert service maitenance available in montreal


Replacing this solinoid valve is not hard to do. This is something the homeowner can accomplished with small hand tools. Turn power off at the furnace and the inlet water off at the saddle valve.Remove the water line at the valve and the connector exiting the valve. Remove the two screws and the valve is off the unit. Armed with the make and model number of the unit goggle the manufacture with the model number and order your replacement valve on-line. Install the new valve opposite of which the old valve was removed or per manufactures instructions that may come with the new valve you orderd.

The solenoid for Model 600 was installed upside down--the inlet is closest to the floor. Is this OK? Also no in-line strainer. I confirmed water to the solenoid, but in Test mode w/ feeder tube...


The solenoid valve unit will work upside down however, I am concerned that the tech that installed the unit might have installed it backwards. Look on the side of the valve the solenoid is connected to and you should find an arrow. Thats the direction of the water flow.A strainer helps keep the valve clean however if there is dirt in the valve it would be stuck opened not closed. Make sure the solenoid is getting power via float valve. If the solenoid is getting power you can tell by touching the top of the solenoid with a metal non magnetic screw driver. It will pull the screw driver like a magnet. Good luck

I have a Honeywell humidfier HE 220A with a KIP U147112 pump. A lot of water bypasses the humidifer and I use 5 gal. in 24 hours. is there an adjustment on the pump to reduce the flow, or some other...


I have a Honeywell humidfier HE 220A with a KIP U147112 valve. Will turning the large screw head on the valve decrease the volume of water flow through the humidifier. Too much water is being wasted.

Honeywell HWM 450


I found a solution to our problem with the fill cap failing/leaking. It was/is not the cap, it’s the gasket/grommet/o-ring. Remember “THE MAGIC BULLET”, well the gasket, that’s where you tighten the top to the bottom, some are white and some are black, THEY FIT the Honeywell HWM450!!! ------- Problem solved.

Holmes HM5601 quit working


I had the same problem with my Holmes HM5601 humidifer unit - right out of the box. I almost returned the unit to the store, but was able to figure-out the problem. Not enough water had been filling the heating section (where that black knob-like protrusion is) and the lack of enough water had caused the unit to shut-off soon after plugging it in. The problem is in valve at the bottom of the water tank! The valve is a factory defect. It needs to open more when you sit the water tank onto the base so water fills the reservoir. I had solved the problem by going to the hardware store and purchasing some small, rubber pads or feet. These rubber pads are the type used to place under things where you want to protect a table-top from being scratched or you want the item not to slide too easily on a table-top. These rubber feet or pads have an adhesive on the bottom of them. Find the size that matches the diameter of the valve stem on the bottom of the water tank. Once installed, the valve should open and close with your finger without the rubber pad interferring with the operation of the valve. The pad, if installed properly, makes contact with the water reservoir base when you placed the water tank down onto that base. The valve open a bit more allowing water to pass-thru and fill the water reservoir. Water fills the heating section as needed and the unit runs perfectly after! The round rubber pad I had used was about an 1/8 inch thick and 1/2 inch in diameter.

Have a light in stairway that turns on and off at bottom and top of stair. When it is turned off at the top, it does not turn off it flickers. Have changed the switch. Jeff


Sounds like you changed just the one (top of stairs) switch. Due to the nature of these (call 3 way switches) the circuit goes through a different set of contacts for each position switch is in. There is not an Off or On, just an Up or Down. If one switch is Up and the light is on, then flipping either switch should turn light off, and vice versa. Therefore, try changing the other switch. Be careful to get the "common" terminal correct. It is easy to get them screwed up, and a little troublesome getting them right again. If you need more help after replacing the switch, add more comments and I'll give you more help.

Water does not get to Humidifier. Goes from source to motor.


That is not a 'motor' on the side of the humidifier housing, it is a solenoid valve. The water feeds in to one side and exits the other side to a tube that feeds in to the top of the humidifier unit. The valve opens and allows water to flow when electrical power is applied to the valve

The valve electircal requirement may be either 120 vac or 24 vac. Power typically is switched on and off by a Humidistat control. The power feed to the Humidistat may come from a small transformer if the valve is a 24 vac unit, or directly from a furnace connection if the valve is a 120 vac unit. There are many variations, though.

A qualified licensed eletrician should check the power feed to the valve. If there is no power feed to the valve then he can trace back to the point of failure and correct the issue ... but he must also check for additional issues with the valve itself, as noted below.

Other possibles reasons for solenoid valve failure:

If power feed to the valve tests ok, then the coil inside the solenoid may be 'open' (bad, no continuity). The electrician can test the coil by checking resistance or continuity of the coil.

A non-electrical problem is that the valve path may be blocked by hardwater mineral build-up or other foreign material that flowed through the water line.

The solenoid valve must be replaced if either of the above is true with your valve.

Remember, use only a quailified licensed electrician!

Holmes HM4600HD humidifier tank


Mine dried out too. I could not find where to get the rubber valve seal for the tanks. Holmes does not list the part and when I called the rep told me they didid not stock the part. I solved my problem by purchasing thin rubber washers from Lowe's. They are 3/16 X 1 1/4 X 1/16 thick. The 3/16 hole in the center "snaps" on over the end of the plastic plunger just like the original. I had to trim the outside diameter with scissors to about 1" or using the old ones as a guide. Cost me $0.67
