Auto parts store or a home improvement center, you can also try a air and heating distributor that sells parts and services

Need replacement o-ring for water tank cap


This is a posting from someone other than myself...however, it presented a good solution.

A solution to the 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.

Water leaking from bottom


If you are talking about the water line at the water soleniod valve, it is not a o-ring. It is called a ferrel. Any hardware store such as ace will have them in the brass fittings area. It will be 1/4". If your water line is copper you will have to loosen the nut and slide it up out of the way and cut the old ferrel off. The same with plastice tubing. the only difference is that with the plastic tubing you will also need to get the brass insert sleeve as well. Less than a dollar total. to install, slide the ferrel over the tube, if plastic do the same then insert the brass sleeve into the tubing. Slide the tube into the valve till it stops. Then slide the ferrel down till it stops. then slide down the nut and tighten till snug. if it leaks after tightening snug it a little more. But be gentle, its a one shot deal because it locks in place and you will have to cut it off and start with a new one again. Also when you cut the tubing cut off as close to the ferrel so you dont run short on tubing to reconnect. hope this helps

Vicks V3100 1.2 Gallon Humidifier leaking


Check if the cap has a gasket or o-ring and is not worn. There are two designs for this model. The older model has the fill cap and valve together. The new design the fill cap and valve are at different locations. The new design has no hole in the bottom of the unit.
You can fixed the problem using a 1-1/2 inch washer for brass tubular found in the plumbing isles in HD or L. The rubber washer is 1 or 2 mm smaller then the grooves in the fill/valve cap. You can stretch the washer and it will fit perfectly in the grooves. When putting the fill/valve cap back with the washer, it will be tighter then before. Firmly turn and you should not have any leaks and make sure unit is level. You can plug the hole because the new design does not have a hole in the bottom of the unit.

Clean/refill light


My Slant Fin humidifier has a floating, ring-shaped magnetic level that isn't replaceable. You can't even tell it's magnetic until you cut off the piece that prevents the white plastic float from rising past a certain point. It turns out that there is a ring-shaped magnet in the float.

I found that the Refill light would go off when I held a strong magnet near the float device.

So, I have suspended the magnet with string from the top of the humidifier outside the humidifier.

Caution: This fix disables the safety feature inherent in the low level shut off. I wonder why the manufacturer uses material that corrodes?

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).
