SOURCE: Motor is making loud noise and won't blow a lot of

If you feel like trying take it apart and oil both ends of the motor shafts with Turbine Oil or 3in1 electric motor oil then you may be able to get life back into it. Some oils come with a long straw you can slip out of the bottle to reach inacessable areas or devices you wish to not open to save time, like when you can see the motor shaft areas ( each end of motor) and oil them that way. These can be saved sometimes but if the shafts are too scored up and have gumed up factory lubrication then the fix won't last a long time.

SOURCE: My vaporizer is making a quiet bubbling/gurgling

Hi,
That is very normal...the sound is the water being turned to steam which is the "vapor" that comes out...
Everything is okay and perfectly normal.

My vaporizer is making a quiet bubbling/gurgling noise. This is only the second time that I've used it, but I can't seem to find the instruction manual. What could this mean?

Spitting noises and gushing water


Another alternative to vinegar is to use lemon juice. About 1 cup to a tank of water should do the trick. It smells much better than vinegar and also has the acid content to clean the vaporizer.

Aprilaire 760 furnace humidifier makes a loud screeching sound.


A bad circuit board should not make any noises. A bad solenoid valve could make a loud buzzing noise. If the noise is a squealing noise then you have defective bearings in the blower motor.
If you disconnect the low voltage wiring from the solenoid valve and you still hear the noise, then its not the solenoid valve.

Gurgling sound


the gurgling noise is the water going into the base. since you haven't used it in so long your going to hear some weird noises at first then they should go away. but before using it make sure that all dust particals and everything is cleaned. if you have any more problems please let us know.

Loud noise


Replace the water valve... It"s vibrating when closing. Do you have hot water feeding the unit?
