you have a defective water inlet valve, leaking in water, or you water full sensor is defective.

Why ismy Essick humidifier registering over 20 on the humidity level. I have changed the filters several times using high end filters?? I also have wet the filters


Sorry to ask, for clarification is this a dehumidifier or a humidifier? Do you want to add water to your air or take water out of your air. A reading of 20 for a humidifier sounds pretty good to me. I didn't know there were filters on a humidifier, I thought most of the time you just filled the tank with distilled water, it got heated and vapor came out. I guess a filter to keep airborne bacteria from floating into the water tank would make some sense, maybe a water filter to pre-filter the water going into your humidifier, but I don't think any filter is your problem. If you are trying to remove water from your air, then a dehumidifier is needed and you just have to empty the tank when it's full.

Humidifier doesn't provide more than 28% humidity


Hi Joe,

If you've got water flowing, but the pad is dry - I suspect that the motor is failing to turn the drum/filter. You might want to somehow mark the drum and watch or check it at short intervals of time to see if it moves or not. If the motor fails to rotate the wet portion of the drum/filter into the airflow - it will be difficult for it to raise the humidity of the space.

I found replacement motors as "#10" on this page: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/humidifiers/general/747.html These motor looks awfully chintzy to cost $55 - $70 (depending on whether it is a 24V or 115V type). They look very much like a standard clock motor. If that's the case, you can probably replace yours (if defective) for a small fraction of that price - if yours is the 115V style anyway.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Hello, no the humidifier should be running only when the blower motor is running. Sounds like the solenoid valve is faulty if water keeps drainig from humidifier.

Water Tank leaks all over the floor


This happened to me the second night of use.  Water all over the carpet and a dripping vent. I called customer service and they told me to remove the tank and filter, and run unit dry for an hour or so. Then restart it.  Worked fine after that.  I think we may have bumped it which is said to be the cause of most leaks.  Bummer is that after 5 night of use the grip on water tank slipped and the tank is in pieces.

Aprilaire 400 - Mesh Screen not wet


Not happy either. I bought 3 Aprilaire 400 for my house (3 zones). I picked this style since I have attic installation and did not want to run drains. The first night I expected a major air quality improvement but no change in humidity. I have installed humidifiers before so I know the drastic improvement they make. So I watched for a season and still no humidity improvement. Absolutely nothing at all. Same exact observation as you all described. Only the bottom of the media was wet. I'm dissatisfied with Aprilaire 400. Do not buy! Since I installed humidifiers before and understand them I am converting the Aprilaire 400 to work like a Aprilaire 600. I simply unwired the float sensors, removed the floats/lid and using a knife cut some of the plastic cups so the water would drain well. I also cut open the plastic exit port some too so it wont clog from dust globs. I obviously added drains. HUGE RESULTS. On the very first cycle on the humidity in that zone went from 25 to 48. I am watching carefully. -GK

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?
