    Buyer beware. Their products are a piece of junk. I installed the ds 3200 purchased from lowes on several customers heating system. They have all had premature failure of either the drive gear or motor. Despite numorous complaints the company is unwilling to help there customers other then charging $38.00 for another inferior retrofit part. Stay clear of this companies products. Spend your money more wisely and buy honeywell humidifiers

Just stopped working. Tested switch,all contacts have power, capacitor is good. Need a wiring diagram so I can open motor and see what's wrong. Had very little use in ten years.


Can't help you, but I've read they have as high as a 20% burn out rate. Most report failure if they operate with the window screen on (creates too much airflow restriction) and most failures are with the capacitor. Other than that, you need to contact the company and try to get it replaced under warranty.
If you need to replace the motor, you can call the parts department at 800-233-0268 (M-F 8 to 4 EST.)

This is getting old. I may be able to get #1 replaced - am persuing that. As far as technical help or schematics, we are getting nowhere. At this point I do not feel I have received my money's worth...


If Hunter provided a wiring schematic for their dehumidifiers, you would had a response well before now. All they do provide is the Owner's Manual and a list of replaceable parts for your unit.
http://www.hunter-humidifiers.com/manuals/34357.pdf Just in case you have misplaced yours.

Certainly, if you call their Tech Service Dept 1-888-830-1326, they may furnish one to you via email with an attachment, as well as sell you any parts you may need. If your unit is not still under the Five Year Limited Warranty.

Good luck and hope this helps you get the schematic you need.

Have two Hunter humidifiers - model 34357-about 5 years old #1, fan just quit running. All else seems normal. #2, Unit starts running and then stops with the humidity reading at max. Since the...


This is the manual for your de-humidifier. It lists the part number for the power and fan control switch and it states they have a 5 year warranty.

They have a msrp on the unit at 84.95. What I wuld do is definately check into the warranty ting with them and I'm sure you could probably salvage one ot of the two units. Replacement parts may not be cost effective. You can test the motor from #1 in #2 and, if it runs, you know it has to be a switch or a start capacitor, etc. I guess it all depends on how much tinkering you want to do. I would think there is a good chance there is a wiring diagram for the motor somewhere inside the case or on the motor. Good luck.

My desert springs humidifier doesn't work. I suspect that it's about 6 or 7 years old. The furnace is still running and I've tried all solutions that seem obvious to me. Is it possible that the motor has...


Well, let's see what service the unit has had in its 6 or 7 years of working--

When was the Humidifying pad last changed?
These usually have to be changed every year-- to get good performance from the humidifier...
So-- Have you looked inside the large door?-- what does the pad look like?

When the furnace is running, you should be able to open the humidifier door, and look in, (Air should be sucking INTO the door as you open it, if the unit is properly mounted in the return air duct work..) and if the humidistat is calling -- the motor should be turning the big wheel, and moisture is being added, as the wet surface is exposed to the air returning to the furnace. What do you see?

There is also a water sump, filled by a float valve-- is that valve admitting water into the sump?
Is the pad wicking up this water, and rotating into the air stream?

That pad is easily changed-- your hard ware store probably has replacement pads-- they can be sewn back on to the wheel, after removing the old one.

Let us know if we can help further-

Depends on what Volts and VA your DS3200 humidifier works on. If it is the same, no problem but if it is different don't do it.

Humidifier fan blades stopped turning


Sounds like the brush is completely gone. You might be able to replace just the brush.


Good luck.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the unit


The tune up kit that I ordered arrived on Friday and I installed most of it on Friday night. While it is nice to have a new frame and the distribution panel and I think the price of the whole kit was fair considering it comes with the parts and 2 water panels, the fix was really simple.

The kit came with the water distribution tube with with a new blue orifice (Aprilaire #4232) already inserted. This orifice is in the end of the plastic tube at the solenoid end. When I removed the old water distribution tube, the old orifice was not really dark blue anymore but kind of a light blue and was deteriorating from 12 years of exposure to the chemicals in the water. What should have been a pin-hole size opening in the orifice was up to about 2mm or a little more so the orifice was letting way too much water through.

If anyone else has this leaking problem, and your orifice is several years old, I would check that first. It is a $2.75 part and may be the cause of the leak. The whole feed tube kit is only $8.75 and includes the feed tube, nozzle, orifice, ferule, compression nut, strainer so if you need to replace the orifice, I would order the whole feed tube kit for a little bit more.

Hope this helps,
Roger...
