Question about Sunbeam Humidifiers

Open Question

Can't find the filters Wick HWF75/SF221 I bought it at WalMart and they never carry the filters. This unit takes one a week - they run $10.00 each and this gets pretty expensive. Any information you can give me would help, especially where I can get the filters. Thanks, Melissa Graves

SOURCE: Bought H12 series evaporative humidifier.

If you say you have hard water then yes expect to change the wick more often. As the heavy elements are left in the wick the wick becomes less able to hold water. You might try the product CLR, which I am sure you have used before if you have hard water. I have used strong vinegar to clean them too. You just need to clean the calcium and minerals out of the wick and it should be up and going again. This is assumong you don't have a special material that the CLR will eat ;)

Using Pure/distilled water would help.

Good luck

Package indicates wilter might need to be chaged once a season


You should probably follow the directions in the instruction manual, which do say how often to change it. If you wish to risk a moldy house or an unproductive filter you can use it longer than advised. I soak mine in 50% vineger 50% water for an hour to dissolve mineral deposits and kill fungus, so the wick doesn't become too clogged to operate. I believe this lets it last a few times longer, but it is a Honeywell model of filter and I don't know how that would work on your filter.

I have two questions. How do I properly clean my humidifier and recently it has started coating my furniture with a white powdery film. Why has it started that?


there is some cleaning tablets you can use periodically called protec beads ... cleaning can be done using high acid vinegar soak .. then hydrogen peroxide can be used on any mold .. this unit as well as ultrasonic type models will put out calcium dust if your water has calcium added or is hard water .. calcium is often added to water to give it a good taste .. one way to keep the unit clean for a long time is to use only distilled water .. and make sure there is no calcium added .. (read the small print on the container) .. its hard to clean the fan chamber in this unit .. lots of people complain about the dust .. the wick/filter type humidifiers dont put out dust but the calcium does accumulate on the wick/filter .. so you have to change that frequently (6-9 weeks) .. yours doesnt have a wick but still needs cleaned regularly ..

How do I change the filter, (Holmes hm7204 Humidifier) Where does it go?


REPLACING THE FILTERS
Through normal use, waterborne minerals and sediment
become trapped in the wick filters. The harder your
water, the greater the amount of minerals in the water,
and the more often you will be able to monitor the life of
your filters in your humidifier.
You will be able to monitor the life of the filters in your
humidifier by checking the FilterCheck® Indicator. After
60 minutes of use, FilterCheck® Indicator will move and
indicate your filters condition. New filters will register in
the section reading Good filter. After frequent use of your
humidifier, the FilterCheck® Indicator will let you know
when the filters need to be changed, see Figure 2.
When the needle is in the CHANGE section, this means the
proper amount of moisture is not getting into your air due
to the excessive minerals and sediment that have become
trapped on your filters. At this point, you should replace your
filters. It is important to change your filters as
indicated to obtain stated performance level.
To replace the filter, follow the steps below:
1. Turn the unit off and disconnect from the electrical
outlet.
2. Remove the tank and main housing to access the base.
3. Remove the wick holder from the base of the humidifier.
4. Remove each individual wick and discard. Do not
remove rivet, replacement wicks come equipped with
rivets for easy replacement.
5. Follow the weekly cleaning instructions.
6. Insert new filters into each section of the wick holder
making sure the rivet attaches to the wick holder
securely.
7. Do not use wicks without rivets as this will not
produce the units intended output.
8. Replace the wick holder into the base and replace
main housing and then tank.
9. Repeat Operating Instructions.
It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach
maximum output.
Cheers!

Those filters don't last forever! Whenever I had that problem, I just replaced the filter. (The fresh filters also contain some kind of anti-bacterial or anti-fungal, since you're not supposed to add anything to the water which would spray into the air.) My problem has been finding new filters--does Sears still carry them? (The small one I was in recently does NOT.)
