Hello,It sounds like you need to clean the unit from scaling and debris to increase the output capacity. There should be a removable filter as well that will need to be replaced if it is in bad enough condition, it uses a "MAF-2" filter. Here is a product brochure.
Hope this helpsJames

My Holmes HM630 humidifier doesn't get up to 40% it levels out 33-34%. How do I get it up to 40-50% air humidity level?


, this cool mist tower is ideal for medium rooms. It provides a refreshingly cool, invisible mist, as well as a digital humidistat which offers precise humidity control for your optimal comfort.

I got this off the Sears website so either the room you're trying to make humid is too large, or the humidistat needs to be set properly. Also make sure there is plenty of water in the tank.

Humidity setting of the 152Z27KGM


You should have a dial setting usually on the return duct box near where your filter goes. It is probably about the size of your thermostat. Set at around 40%

Hello, make sure you are getting 24 volts at the transformer, if not turn off power to transformer and check resistance on the secondary side of transformer, you should have resistance if not replace transformer. If you have 24 volts at transformer than check the wiring and make sure it is tight. the last thing to check is to make sure you are getting 24 volts in and out of the humidistat. if you are not replace humidistat.

I have an old Aprilaire 550. Can't get the humidity to desired level of 40-45% humidity, only 36-39%. Is there anything I can do. Water is very hard in my home could this be the reason why water isn't...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
You are at the limit of what the unit can do.
One little thing you can do is see if the unit is hooked up to hot water instead of cold water.

OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE RECOMMENDED SETTING
-20F -29C 15%
-10F -23C 20%
0F -18C 25%
+10F -29C 30%
+20F - 7C 35%
+30F - 1C 40%

Our house is extremely humid and the a/c needs to be set lower to feel cooler. What are we doing wrong regarding aprilaire humidifier on our furnaces? Shouldn't they be turned off? yet the directions...


Hello
It depends on personal preferance,an air conditionner is going to remove humidity or water from the home,as water contains heat.

I would shut off the humidifier.The 40% setting depends on where in the world your located,say nevada is dry and hot so you may want a humidifier.Where florida is hot and humid so you would want to dehumidify or get rid of the humidity.

Lower the setting to 20% or just turn it off.

Water only runs with humidistat in test/reset mode. Aprilaire 600 with an Aprilaire 56 Automatic Humidistat, both about 5 years old. Water line is clear, and test mode runs fine for the 1 minute interval....


you need to make sure your humidity level in the house isnt higher then what your humidifier will provide at any givin outdoor temp. this chart is in the owners manual. you cant remove the wires going to the ODS or it will give an error unless you have a resistor to put in its place. Anyway if the humidifier works in test mode according to AA it works so you may have higher humidity than you think, the highest your gonna get is 45% as the temp outside drops it will allow less humidity so it doesnt cause window condinsation (property damage) here is a copy of the chart. the #s on the left are the dial setting

Odor


First, clean or replace the filter. Next, mix a very weak solution (40:1 ratio) of bleach and water to fill the unit. the bleach will kill any bacteria that could be causing the odor, but NOT harm anyone, The filter will take care of any hard water issues. Just don't make the mistake of thinking "If a weak solution is good, a strong one is better". NOT TRUE. Stay with the 40:1 mix unless you like breathing bleach. (Yuk) Note: It may take a couple of days for the odor to go away.
