The drain hole or tubing that goes into the bucket is clogged. To solve this, you will 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire Coat Hangers) that is appropriately sized to fit into the hole. To access this drain hole or tubing, remove the bucket and look in above where the bucket came out. You will see a hole or plastic tubing. Insert the Zip Tie carefully and work it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend and continue pushing it in, until it either bottoms out or your run out of workable Zip Tie. Then while rotating it, slowly pull it out and be prepared for some water to follow.

That should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water does not fill in the Aprilaire humidifier on my furnance


It sounds like the feed has been shut off or pluged. Be sure the feed is off, remove the feed from the humidifier. open the fill valve slowly and run water into a bucket or whatever. If it does not run you found the problem, if it does then it is probably the fill solenoid valve on the humidifier.

When my dehumidifier is on, it says there is 90 humidity. I come back an hour later, it is still running and no water in the bucket.


Hello,

If there's no water in the reservoir, first make sure that water is getting to the humidifier. The humidifier must have a good stream of water available to it. If there's water in the water line but the reservoir doesn't fill, replace the float mechanism inside the humidifier.

Take care.

Water is no longer collecting in bucket, but appears to leak out of humidifier. Humidifier also ices up.


Basically there is a drainage blockage from the humidifier to the bucket. Take one for the boys and **** hard on the pipe which very possibly will release the blockage.

A dehumidifier does not need water in the tank.It takes humidity out of the air and the moisture goes into the bucket. A humidifier has to have water in the tank.Note ,a humidifier puts moisture in the air, and a dehumidifier takes the moisture takes moisture out of the air.

Dehumidifier not sure is working


There is water in the bucket or no water in the bucket? If there is water in the bucket then empty it and put it back. If there is no water in the bucket then make sure the bucket is all the way in, (there is a switch that senses the bucket). If the bucket is not all the way in the de-humidifier will not work. If you do not hear it, it is not working.
