Honeywell Warm Mist HWM-2030 Humidifier Questions & Answers
Warm Mist HWM-2030 Humidifier: DOES NOT GIVE OFF VAPOR...
If the unit runs normally otherwise, but doesn't give off vapor, then your heating element is the culprit. i.e. if fan runs, switches in normal positions, indicating lights on, etc.and restart slide switch depressed and no mist, then, yes the heating element is the source of the problem. It may be bad, or otherwise it may just be scaled up from hard water, and require cleaning.

Hope this answers your question.
Refill light is on, but the water tank is full
In the manual it says that you should clean the heating element. Unplug the machine, lift off the water tank, pull the lever under the tank and lift off the power unit side. If there is too much build up on the element from mineral deposits, the refill light may remain on.
Unfortunately, I have cleaned mine, soaked it in vinegar, made it look nice and new...and it still doesn't work. I am really annoyed as I have not had this humidifier long and have taken really good care of it. I do not want to throw it out. I am going to call customer support and find out if there are any other solutions. (I got a new one for Christmas and do not want to open it until I am sure that it is not fixable!)
Is not producing the mist
Most misting humidifiers use an atomizer to generate the mist. It is a small metal disk that vibrates very fast. I have yet to see one of these that ever lasts more than a year or two. If you remove the water container you should be able to see the atomizer. If you can put you finger on it and it isn't vibrating then thats the problem. On most small humidifiers it is cheaper to buy a new one that to try and get it fixed.
The humidstat light is on when I first try to get
This is normal, based on where you have the humidistat knob set to, it will go out only after reaching the humidity level set on the knob. Also if you have it setting in a fairly large open area of your home, it may take a loooong time to reach the proper humidity level. My cousin has one of these units setting in his living room, which has a cathedral ceiling, the unit's humidistat light never goes off, and the unit runs continually, unless the resevoir runs low. But the unit operates fine.

Have a warm air Honeywell humidifier. The
This may be due to one of two things.
1. If you turn the unit off or unplug it when you refill the resevoir, then plugging back in or turning it back on will not automatically reset the refill sensor. You must depress the restart slide switch on the bottom front controls to reset and restart the unit, or.....
2. It the refill light won't clear after refilling the resevoir or following the above step, the most likely cause of the problem is a scaled up heating element, which must then be cleaned.

Start switch doesn't work
the switch is bad or there is a loose wire connection, if you have a multi-meter you can check the resistance on the switch, it should be 0.0-0.2 if the switch is good it could be the pump.If the pump is bad don't bother fixing it.
Honeywell HE200 humidifier only runs when fan/heat are off
It sounds like the wiring for the humidifier may not be correct. The solenoid valve, which controls the flow of water to the humidifier, should be wired to the humidistat and the transformer, not to the furnace or fan. It is possible that the bottom wire of the solenoid is connected to the wrong terminal on the transformer or humidistat, or that the top wire is connected to the wrong terminal on the humidistat. I recommend consulting the installation instructions for your specific humidifier model, or consulting a professional HVAC technician to verify the correct wiring.

High-pitched noise from Honeywell Humidifier
Sounds like the high pitched noise is coming from the solenoid valve which allows water to enter the humidifier. Typically when the water pressure is too high, it causes this high pitched sound at the solenoid valve. You can adjust the water pressure a little at a time and see if it helps, just make sure you’re getting enough water across the water panel.

My Honeywell HCM-315T will not turn on. No lights, nothing. Is there a fuse or switch that I can replace? Other ideas?
Very first thing. If it won’t turn on, unplug it, and check the cord....especially if you have, or have had, a rabbit that has already chewed through every other wired devices you have ie: TV, satellite dishes, DVD players, other electrical cords.
I got my humidifier year before last and only used it a few times that year. Our humidity was fine until now, so the humidifier was still new as far as I was concerned. I checked every online help suggestion before I remembered Buster. Sure enough....exposed and partially chew wiring. I thanked God that I hadn’t been shocked.
Thank you, Daddy, for teaching this 70 year old grandma how to splice wiring and install other electrical wiring when I was a teenager. I miss you so much.
CAUTION: UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO SPLICE WIRING DON’T THINK YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT. TAKE YOUR APPLIANCE TO A SPECIALIST TO GET A BRAND NEW WIRE PLACED ON YOUR APPLIANCE. I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH. IN FACT, TAKE IT TO AN ELECTRICIAN ANYWAY.
