20 Most Recent Honeywell Warm Mist HWM-2030 Humidifier Questions & Answers


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.

You may refer to your users manual, or if you no longer have a copy, you may download one at this link: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000006709.pdf

Hope this answers your question.

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!)

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.

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.

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.

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.

The obvious solution is to replace the humidifier that became defective while in storage.

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.

Needs to be wired to work on the blower circuit. You must be drawing power from a source that is always on
