Check Filter Indicator The ability of any humidifier to efficiently supply humidity output relies heavily on the condition of the filter. As the filter loads with impurities it gradually loses its wicking capability. When this happens, moisture output is reduced and the humidifier has to work longer to satisfy the selected setting. This humidifier has a check filter reminder timed to appear after 720 hours of operation. When the Check Filter (CF) message is displayed, disconnect the power cord and check the condition of the filter. If a build-up of deposits or severe discoloration is evident replace the filter to restore maximum efficiency. The CF message is reset when the humidifier is plugged back in.
Depending on your model, the CF could mean the filter needs to be changed or that the unit needs to be reset. If your model doesn't have a reset button, you can unplug the unit from the outlet for 5 minutes.
Change the filter then unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and the code will be cleared. Just shutting the humidifier off won't clear the code, it has to be unplugged from the power to clear the flashing CF.
However, assuming that you have done that in the recent past, you probably want to know more. I'm not sure how this actually works (that is why it shows CF). I saw it for the first time after 2 or 3 years of using my humidifier. (And I had just changed the filter a week or so previously).
You may have to turn the unit off/on or even unplug it to clear the message, then it should operate normally.
