mine was having the same issue. its been broken for 2 years now. i jsut fixed it a few minutes ago. there is a button sensor behind the top filter. if its not pushed in all the way it wont turn on. my filter was in correctly, but the button doesnt appear to be depressed all the way. when fastening the back cover it locked in good, but was still slightly loose. those two things together means the sensor wasnt being triggered.
with your unit correctly assembled plug it in. while plugged in simply press the top of the back cover (where that sensor is) and the light should go green. i then taped it tight with a thin electrical tape as to not limit the airflow. it now powers on and works great.
According to what I found, if the filter is not reinstalled just right, it won't trigger the filter being back inplace switch.Also, try unplugging the unit for 30 minutes and then plug it back in. That may reset the switch. If tall else fails, call Honeywell Customer Service at 877- 841-2840.
Thank you to MPODHOLA. After cleaning your Honeywell HHT-011, if the red light does not turn off locate the very small button under the red light. As suggested use a paperclip, hold the button for 5 seconds and this resets the system. Make sure the unit is on when you hold down the button. I tried it with the unit off and it did not work. Turned on the unit, held down the button for 5 seconds and the system reset. No more red light.
I am 99.9% sure that you are simply looking at this year vs. last year models. There are absoutly no significant changes. I will verify on Mondayas I know the engineer at Honeywell that works on this particular product!
I have had the same problem. The way I fix mine (it only runs for a couple days staight) is to switch the two filters (or maybe you just need to remove completely?) making sure they are in tight. Replace the cover and it should work!
