I bought a Honeywell HCM-6009 in March 2014. Now less than 1 year later I notice beads of water leaving from a seam between the clear plastic and the white plastic on the long edge of one of my humidifier's water tanks. The seam may have been faulty from the beginning but I just noticed that the leak is the source of water drops i have noticed before. Is the water tank under the one year warranty? How do you recommend I deal with this problem? On my carton it says P/N 32GB6009PBO, Rev 2.6, 6.12.12

SOURCE: tank is broken on Honeywell HCM-560 humidifier.

you type in on the internet. www.appliancefactory.com
in the search bar type in your model number. it might take a minute to load but you will have 3 pictures that come up. click on any of them and scroll down alittle until you see water tanks. you can order them there.. or if youdon't want to go that route you can always try local hardware stores to see if they have it as well.

SOURCE: Our HCM-640bw Honeywell humidifier will leak water

Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.

Have air innovations humidifier model #WS30U-09A. It is leaking from the base of unit where water tank seats. Any hint as to why


The water source (tank or bottle) sits tight on the platform and there is a plastic form known as a seal to prevent leakage. You need to replace the seal.

try to check the insulation of your drain pan because of your water came from your unit is cold that create moist on the tank when hit by hot air from sorrounding air apply insulation on the tank.

My whole house unit mdl #3500 leaks watter at the seam on the left tank when the tanks are toward you. the warrenty says 5 years and mine is about four, it has been leaking for the past three years but now...


Hey Tony, Thanks for the Question,
Does it specifically state that that replacement is 5 years or just parts? you have to read the fine print sorry to say, but if it is the whole unit then yes, they will replace the whole thing,
If its parts only then maybe they would send you out a new tank which more than likely would solve your problem too! hope that was helpful, let us know and please leave some feed back on how we did, thanks again,

Need to find a new water tank


Mine also cracked along the seam several years ago. I sealed the crack using two-part waterproof plastic epoxy (found at any hardware store.) Not really pretty to look at, but it hasn't leaked since!

Water Tank leaks all over the floor


This happened to me the second night of use.  Water all over the carpet and a dripping vent. I called customer service and they told me to remove the tank and filter, and run unit dry for an hour or so. Then restart it.  Worked fine after that.  I think we may have bumped it which is said to be the cause of most leaks.  Bummer is that after 5 night of use the grip on water tank slipped and the tank is in pieces.

LEAKS


Try to just fill the tank with water and set it upright on a table. If it leaks, the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. Order one at kaz.com (search using model#). I have had this tank leak if the special cap is not sitting properly on the base. Make sure that the steam tower is properly locked in place before you place the water tank in the reservoir. The cap on the tank has a spring release that has to be correctly lined up so it only releases water when the water level in the reservoir drops.

Fan is running but humidity is not changing


Q: My unit has been running for several hours. I hear the fan spinning, but I do not notice the water level in the tank decreasing.
A:
First, check the filter to ensure it is wet. If the pad appears dry, remove it from the Base and gently rinse under cool water. Reposition wet filter in the Base. You may also want to note the current moisture level in your home. If the humidity level is over 60% the unit will not put out much moisture
as your air is already saturated.

UV bulb and filter are user replacement items

Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 You should notice moisture on the widows in the room after unit has run for awile, this unit carries a 3 year warranty. More info coming...

4b54ac1.jpg Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 If water level in tank is dropping and fan runs then I'd say it is working.

OK?
Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 Q: I hear the fan turning, but I don’t see any mist. Is my humidifier operating properly?
A:
Dry air is pulled through the system and a fan disperses invisible, moisture balanced air. There is no
“mist” emitted. When operating normally you will feel only cool air coming from the unit. Monitor the
water level in your Tank/ Base. If you notice a decrease in the Water Tank over 24 hours then the unit
is operating normally.
