, this cool mist tower is ideal for medium rooms. It provides a refreshingly cool, invisible mist, as well as a digital humidistat which offers precise humidity control for your optimal comfort.

I got this off the Sears website so either the room you're trying to make humid is too large, or the humidistat needs to be set properly. Also make sure there is plenty of water in the tank.

    I'm using it in my bedroom and I've used half of a tank already and it doesn't go past 35% and I have to keep the fan on it on high for it to get that much out. 35% is better than 16%, which is where it was before I started using it. But the book says that 40-50% is best level.

SOURCE: humidifier by Hunter

if you are constantly heating the house, your heter element in the furnace is drawing in and drying out the air you are humidifying. Heat the house, and then turn on the humidifier while the heater is not running. Is your humidifier able to do your entire house (whole house) or just a small room unit?

SOURCE: aprilaire 600 humidity level too low

you may try running your blower 100% of the time.this should allow the humidifier to stay on even when your not heating. once the humidity level gets to where you want it, you may be able to put the fan selector back to auto. also you mentioned you have a variable blower. this is great if it is set up to run at approx. 20% fan speed when it is not heating or cooling. at 20% you can circulate enough air through the house to humidify without being able to hear the noise of the blower. it will really increase the comfort level of the house if you tend to have hot and cool spots. if it was not set up this way, contact the installer and ask if they can do this for you.

Okay, I just started getting this same deal with my 7133 on it's third season. I found in a blog that if you hold down the button that controls the heat while turning the mist knob on, it resets the machine. It worked. The red light went green and I turned off the heat button for cool air and the upper light still stayed green. Fingers crossed this continues to work. good luck!

SOURCE: Humidity too low

But by putting it in manual mose, you have to shut it sdown every season. With it in auto mode, and an outdoor sensor hooked up, you won't have to mess with it.

SOURCE: Holmes HM5601 quit working

I had the same problem with my Holmes HM5601 humidifer unit - right out of the box. I almost returned the unit to the store, but was able to figure-out the problem. Not enough water had been filling the heating section (where that black knob-like protrusion is) and the lack of enough water had caused the unit to shut-off soon after plugging it in. The problem is in valve at the bottom of the water tank! The valve is a factory defect. It needs to open more when you sit the water tank onto the base so water fills the reservoir. I had solved the problem by going to the hardware store and purchasing some small, rubber pads or feet. These rubber pads are the type used to place under things where you want to protect a table-top from being scratched or you want the item not to slide too easily on a table-top. These rubber feet or pads have an adhesive on the bottom of them. Find the size that matches the diameter of the valve stem on the bottom of the water tank. Once installed, the valve should open and close with your finger without the rubber pad interferring with the operation of the valve. The pad, if installed properly, makes contact with the water reservoir base when you placed the water tank down onto that base. The valve open a bit more allowing water to pass-thru and fill the water reservoir. Water fills the heating section as needed and the unit runs perfectly after! The round rubber pad I had used was about an 1/8 inch thick and 1/2 inch in diameter.

Here is all the info I found Ser # 50908272 Holmes Humidifier HM-300


It depends on how humid it is in the conditioned space, how well sealed the conditioned room is, and how high you have the humidifier set. If you have low humidity in your conditioned space and you are asking for a higher humidity number, it could go through quite a bit of water. If your room is not sealed well, it will allow lower conditioned air into the room and put a larger demand on the humidifier

What is the gallons per 24hour output capacity of this unit?


There are several variables that will determine the gallons used per 24 hour period.
  • At what humidity level do you have it set for? The higher the level, the faster consumption.
  • How much air movement is there in the are in the house/area of the humidifier?
  • How air tight is your home?.
  • How may people occupy the home?
  • Whats the temperature setting for your primary heat source?
Let's assume that everything is perfect. Your humidifier holds approximately 6 gallons of water, when completely full. The ideal humidity level depending on the outside air temperature is 40 to 50%. Once the humidity level you have it set for is reached, the humidifier shuts off. When the humidity level drops significantly, it turns back on. So, as you can see, it's difficult to come up with an exact figure. But based on if everything was perfect, about 1.5 to 2 quarts per hour or almost 6 gallons in 24 hours.

For more details on this humidifier call 1-800-546-5637.

Hope this helps you.

Won't humidify past 30% in a 90sf bedroom


The most probable reason that the humidifier does not reach the levels you describe is because you said you had the unit in your bedroom.

Bedrooms typically contain materials that are known as "hygroscopic." What that means in plain English is that items such as the bedding, mattress, any carpeting, wood, curtains, you, etc. all absorb moisture , kinda like a sponge. Since that moisture is being held by these materials, the air itself contains less by percentage. 25-30% humidity is actually pretty good for any room, especially in colder climates and higher humidity levels can lead to the production of mold, condensation on windows, etc., which are not good things. The good news is that reasonable humidity levels are healthier for textiles such as carpeting, cloth, and so on because the fibers won't dry out and crack. Dust is also reduced, but again, only to a certain level.

If your humidifier is reaching 30% it's probably working ok.

Lack of humidity


Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)

Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.

Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.

Hope this helps.
