Questions & Answers

can you remove the bottles for refilling - how heavy?

Asked by: Brandy
Yes, they simply lift out, very easy. They are 2.5 gallons each, so think about carrying two and a half gallons of milk and you'll be close to the weight.

Asked by: Snork
Thank you for contacting AIRCARE, Snork! Yes, the 696 400HB does have casters, which makes it easier to relocate your humidifier anytime to anywhere in your home. Be sure to avoid placing your humidifier near windows or doors that lead to the outside or near any heat sources. If you have other questions or concerns, please contact our sales department at 1-800-547-3888. Thanks, Melissa.

Is it easy to fill with hose. I have bad arms and would find it hard to refill the bottles by tap.

Asked by: Kathy
The bottles are filled from an opening in the bottom. The short hose provided requires filling by tap. You could extend the hose, but still, the bottle must be lifted and it's heavy.

What are the dimensions of this unit? How is it filled and about how often? Is it easy to clean? Filters?

Asked by: iodine
28"Lx23"Wx16"depth - you need to make sure to leave space between the wall and the humidity detector (located on the power cord) so that it registers properly. I keep mine set on the level 1 fan and humidity on 40% and only fill tank 1 once daily and tank 2 about every 4-5 days. Filing frequency will be based on the fan setting, humidity setting, and square feet you are using it within. Obviously if you have it set at a higher humidity you will need to fill it more frequently. I use the bacteriostatic liquid so that cleaning is not difficult and it has a filter that I have not yet had to replace. It just sits within the unit, so it would not be difficult to replace once it needs replacement.

5.6 Gal. Evaporative Humidifier for 3,600 sq. ft. is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 33.

The beginning of the third season, the motor started rattling at any speed over 2. I ran it this way through season, but decided to look for a motor replacement today as I start the new season. However, the motor comes apart and I noticed a lot of endplay in the armature. They use some sort of o-ring to take up the endplay, but it wears out after a while. I found some 5/16 nylon washers at my local hardware store and put them just inside the bushings on the motor. This left just a bit of endplay, and the unit can now be run at any speed without rattling up a storm. I also put some lithium grease on the shaft to lubricate the motor bushings before putting back together. The bushings were still tight, so probably will get many more years out of this unit. Too bad Essik doesn't address this issue. My parents replaced the motor in theirs around the third season - and imagine it was the same simple issue.

I was very happy with this purchase in the beginning and for the most part I still am but for some reason the second tank has stopped "draining". The humidifier will say it needs filling and I lift up the tank and it is full. I have it on a level plane and it worked for the first two or three times I had to fill it but after that nothing I do seems to get it to work. Not sure what is going on. As far as I can tell nothing happened between it working and then not working - at least the other tank still works.
