Sears must have changed back to the original manufacturer because this filter is much better than the last filter I bought for my humidifier. The previous one practically fell apart in the humidifier. So far so good with this one. It is keeping its shape and functions well.
The filters this year are horrible. We buy the same ones every year, but this time they're different. They were floppy coming out of the box, and barely stand up on their own when dry. As soon as water hit them they turned into mush and floated around in the water. The ribs ripped off the strip of glue while trying to salvage them. They are now floating around my humidifier performing no function at all besides making my humidifier look like a clogged toilet bowl. They even caused a fight among family members blaming each other for purchasing the wrong filters or installing them incorrectly. They are the right model number, just not the quality they used to be. I'd give them negative stars if I could.
Tried to order 2 Filters, Had to make 2 orders with double the shipping cost.
I buy these every year for my humidifier. I own a sears humidifier.
I wish we didn't have to give a star to post a review. These new wicks are absolute garbage. I purchased 2 packages last year to qualify for *************. One filter broke when installing it and another broke this year when trying to take it out of the box. The original filters had hot melt glue ridges on one side that held the folds of the wicking paper, the new filters had nothing for support. I'll not buy more of these.
The Sears store in Bowling Green, Ohio did not have the filters in stock so the gentlemen ordered them by computer. They were delivered to my address in a very reasonable time and I appreciated the free delivery. Thank you, Pat
