I just got mine and I have to tell everyone to read your manuals! Luckily I do. I just happened to read the reviews here today for giggles and noticed the first two reviews people were complaining about the tanks. The manual says that the right tank empties first. Until the right tank is empty the left one will remain full. I've been using mine for a few days now and BOTH TANKS WILL EMPTY. The right one goes first and once its totally empty the left one will empty. Some people could save themselves a lot of money and time if they'd read the directions. Glad I was taught to do that....lol. Thanks Kenmore for the great products. This is my third and I'll continue to get more.
Purchased this humidifier on Oct 28 2013...it's now Nov 4 2013 and the unit has quit working. The display stays on reads so called current humidity in house but I have a separate readout that says it's 10% less humid in the house, so not accurate. Even if I turn humidity level up and fan speed to F3 it does not turn on. I have followed all the instructions for setup which is basically making sure it's level, placed away from heat duct, away from outside wall. It has water, float is activating switch for fans but nothing. Frustrating part is emptying and boxing the unit back up for return and also finding out after being on hold for sometime with my local Sears store that the 2 units they are showing as being in inventory are not, they have no replacement for me. What has happened to Kenmore products? Made in ?
The caps on the fill bottles are very brittle and will fall apart after moderate use. Both of my caps are leaking and for two plastic caps plus the cost to ship them are half the price of the whole unit!!!! I just don't understand how you can make a unit out of inferior material and charge so much for it. I honestly recommend never buying anything from sears.
We had an older model of this same one for over 5 years thay was left in our house when we bought it and just loved so replaced it with the same thing.
This humidifier works great for our entire house, not just our family room. Only down side is the filters which are four in number and probably will need to replaced several times a year.
I purchased this to increase humidity in my 2900 sq ft. house. The price and capabilities seemed good. My parents had a unit like this growing up so I thought my experience would be something familiar. This humidifier's design is cheap and the unit has components that didn't work. The first one had the right fan burn out after the first day and after having to return it about 30 miles from my home because that was the only Sears that had them in stock, the second one had water reservoirs that did not release the water into the chamber to be humidified. I ordered a non-Kenmore model from ****** today which included *************.
This humidifier helps our house from being so dry
Provides plenty of humidity for my whole house. A+
We have a large main floor and this product covers the area very well.
