Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and works well Not too hard to install and works well. I am in a fairly new house and after the initial dry-out of the house the indoor humidity dropped way too low ~20%. I installed the humidifier as per their instructions and after about a week the humidity levels were being controlled in a comfortable range. Keep in mind that a lot of wood and other materials will absorb the moister out of the air and it will take a while to reach a stable level so you have to be patient. This was the same humidifier that I installed in my parents house around 15+ years ago. I picked up this one because of the problem free operation at their house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from this product Home Depot staff were GREAT. The product...terrible. Purchased the humidifier, installed it and it didn't work. Followed the trouble shooting, still nothing. Home Depot staff said bring in it and exchange it. Done. New one installed and it didn't work either, even after trouble shooting with the manufacturer. They said they would send out a new part. Arrived one week later, installed the new part and it started working...for about 30 seconds and then the whole unit crapped out and nothing would turn on. Took it to Home Depot and exchanged it for a different brand (Honeywell) that is now installed and working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work Im a general contractor and have installed numerous Humidifiers in the past. Unfortunately i tried 2 of these Wait 6000 units and neither oif them worked. Ended up going with another Honeywell unit as at least they work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from one star only because I can't give no star at all! problems installing. expensive fragile part breaks I'm out a trip to Hardware store and $45 for a part. then it doesn't work. wasted time my installer charging me while he phones to get support. free optional (never mentioned in installation guide) parts. Wait for parts. install, more cost. still doesn't work another support call to get instructions on disabling some of the features on the humidifier so it will finally work. It worked 1 year. now I can't get it to work. It is a piece of garbage and bad design from top to fragile bottom. DO NOT BUY

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wait 6000 not worth the price or the time I have installed a few humidifiers of different types over the years, and I have to say this is the least reliable model I have ever installed. The unit worked well for the first year, humidity in the house was sufficient. The second year I replaced the evaporator element at the beginning of the heating season but I noticed that the humidity level in the house was not increasing as much as the previous year. I checked to make sure the water flow was getting to the pad. Checked all of the things that were recommended in the trouble shooting, gave the unit more time and still humidity level wouldn’t increase. I mentioned this problem to a friend and he told me he was having the exact same experience. He had only had the unit installed for 2 years and by the 3rd year it looked like it was working the same as previous years but the humidity level was not getting any higher. He contacted Honeywell support and tried everything they recommended but nothing changed. I checked the unit last week and made sure that it was working. I checked the humidity level last night and again today and it is still at 20% the lowest level it can be. I just looked at the price and I certainly will not give $210 for a unit that only works for a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job if properly installed Originally I was going to write a negative review about this product, but it is really all about the installation. I started with a poor installation (flexible duct was sagging), but after I tightened the duct up (per the instructions in the manual) the unit worked fine. I do recommend buying an extra filter and changing them every month or so if you are in a hard-water area like we are. The filters can be descaled using common white vinegar. The DIY instructions are easy to follow and do result in a product that works (if you follow them). I have yet to see how well it humidifies our current home in the dead of winter, but it works. We had this unit in our previous home and it worked very well. If you have issues getting it to work, I recommend reading the troubleshooting part of the instruction booklet or reading online blogs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wait 6000 Flow-Through Humidifier. I purchased this humidifier based on my good experience with the earlier Wait 5000 model. The old model's operation was based on closing a limit switch when the fan started. My new high efficiency furnace did not create enough pressure at low fan speed, therefore the humidifier did not work. Wait 6000 model was supposed to work based on temperature rise and fall in the bypass duct, without the need for furnace interlock or a limit switch to sense the flow. While the concept is good, the built quality is very low. The electronics did not start and stop the unit as it was supposed to. I called the customer service, and after much discussion, I ended up hard wiring it to the furnace thermostat connection. The solenoid valve opens when the thermostat calls for heating and the humidity sensor senses a return humidity lower than the setting. It now works but not as good, since the solenoid closes as soon as the thermostat is satisfied, while hot air still flows through the bypass duct. As a result it cannot add sufficient humidification. Later, it developed leak at solenoid outlet connection (Factory connection) Tightening the nut made it worse.I had to fix it by replacing a faulty plastic sleeve. Compared to the older model, the new unit uses cheaper components. For example, the old unit had an American made solenoid valve with metal body. The new model has a Taiwanese all plastic valve which does not look as if it is going to last.. I recommend potential buyers to check out Honeywell humidifiers.

Humidisense Light not on

I just installed a WAIT 6000 humidifier, the unit has power I can manually adjust the humidity; however the green humidisense light will not come on. I verified water and air flow to unit. Air getting to unit is hot, unit is showing 15% humidity however never cycles on. I replaced a faulty general air humifidier and placed in the same location.

Where can I buy a new water restrictor for my Wait 6000? Mine is completely pluged. And I've tried everything to unplug it !!!

This is the small restrictor that is found in the water line itself.

You should call the customer service and order the part. At the same time you should order a new filter, which is installed at the inlet side of the solenoid.

Purchased a Model 6000 Humidifier last season. It worked great.

This season it worked fine for 4 weeks, then developed a leak. All the water lines appear fine and not leaking. The water is flowing from the body of the unit. I cannot find anything in your brochure indicating trouble shooting matters. I have since shut down the unit and will await any response. Otherwise I will contact our local Home Depot.

Make sure the filter housing is "connected" properly, and also that the filter sits in the housing as it should. If not, water will leak out.

Why is humidity not increasing even when unit is turning ON and water is flowing through it?

I bought the house a few months ago and this came installed. I powered it up and all it says all the time for the last three weeks is that humidity is 20%. It turns ON ok i suppose when the furnace kicks in. It is expelling water from the drain that is installed and the filter was changed and the filter frame descaled. I also made sure there is constriction in the water depositer above the filter. I had initially set the electronic humidistat to 30% but nothing changed. I changed it to 45% to force more water through it but the humidity is showing still at 20%. I am just wasting water now. I have an infant in the house - I need help!

hello first you have to understand how many times your furnace goes on/off and for how long because once your furnace is on humidifier green light on your house start getting humidity depends on furnace heat cycle. you can see the improvement in 4 to 5 weeks. I installed more then 20units so far and all my customers are very happy.

What do I set it at for a house temp of 24 ? How do I get more humidity in my home?

Asked by: Anonymous
The maximum indoor relative humidity level should be set according to the outside temperature, to prevent excesive condensation on the windows. In Newmarket 30% should be fine for Jan/ Feb. And before and after the coldest part of winter I would put 35~40%. Health Canada's website says: Rules of Thumb To prevent window condensation during the heating season, the recommended indoor RH is 30 per cent to 50 per cent. When it is below -10°C (14°F) outdoors, recommended indoor RH is 30 per cent.

I get no response when activating the humidity set point buttons with the main power button in the ON position

The question applies to a brand new WAIT 6000 humidifier.
Asked by: Anonymous
In my Wait 6000 takes some time for the unit to open the water valve (you hear the solenoid clicking and see the LED come on) after the fan started blowing air. It can also depend on the inlet air temperature; if it is not hot enough yet, the unit won't start. Wait (no pun intended) until the incoming air is hot.
