While it was a little frustrating to put together as the plastic parts need to snap together and you need a screw driver to wedge the plastic base for the top to fit properly. Make sure you wait 30 minutes after filling, for the wick to absorb the water, as the fan won't work. Also be sure the over hang on the back of the wick filter is hung on the over hang at the back of the base unit. But we started with 34% humidity and in less than 24 hrs it came up to 50%. We used level 3 on the fan, as the higher levels are noisy, but at this level and result for what this product is supposed to do, it was great. Easy to fill, no taking out bottles, just pour into the reservoir. The humidistat on the unit registers too high. I put tape over it and use my small humidistat to measure the humidity. They could have left this part off. Anyway if you want the humidity to raise quickly, this is your item. A lot better than the old filter belt circular kinds.

This Essick Air ED11 800 humidifier held much promise... until I actually started using it. Let me be clear, ultimately it works but not as efficiently as it should.

First of all, upon assembly, I noticed how flimsy some of the parts are, like the float, the reservoir door, and the chassis itself. It feels like if you're not careful handling it, you'll end up with something broken in no time. The casters can be useful, but only if you use them on a hard surface because on plush carpet they're far too small and they make it difficult to move the unit, which can cause you to spill water. Since I wasn't planning on moving mine around I decided to forgo the casters altogether.

The second problem I noticed with the unit when I started using it was how loud the fan is. Initially, I thought it started at the fastest speed and all I needed to do to make it quiet was to dial down the fan speed, but to my surprise (and my wife's immediate complaints) it was already at the slowest speed! Messing with the fan speed button increased the noise level unacceptably high. For me this is a show-stopper. If you're like me and you like your home quiet you will NOT like the amount of noise this humidifier makes. In contrast, a bedroom unit we have is whisper quiet in the low setting and fairly loud in the high setting.

Another issue I found unacceptable was the built-in hygrometer gave completely inaccurate readings, verified by a standalone device I own and by the second bedroom humidifier I have. This makes it impossible to dial in your preferred moisture level on the humidistat and use the Essick Air ED11 as it was intended (in automatic mode), since the unit will either run continuously or turn on or off too often.

Works great for me. I haven't tested the hygrometer as other people have, but I don't go by a number - I go by how often my blankets are zapping me and if my bloody nose goes away. I don't need a specific number for that. It is odd that sometimes it comes on for about 5 minutes before it turns itself off, but I figure it's saving me electricity so no big deal since my previously mentioned issues are taken care of.

I like having some white noise in the background when I sleep - not loud, about the noise level of my oscillating fan when I have that on in the summer. I keep the fan set to 1 and it's fine. It's even right at the end of my bed.

BUZZING NOISE ISSUE: I did have to fix the constant buzzing that started after about a month of use. They zip tied a cable to the fan casing so after a while it started buzzing. I took the thing apart, cut the zip tie and fasted that cable to another cable to keep it from touching the fan casing. Problem fixed! Obviously this is at my own risk but it was also past the warranty/return policy at the time so why not? I emailed the company about this issue so hopefully they can fix it.

I had a humidifier that held 5 gallons in the reservoir so this needs filled more often, though it's an easy pour in design rather than having to drag canisters to the sink and use a hose to fill it.

I think it's equally constructed as the humidifiers I have seen everywhere else. It's not meant to be moved a lot or set things on top of. It just needs to support the weight of the fan so I'm unsure why others are complaining about it being "flimsy".

I knocked it down a star simply because I had to take it apart. The reservoir size and everything was known before I bought it, can't blame them for that!

I have had this unit for several years. It has outlasted all "Sears" brands and models.

Secrets to making it work: I use the 1041 wicks. Every two weeks or so, I take it into the bathroom, pull out the wick and using a hand held shower, spray off the wick thoroughly. This helps lower the mineral build-up and the wick lasts longer. Also I change wicks about every two months. So I need about three for the heating season.

Yes the electronic "humidistat" doesn't work. Simple, I set the unit to a higher humidity than what is displayed. When I want to run it, I turn the unit on. When I want it off, I turn it off. And I use a separate humidity gauge. This one works wonderfully:


Taylor 1523 Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer and Hygrometer

As for noise, I only run it on the 2, 3 or 4 level. Yes, you can crank it up, but just like any fan, the more you crank it the louder it gets... and I can hear the TV just fine even when this is running...

It's much easier to carry a bucket of water to this unit to fill it up than clumsy bottles to drag out and carry elsewhere.

GREAT humidifier and I've had this one for several years and if I need another one, I'll hope to get another one of these.

Here's another hint. Don't mount it on the wheels that come with and then put the entire unit on a towel or carpeting scrap. Also helps if you spill a bit of water when filling.

Do NOT forget the bacteriastat either, but be careful when using this additive, as always. And yes, it is normal for the wick itself to be about half dry (at the top) and half wet (at the bottom). The entire wick does NOT need to be saturated soaking wet for this to work as the "well" of water is only the few inches at the bottom...
