Why is my Geniani Humidifier Leaking?

This is most common in portable humidifiers and can often be a sign that your water tank is not securely fastened. Be sure to check that you have correctly secured your tank in place. 

In bigger home models such as the Huron, this is often a sign that something might be blocking your humidifier from releasing air, causing condensation and sweating of your humidifier, which can appear as leaking. It’s always advised to set your Huron Humidifier on a stand, table, or desk with nothing hanging over that might possibly obstruct its ability to provide fresh air.

Depending on you model and geniani humidifier instruction care guide, you can try  troubleshooting by:

  • Examining the water pressure or possibly resorting to connecting to the main water supply in your home;
  • You could also check the drainage pipe to make sure there is no blockage;
  • Check to see if the evaporating pad needs to be cleaned, based on your humidifier’s care guide;
  • Lastly, check to make sure nothing is obstructing the solenoid valve. 

    What do I do if my Geniani Humidifier stops working?

    There are a few possibilities as to why your humidifier may be lagging or not working all together:

    • It’s run out and you need to add water;
    • It’s not plugged in and needs power;
    • Something is obstructing its release of mist, causing it to sense over humidity and condensate, leading it to stop working inorder to prevent further leakage;
    • Something may be blocking the spray outlet such as debri or dust buildup.

    What does an orange light mean?

    An orange light means low humidity output level.

    What does a red light mean?

    A red light indicates that the humidifier is in standby mode. It’s also advised that you check if the surface is flat and solid.

    If you experience a red light blinking 3 times when it starts, this signifies that the filter needs to be changed.
