This is my second one, my other one lasted 7 years, it was still working, just decided to upgrade, be sure to buy Humidifier Bacteriostat Model S1709 for your sunbeam, I found out by using this additive with the machine helps keep it nice and clean, it will take about and hour to and hour and a half the first time you fill the tank up for it to function properly and balance out, but it is a must have for folks like me that has a boiler system that puts out dry heat, since using one of these I no longer wake up with my sinuses all dried out, and no more nose bleeds either from the extreme dryness. I do not work for sunbeam or have any stock in the company, I bought this for actual use.
Love the tower design and it's nice and quiet. Would buy another in a heartbeat. Might have to...family borrowed to try and I'm not sure I'll get back since they love it too. :)
My son is so happy with this product. He can now breathe through the night. He no longer wakes up coughing badly and a throat so dry that he cannot talk. He says that it is very easy to maintain. It was taller than he expected and he put it on his desk. But he is very happy with this humidifier.
Nice machine, effectively controls room humidity, BUT (1) the fan is very noisy (too noisy to sleep with), (2) Water filling the evaporation pan makes a loud belching noise, (3) the tank is impossible to set down when removed from the machine and therefore very difficult to refill.
This is a great humidifier! It's much quieter than our old one. ONLY complaint: The water tank is a bad design. It will not stand up when filling. You have to hold it under the faucet with both hands because of the wierd shape of the tank. It will slip out of your hand if trying to hold it with one hand. There are NO handles to hold it with. You need a third hand to turn the water on and off. Humidifier works great and makes a big difference in our house. Very quiet. We have one upstairs in the master bedroom, and I am going to pick up another one for the living room!
I liked the small footprint, the clean look, the ease of reading the level of water. But the fan's performance was uneven and finally quit working altogether. And the noise level was a little high, especially as I had to run it on high all the time.
We bought this 4 years ago and it's amazing. I used to get 3 or more sinus infections a year requiring a Z-pak at last resort. I have only had one sinus infection in the past four years. The sound is a soft purr.... I can't be without it!
Works great so far and was surprised how quiet it is.
Like the large water tank--more time between refill.
Only for a SMALL room.
This is the second of this model I have bought. We have been running the first one for last winter and half of this, and it has done great. We also have the almost identical Holmes predecessor that has worked equally well. However, a couple weeks after buying this one, it began rattling loudly, making it impractical to use, because we can't sleep with the noise. I pulled apart the housing (difficult, don't recommend) to find the source of the noise and as best I can tell it just a loose bearing. I don't recommend Sunbeam products. I have also had a Sunbeam vaporizer and a toaster that have failed.
Bought this item on Nov 11, 2013. Set it up according to the directions (just to make sure I don't screw it up) and plugged it in. The fan on the top of this thing is so loud there is no way you can sleep in the same room as it. It rattles, a lot! So if you are looking for something that is quiet so that you can sleep at night, don't buy this! It is certainly not worth the price I paid for it. Going back to WalMart today!
I bought two of these towers and both starting making loud noise from the motors after about a week
This product will not humidify a small room we have to change filters about every two weeks says they should last for one month would not recomend product.
I purchased this unit about two months ago. Filter gauge indicated that a new filter needed to be changed about once a week. (Even though the filters looked perfectly fine to me.) After cleaning and changing filter it would run perfectly for about two days. After that unit would not use the water. It was left in the tank. After cleaning this week, fan does not work. I give up!!!
Had this unit about a month now. Within the second week, the bearing in the fan became very noisy. We still have the unit operating, but it makes a terrible bearing noise. The plastic fan is very unbalanced and will fail early on. I thought I was buying a quality unit for almost $70. The previous Hunter unit that I had lasted me three seasons of use. I have to physically hit the unit several times on the side to get the grinding noise to go away. I cannot recommend this unit to anyone. Save your money and buy a better brand.
The humidifier does a nice job putting air into the house and is relatively quiet on the high fan speed. On low, however, the fan blade continually clicks the edge of the humidifier housing - noisy and distracting. Needed to be another humidifer yesterday, opted for a different brand.
This product arrived broken the fan hits the inside. Poorly made cheap plastic. Don't buy this
The very first time I turned unit on the fan motor seemed like it struggled to keep the fan turning. Each and every time I would turn it on the fan motor again and again struggled. Finally after 1 season the motor froze and just hummed. Very weak fan. Now have a Honeywell tower humidifier and so far pleased at the fan speed.
Performs flawlessly. Will have to change filters this week. Have had it two weeks.
very quiet, and does the job , couldn't ask for more
