This is a low quality product. The filters are not built to last. They fall apart easily. The prior model were much better. I am surprised Sears have done nothing to address quality in the past 3 years. There are numerous complaints that are similar to mine.
Meets the specs and works well
We had this humidifier for a few years and thought it didn't work. But When I found these new filters and installed them the output was increased so much and put ore humidity in the room.
It works very will with the Humidifier is was designed for. The filter last about 6 weeks before it needs to be replace. We use it for a five gallon Humidifier, which we sometimes need to fill twice a day. Are main heat is with wood. Both the Humidifier and the Filter are excellent products. It's nice to keep a extra filter on hand when winter ends, so when fall arrives your set up is very quick and easy.
This filter is not the same as it used to be.....the changes made to it are not for the better....we had no problem with it for 20 yrs.....this year we cannot keep the humidity level where we would like it in the house....we are not having to fill the humidifier nearly enough as in past years.
I bought this for a friend of mine & his roommate, there is a clip that you need to insert & it is very stiff at times. They went through two clips, before I made him take it to the store & have the employee put that one in. I was thinking that since he had an issue with his hand he was causing the problem, but I wasn't taking anymore cautions. After it went up NO MORE PROBLEMS!!! Love it.
I have been buying Kenmore Humidifier Replacement Filters for 18 years. I am very satisfied with both my Kenmore Humidifier as well as the Replacement Filters.
simple replacement filter for an easy-to-use whole house humidifier.
I have a review on here that praises these filters. I don't know what has happened to the quality but now they are worse than the generic ones. The newer ones with the glue strips on both sides end up smashing under their own weight, leaving a gaping hole at top the air rushes through without picking up moisture. Bought 2 boxes this year for me and my fathers house, both collapsed under their own weight. Since the generics don't work well, this now renders this model of humidifier useless. Thanks for the let down Kenmore, now I have to shop for another humidifier that uses quality filters. Sears used to mean quality, sadly, like everything else in America, not so much now.
