odor from air purifier

by Beth Moore

My new Idylis had an unpleasant odor when running, such as a "new lumber" smell. Finally the odor went away and it was fine.

I put in new filters and the odor, when operating, is back again.

Why do I have this unpleasant smell?

odor from Idylis air humidifier
by: Rick Hinds Tenn.

I just purchases the same brand humidifier and am using it for the first time, I am also experiencing a new lumber odor. Is it something to do with the filters ?

Not sure why it would have an odor. Glad it went away!
