Whole house- bypass humidifier help

I bought a home 2 yrs again and it had a desert springs whole house humidifier attached to the duct work. It worked great the 1st yr. Now it just doesn't humidify. It has power as evidenced by the spinning once the furnace kicks in, it also has water though the water is cold. I've been puzzled with the this thing for about a yr and debating on just putting in a new one but I cant understand why this one inst functioning properly. It was hot air flow and no air leaks that I can detect but inside the unit it doesn't humidity and thus the whole house isn't getting humidity.... any ideas?

Did you replace the filter or media? If its all calcified it will block any humidifying application.

Welcome to the forums.

Just one start off question.... a humidifier in Florida ?

Desert Springs humidifiers are predominately the rotary type and require yearly maintenance for proper operation.
