When your humidifier requires new pin connectors, there are a few things to keep in mind before you make your purchase. Pin connectors are utilized in the electronics of the humidifier for controlling the on and off functions, auto functions and airflow processes. When replacing pin connectors with new parts, you need to consider a few things before you make the change.

Tip1 – Pin Count

The most obvious consideration is the pin count. There are varying pin connectors that use different pin counts such as a two-pin, three-pin or eleven-pin connector. You should first remove and inspect the current pin connector to determine the required pin count.

Tip 2 – Amp and Voltage

It is important to know the required amp and voltage required from the pin connector. If your new pin connector does not have adequate amp and voltage, your unit will not function at all or will not function properly. If the amp and voltage of the pin connector is more than what is necessary, you could damage the humidifier or burn out parts of the humidifier.

Tip 3 – Fit

When installing a new pin connector, remember that a pin connector will only fit one way. You should not need to force the connector into place. If this is the case, you could possibly have an incorrect pin connector and need to purchase the correct type.
