Hello again everyone. Decided to be prepared for our next winter by dealing with a small issue with my drip tray for my general aire humidifier 1040. The problem is the drip tray is hanging on by a thread. You can't see in the pics but there are two screws that attach it to the main unit but the screws have been removed so many times that they can't "bite" into the main housing, which is plastic, any more. Any ideas how to fix this?

Also, do you think I should replace the solenoid valve since I'm at it? It works fine but is old.

Can't you just throw a slight bigger screw in there? Go to hardware store and find one similar to the old one and fit it with a proper sized jam nut with a small washer. Do this for all the screws. Done
