The other day I came across a Sohmer upright whose humidifier pads hadn't been changed in years. They were covered with a thick yellow scale and I had to pry them off. The bar they were resting on was covered with thick black plastic crud, which took a long time to clean off. I don't see too many of these; I'm guessing the black plastic was a coating from that bar. Should that bar be replaced? How can I test it?

Replacing neglected systems is best. (In my opinion)
