Question about Honeywell HE220A1019 Whole House Humidifier Humidifier
I have installed the Honeywell HE220A humidifier. When the furnace cuts out the water continues to flow through the drain tube. As far as I can see it's wired correctly, ay least as far as the instructions go. Any help would be appreciated!
I am having the same problem. I have had my humidifier for about 5 years now and I just started having the problem where the water continuously flows through the solenoid. I took apart the solenoid by removing the fittings from both sides. When I did that, I noticed that there was a hole in the metal that allowed me to see through to the other side. Apparently, it had corroded and and broken through, allowing the water to pass through the solenoid without really going through the valve within the solenoid. There are several sites that sell replacements for about $70, which is not cheap, but cheaper than buing a new humidifier for $120. Here is one site I found: http://www.iaqsource.com/product.php/honeywell/32001639-002/?product=112783&category=1142

The reason why your SAIL switch stays there after blowing on it is because you have 2 springs attached to the switch. If you read the instructions you need to take off one of the springs (silver color) when your return air is downward and vice versa with the red colored spring. You should only have 1 spring attached after a successful installation.

Unless you are using a current sensing relay or sail switch, you need to get the humidifier power from the blower motor supply so it only operates when the blower is on.
Since you can manually control the humidifier, there is not a fault with the solonoid.
