    After I made sure there is water in, and I turn the humidistat to ON or HIGH, I did not hear a click sound from the solenoid value, does it mean no power to the humidistat or the solenoid valve is not working?

First break or loosen the water line connection at the humidifier and if you get water then you know it is something else. While the heat is running and main blower is also running, turn the humidistat from low to high; if you hear a click in the solenoid valve (where you checked the water) then you know it has power and the humidistat works. anything deyond that call a good contractor.

    Yes, it sounds like there is no power (24v) going to the unit or it was not wired properly. I would have a qualified hvac contractor come in to fix-it and advise ther other contractor that you are going to notify the better business bureau.

No water flow through solenoid


The water flow through the humidifier is limited/controlled by an orifice. This small opening can easily clog. After disassembly use a small wire to clear the debris trapped in the small hole,

Hope this helps?

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...


Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

I just finished hooking up my new he 220a HUMIDIFIER


I have a HE220, HE 260 humidifier..by pass, flow thru. There is no water flow between the hot water tank and the humidifer. The water valve is on. Is there an inexpensive part I can replace myself first before calling a plumbing contractor?

I have a model #560..turning the humidistat forward until it "clicks" would cause the water to begin flowing..now, after the "click" is heard, the water does not flow into the reservoir. Do you think it's...


turn the saddle valve in and back out. sometimes the small pin hole for the water gets plugged with something over the summer when the units aren't running and just turning the valve in and back out clears it out and allows the water to flow. check to see that you have water flow at the solenoid and if you do then it is probably the solenoid that is bad.

My honeywell humidifier attachment on my furnace will not start after the summer with water running to it.I have the humidity cranked up, but the filter is still bone dry.


Humidifiers usually are wired up to ONLY come on when the Heat is on and the fan running....anyother time you check it it will not be powered or wet...turn your heat on , wait till the fan comes on...then turn up your humidistat you should hear a click if its a flow through type and water should start flowing from the top...or if its tyhe drum style with the sponge...you should see it then turning...if it doesnt turn the pad/spindle may not be installed properly...if only fits one way

I have a Honeywell House humidifier HE 225A-1006.


In order of probability:
1) (incorrect wiring) Make sure that humidistat is in SERIES wired with the furnace.
2) (shorted wires) Check that two wires to humidistat are not touching...use your glasses if you need them!
3) (bad humidistat) disconnect the humidistat and put an ohmmeter accoss the two terminals when it is turned on you should read 0 ohms, and when off it should read infinate ohms, if not pass both these tests, you need new humidistat.
That is it, there are no other possibilites!

We have an old Aprilaire humidifier (Manual adjust)and having problems trying to figure out how to shut it off-for the summer.


close the by pass air flow valve. shut off the water supply and finally flow the thermostat wire to the transformer or the controller and shut off or disconnect. Unit should be serviced before winter. Cell may need to be replaced

Water leak


Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.

Water flow through humidifier


I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.
