Question about Aprilaire 600 Humidifier

1 Answer

Leaking not sure what to do about it

We have this Aprilaire Model 600 It was installed about 3 years ago and it is now leaking - we put a 2 gal pitcher under the unit and have to empty this 3 times a day - I can't afford a to have someone come out because we are on limited income and when this was installed I never received a booklet or instruction manual - I need to get one of these - hopefully this is just a minor repair - also I seen something about a filter - how often would I need to change this and would this be causing my problem?
Thank You
Theresa

SOURCE: Aprilaire 600 doesn't seem to be running at all

check list
1.check the clamp on the pipe where water line connects
is the hole clogged (water turned off)wont take long
2.Is water flowing all the way to resevoir after turnnig water on
loosen line at reservoir
3.jiggle float water should enter the reservoir inlet to float valevel
somestime cake up,clean float off
4.Remove pump cap clean impeller and standpipe
5.clean reservoir,and close everything up

Usually the hole in the pipe is clogged up in step 1 or the float is sticking if there is no evidence of water in the reservoir

The water is only dispensing over the evaporator pad while the furnace is in the heating mode. When the furnace finishes cycling the humidifier will also stop.

My Aprilaire 600 is dripping from the front toward the bottom... Can I fix it myself or do I need my maintenance guy?


Hello, check to make sure that the drain line is not blocked, this could cause the water to back up in the humidifier and leak, also make sure the water panel is clean and free of any mineral deposits.

2 months into the heating season I noticed a large puddle around my heater. the Aprilaire 600 unit was leaking. The distrution tray had a red substance around the water holes. Also the overflow drain line...


Mold can really cause problems with humidifiers-
They do need to be serviced, cleaned up, and something like weak bleach used to kill mold spores, -- get it all tidy and clean!
Were you able to clean out the drain line?-- and is it draining now?
And is the float valve shutting off the water flow, before it reaches the overflow drain pipe?
Another concern would be the soaking pad-- Has it been changed recently?

Tell us more--

Aprilaire 600 was leaking water from bottom of unit...subsequently filter pad replaced and all parts cleaned of residue; drain tube cleaned and is draining...The problem is that water is still dripping...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you must have a defective water inlet valve, and its letting water in, just a little.. it maybe dirt in the valve, clogging it.

The Aprilaire is leaking around the casing attached to furnace


How old is the filter? Filters should be replaced every year. If its a new filter check to make sure the little hose is inside the hole at the tom of the filter.
