He 260a wiring w/humidistat

Ok. This should be simple with only 4 wires. Humidistat and humidifer are connected into one wire now leaving two wires. I have a comfort maker 90% furnace that is 2-3 years old so no need for the transformer or sail switch, right? I do have a Hum 24v connection on the board. Where do I connect the remaining wire from the H-stat and where do I connect the remaining wire from the humidifier? I am starting to wonder if the solenoid on my brand new he260 is bad. Thanks.

I have an AprilAire 550A with bad humidistat. Can't find replacement. Got a 550 but wiring not right. Not sure what to do!


I believe they just updated model number descriptions. The basic design of that humidifier hasn't changed much over the years. I would go to their website and look for the one that is simiar to your model and get the humidistat for it. They are pretty basic devices as far as what the humidistats do. 24v power and common

Hello, in order to turn your humidifier on with the furnace the 120 volts coming from your humidifer you must hook it up to a step down transformer, then the transformer will provide 24 volts to you humidistat and solenoid valve. So you need a wire from the HUM on your control board to transformer primary side and a wire from neutral on the board to primary side of transformer. Then you need low voltage wire from secondary side of transformer to humidistat from humidistat to humidifier.

Humidifier will not turn on (no fan, no water flow)

A breakdown diagram of parts etc above.

Shows you the HE360A.
To me it sounds like it is wired incorrectly, the solenoid should NOT get too hot at all. The PDF above shows wiring data.

Wiring issue with the Honeywell HE360A Humidifier


Maybe I can help. this is 24v so it doestn't matter which wire goes where so here goes. 2 wires from humidistat go to furnace, split one of the wires(not both) so they reach the yellow wires on the humidifier. with marettsconnect one of the split wires to one of the yellow wires. do the same to the other split wire and yellow wire. what you should get is one wire from humidistat to furnace then one wire from humidifier to humidistat and one from humidifier to furnace. hope this helps

Continous water flow on a 1042lh humidifer


theholts220 - Sounds like they needed to install a bit larger transformer . You can also buy a A 50 Sensing relay that attaches to the wires for your motor and when you turn on the furnace it will allow the power to go to the humidistat. Very strange though they do not use a lot of power. Check and make sure the wires are not pinched or touching metal somewhere.


TLuzzo - The humidistat seems to be working when you turn it down. The wires for the solenoid should be hooked up to your furnace circuit board. The instruction manual will tell you where. If you dont have a spot on your circut board the A 50 sensing reley is they way to go. They are inexpensive

Thanks for your question Mike,
The wiring for your humidistat and solenoid are fairly simple, you will need 24volt t-stat wire, you have the two wires at the Solenoid, one wire goes to the terminal board at the furnace, it connects to the (c) or common terminal, the other wire connects to one leg of the humidistat, run another wire from the other leg of the humidistat, to either the HUM terminal on your furnace circuit board, make sure its not a 120v leg, should say in the owners manual, if if is or your not sure, connect that same leg to the (w) terminal at the furnace, this way it only comes on in heating mode, some models need a second 120v-24v transformer, but you would still wire it through the same way, only exception is that you have to hook up 120v to the transformer, and route your wiring like I told you above but through the transformer to complete the circuit, hope that helped you out Mike, please let us know, thanks again, mr.grzz

Humidistat installation question


I suppose you are looking at the do-it-yourself model. Depending on the wire that is run up to you Regular Thermostat from your furnace. You may have to run a seperate line for the Humidistat. A digital thermostat that does Humidity and Temperature is recommended. Or you could just place a Humidistat near the furnace room. A wiring diagram will come with the Humidifier discribing the different ways to wire it.
