  • Anonymous Dec 23, 2008

    I bought a NEW Autoflo 200P last year, and have had continual problems
    with overflow (I have a tube connected to the overflow hole, run into a
    bucket). The float assembly is not sealing properly, and when I took
    out the "valve", I found that it had a nick in the metal. I filed down
    the orifice, put it back, and the unit worked beautifully (no overflow)
    for two weeks, followed by the same problem. I've done this twice (when
    I also adjusted the float valve "water height"), and am ready to buy a
    new float assembly, because I haven't figured out what else could be
    wrong. My original 200P lasted for YEARS, with no overflow leaks.

Like to help, but I have a similar? problem. My brand new motor turns, but gets hung up and clicks. That's why I bought a new one in the first place. Now it's hot. Tried to jiggle, make sure there is enough room for the wheel to rotate. Seems to be sufficient space. Why won't the wheel turn?
It's almost like the water weighs too much and holds it the wheel in place and the gears aren't strong enough to turn it.

My furnace is leaking when the air is on and the motor in the autoflo 800 humidifier is bad. Could this be the problem?


Hello, the motor itself wont cause the unit to leak water, the float valve on the unit is what adjusts how much water is coming into the humidifier. If the float valve is not adjusted properly or broken it will cause to much water to enter the humidifierand therefrore overflow. Replace the motor and chexk the float valve to enure it is adjusted properly and if it is stuck or broken replace.

The AutoFlo 2000P unit ( 12 years old ) on my furnace is leakng water from the drain spout, which it had never done before. It also is emitting sounds like a low clicking or grinding sound. Where is the...


Tim, they're are generally not hard wired. At least, by today's standards. They're usually plugged into a receptacle. If that's not the case with yours. Open the lid and lift the float valve and tie it some way that can't lower. That will stop water from entering the humidifier tank and it should stop working. Also, look for the water line shutoff valve and turn it OFF. That way, you can be double sure it will stop running.

Hope this helped you to turn it off.

I have a Auoflo 250 in my home. It hasn't been clean in about two yrs. Will this cause it to leak.


Possibly. Was it stored in an area that got below freezing? If so, yes. There may have been small amounts of water that were left in it and it froze (expanded) and cracked. Thus, causing a leak.

But, I'd be more concerned about the bacteria that has been growing in the humidifier and would spread through the air if you used it.

Hope this helps.

Is set to 60 end is no water coming


First, is the saddle 'T' valve open on the water supply line? If it's not turn it ON no water can fill the tank. If after that, it doesn't work, there may be a problem with one of the solenoids.

I have included a link to your Owners Manual, which may be of assistance, since it has a Trouble Shooting Guide.

I just installed a new AutoFlo 200P. I have 24V to the 200P motor, but the motor won't spin. I can't even get it to move if I put pliers on the output shaft (I'm not forcing it, though). Any thoughts?

There is no water going into humidifier. I have water going up to the solenoid assembly but nothing going into the humidifier.


Turn the humidistat all the way up and listen for a click at the solenoid valve. If it clicks, then the solenoid valve is probably plugged, scaled up or stuck. They can be disassembled and cleaned depending on the type, but it would be easier to replace it.

If no click, check for a power problem in the circuit.

Just moved into home with a250 mumidifier. water not getting to unit. It's turned on.


Is the water supply on? If you have a voltmeter, check for voltage across the solenoid valve leads when the furnace is heating. If you have voltage, but don't hear a click when the furnace turns on, suspect faulty solenoid.
