If the unit was installed with a saddle valve, which is most often the case, you could try turning down the water pressure by tightening the valve a bit. Just follow the copper water line from the humidifier back to the main water line and look for a little valve that you can turn. Try to tighten this enough so that you still have water flowing, but at the proper volume so that it doesn't overflow and splash all over.

How much water gal/hr is reasonable to expect from the furnace humidifier overflow in "0 degree" farenheit outside to heat a 1500 square foot normal midwestern house to 72 degrees inside having a norm


There is no flow rating because it would depend on too many factors. What you do need to check is the float valve. The water valve is opening and closing like it should be but the reservoir is filling too much.

humidifiers have a drain and if there is water going in it will be coming out the drain. check drain to see if it is clear, check hoses going into top of humidifier for cracks, check filter in humidifier.

Water runs when furnace is off, but stops when furnace is on.


the 760 humidifier does not need a transformer wired externally. the 760 has its' own 24v transformer inside the fan compartment. this transformer will provide the power to enrgize the water solenoid as needed. it sounds like to me the additional trasnformer is hot all the time. when the furnace comes on, the unit gets power and the internal transformer is cancelling the power from the external transformer. this would explain why it quits running when the heat is on. since the external transformer is hot all time, when the heat shuts off, the solenoid is getting energized by the external transformer. to make this run correctly, you need to get rid of the external transformer. leave the humidifier high voltage wires hooked up so they are only hot when the furnace runs. if you have a humidistat that has a r and c terminal, you will need to wire these directly to the r and c on the furnace control board and move the switch inside the humidistat to "power". make sure it is not on "bypass". then wire your 2 brown wires from the humidifier to each of the "h" terminals on the humidistat. if you have a humidistat that only has 2 terminals, wire one brown wire to each of the terminals. this should allow it to run properly.

Water flow to my model 600 seems to be too quick. It splashes all over inside my furnace duct and over fills the drain causing water to run all over the floor. Could this be a bad selonoid?


It is not likely to be caused by the selonoid valve. The selonoid is designed to be either open or closed, so if the unit is calling for humidity, it should be 100% open allowing as much water as possible to flow through. In cases of a bad selonoid, it will usually stick open or stick closed, but I have never heard of one allowing too much water through. Check to make sure your drain is clear and that the incoming line to the humidifier is positioned properly on the inside of the unit. If this doesn't solve the problem, it could be that the water line to the humidifier is too large, allowing more flow than the unit is designed for.

Loud clicking, banging noise


We recently had the same problem. After cleaning both the furnace filter and the humidifier water panel, the clicking noise (electric air filter) and the loud bang went away.
