    The owner's manual indicates that some models will display the - AC message when operating on the backup batteries. I would check to see that there is 24-volt power to the thermostat.

Chances are it's from the condesate tubes or collector box. If not, you may have a cracked A/C drain pan- lots of installers over tighten the male adapter into them and cause cracks. next check to see if they installed all the condensate plugs at install, some installers don't- read the manual in the "how to set up the condesate" section and trace EVERY tube to make sure they are routed correctly and not cracked/ cut/ nicked. Most furnaces are multi-position now and some installers don't move every tube nessessary... Hope this helps, if not, post a close-up pic, and I'll pinpoint the bad spot for you...

It would appear to me that you have lost the 24 volt power supply to the thermostat. In referencing the manuals for this thermostat, available @ www.honeywell.com, I've found that when the thermostat is not connected to the wall plate (plate mounted on the wall, that the thermostat either snaps or screws into), it will display the -AC. This being said, either the thermostat is loose on the wall currently, or your 24 volt transformer has died. Hope this helps.

Solenoid valve will not shut when the furnace is off


Most likely you have crud buildup in the solenoid valve. But first make sure that you test accross the solenoid connections for voltage when the furnace is OFF. Put your meter to AC volts and see if you see 24 Volts when furnace is ON and 0 Volts when furnace is OFF. If you get those readings then you need to replace your solenoid valve.
Available from mfg for about $55-60
or on ebay for about $40 shipped.
search for Aprilaire 4040 Solenoid

If the above tests fail, you will need to ensure that the wiring is correct and not shorted, but is probably your valve. Install a fridge water filter in the water line to help prevent this in the future.

Aprilaire 550 makes extremely loud grinding noise when turned on


yes it should be bypass but solenoid could be trying to open but the voltage to it may be to low if you have 24v ac power at the 2 small wires. but to change shut down power to furnace and water to humidifier.you loosen the 2 compression nuts unwire they cant be reversed so dont worry then 2 mounting screws then reverse to install

Furnace tries to come on then .... hold -AC.


When the thermostat says AC it means there is no power to the thermostat.
