I had the same problem, exact same humidifier!
The solenoid valve that allows the water to flow is calcified, and is stuck "on". Sometimes, you can clean it; remove it and use the stuff that removes "lime deposits"; don't "soak" the whole valve, just get the cleaner into both sides where the water enters and exits. Hope this helps, it worked just fine for me..

    I would highly doubt that the wiring is the issue. Removal of the outer cover of the unit will show you the removable water panel; if it is real crusty with solids, this proves my theory.

If it is running constantly even when turned the low voltage circuit has been wired incorrectly.

My aprilaire 600 continues to have water running down the drain at all times, whether the furnace is running or not.


Hello, usually when a humidifier continues to run with the furnace off it means that the solenoid valve is stuck open and must be replaced.

The water basin that receives and pumps out the excess water on my Aprilaire 600 humidifier runs incessantly, even when very little waters in in teh basin? Is there an easy fix? thank you


If you are referring to a condensate pump then the float might be stuck and causing the pump to run continuously. The best thing to do is turn off power to the pump and clean it out and make sure the float is free and not stuck.

Should water be continualing running through the drain tube?


Water will flow over the filter pad as long as the unit is calling for humidity. once the unit is satisfied the solenoid valve should stop the water flow. if the water continues to flow with out call then solenoid valve has failed open. hope this helps.suppling an owners manual in case you need one.

Not working


HI, Troubleshooting an Aprilaire Humidifier

Aprilaire, a manufacturer of indoor air quality products including thermostats, air cleaners and dehumidifiers, also offers a line of whole house humidifiers. Installed in your existing heating and cooling system, humidity is produced by a supplied water source that flows over a water panel before being distributed throughout your air through the heating and cooling system. Issues you may need to troubleshoot with your Aprilaire humidifier include error messages and the unit producing too little or too much humidity.

Things You'll Need:

Replacement water panel


Turn down the control dial by one setting if condensation appears on your windows or walls.


Turn up the control dial by one setting if there is a lack of humidity, often indicated by dry skin or peeling wallpaper or paint.


Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" if the humidifier does not run. Verify the heating and air conditioning unit blower is operating. If the heating and air conditioning unit is not operating or you are unable to resolve the issue contact a heating contractor.


Contact a heating contractor if you turn the control dial to "Off" and the humidifier continues to run.


Contact your Aprilaire dealer (see Resources) if you notice an error code on the display and the "Call Dealer for Service" light flashes.


Turn the control dial to "Off" and turn off the water supply if the yellow "Change Water Panel" light flashes. Lift the front panel off of the humidifier. Slide out the water panel. Insert a new water panel. Replace the front cover. Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" until the "Humidifier On" light flashes. If you feel uncomfortable changing the water panel, contact a heating contractor.


Tips & Warnings

Purchase replacement water panels through your Aprilaire dealer or a heating contractor.

Aprilaire 760 Humidifier water continues to run


You need to determine whether the problem is in the solenoid or in the furnace electronics. You could put a voltmeter on the solenoid connection to see if the furnace is still holding the solenoid open after the blower stops. This will tell you whether it is the solenoid or not.
