I dont have any waterline in my furnace closet on the deck. How do I get a humidifier installed


I've never heard of a manually-filled furnace humidifier. We use a whole-house, stand-alone humidifier (manually-filled) and it works just fine. Easy to fill, easy to clean, easy to maintain. Even if there were such a thing as a manually-filled furnace humidifier, in the case you describe, I would much rather stay inside to fill my humidifier than get bundled up and step outside into the cold to do it. Hope you find a good solution. Good luck!

I have a carrier weathermaker 9200 - Water is leaking from under the furnace. I have checked the humidifier and in the furnace itself and cant find where the water is coming from. The furnace runs and...


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...

I need to replace the solenoid on a 560. Can someone point me to where I can find directions to do this?


Hello, turn the water off at the saddle valve and turn off your Furnace. Then disconnect the wires from the solenoid and disconnect the supply water tubing from the solenoid and the outlet tubing, now unscrew the solenoid and replace it with new one and reconnect everything and open saddle valve and turn Furnace back on.

Our aprilaire humidifier is only 4 years old and it does not seem to be working. We have static in the house and when I did test mode it never drained water like it was supposed to. Any ideas what I can do...


Hope this helps, check and see if humidistat is set to 35% humidity and that bypass damper on humidifier is in the open position or winter position.(humidistat is usually located on cold air return duct near furnace). Next, replace humidifier media pad, remember to replace media pad (filter) annually, you also may want to clean any lime deposit out of humidifier housing with a solution of warm water and white vinegar before installing your new media filter.Remember to turn power off at side of furnace when cleaning humidifier and replacing media. Before installing new media turn power back on to furnace, set humidistat to the on position, turn furnace thermostat above room temp., and inspect humidifier to see if water is running from top,(you may want to have a bucket under humidifier when checking for water), if you see water running, turn power back off to furnace, properly install new media filter, reconnect humidifier cover & set humidistat to 35%. If you do not see water present, check water supply valve to humidifier and make sure its turned on. If water supply valve is open, then check water supply tubing for blockage.And the last things to check is to make sure all registers through out your home are open and not blocked by any objects, also make sure furnace filter is cleaned, if none of this works refer to installation manual to see if humidifier was sized and installed properly, Good luck.

Aprilaire 700 leaks water from bottom of case


Install new water panels yearly. On the new panel make sure that the painted dot on the edge of the panel is on the top when you install it.
Always clean the distribution tray and the frame. Make sure the notch on the edge of the distribution tray faces away from the furnace. Make sure the humidifier was installed level. Keep the drain tube opening clear. Insure there is no blockages in the drain tube.
Good luck

Aprilaire 700 never shuts off


Thanks for your question,
Sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid valve in your Humidifier, this will need replaced, the solenoid is supposed to open and close when there is a call for humidity only when the furnace is running, then when the proper amount of humidity is sensed by the humidistat, then will it shut off, with the solenoid not working it will let water flow through like an open faucet, the solenoid is the componet that the 1/4in copper tubing connects to at the humidifier, has two wires running from it, you will need to shut the power off before changing this out, also shut the water off at the valve at the other end of the 1/4in copper line, or you might get soaked,please be careful when installing the new solenoid, making sure the water line connection is secure, or you will have leaks, hope this was helpful, please leave a rating, thanks again for your question,

Carrier SBP Humidifier is not working


I would suggest turning up the humidistat (usually located on the the return air duct to a higher setting and listening for a "click" noise on the supply valve. If you do hear a click but dont see / hear any water than the culprit is likely the valve itself.

Wiring problem


Sounds like you may have put 120v through a 24v solenoid and humidistat.
Is the HUM terminal on the furnace 120v or 24v?
If it is a 120v terminal you will need a 120x24v transformer and a new solenoid and maybe a new humidistat.
