Question about Aprilaire 700 Humidifier

1 Answer

My humidifier needs to be perfectly aligned for the unit to close

I can't seem to do that and the alignment is required for the unit to get power. Has anybody had this same problem? What did you do?

Kenmore Humidifier 14114 - the fan suddenly stopped running. Changed fliter and water, unplugged the unit, changed dial to highest humidity level - the unit will not run.


Hi

Please turn off the power to the unit and unplug it. Now check the fuse inside the unit, make sure its fine and not burnt If fuse seems OK then inspect the connections to the fan and make sure the wires are not cut. Also, inspect the control for any burnt components, use a multimeter to confirm. Hope this helps... Please post back with complete model# if you need more information.

Hi,
No, you do not need another one. Wire everything just as you see it in the wiring schematics and you will only need the transformer supplied with the unit.

Check the drain to make sure its clear and that the tray is properly aligned with the drain of the housing. Also check how much water is being fed to the unit sometimes you have too much and it is blown off the pad. Just a personal opinion I have never installed a humidifier on the front of a furnace for this reason. I hope this helps

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.

Water does not get to Humidifier. Goes from source to motor.


That is not a 'motor' on the side of the humidifier housing, it is a solenoid valve. The water feeds in to one side and exits the other side to a tube that feeds in to the top of the humidifier unit. The valve opens and allows water to flow when electrical power is applied to the valve

The valve electircal requirement may be either 120 vac or 24 vac. Power typically is switched on and off by a Humidistat control. The power feed to the Humidistat may come from a small transformer if the valve is a 24 vac unit, or directly from a furnace connection if the valve is a 120 vac unit. There are many variations, though.

A qualified licensed eletrician should check the power feed to the valve. If there is no power feed to the valve then he can trace back to the point of failure and correct the issue ... but he must also check for additional issues with the valve itself, as noted below.

Other possibles reasons for solenoid valve failure:

If power feed to the valve tests ok, then the coil inside the solenoid may be 'open' (bad, no continuity). The electrician can test the coil by checking resistance or continuity of the coil.

A non-electrical problem is that the valve path may be blocked by hardwater mineral build-up or other foreign material that flowed through the water line.

The solenoid valve must be replaced if either of the above is true with your valve.

Remember, use only a quailified licensed electrician!

SOLENOID DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORKING.


If your humidifier is wired to run only wen your fan is on. if your water supply is could you will not get any humidity unless the heat in on. you need to connect the humidifier to hot water then you can keep the fan on the on positions by your thermostat and set your hemostat to 35% hum.

Water not running through humidifier


Sounds as if you feel the problem is the saddle valve. Check to see if water is available at the humidifier. Close the saddle valve, disconnect the water line at the humidifier side, then slowly turn the saddle valve back on. If you never see water, then correct the saddle valve. You can get details here: http://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/infxtra/infsad.html#1
If you are getting water, but dont think that the unit is operating try sending 24VAC directly to the hunidifier and see if it operates, bypass the humidistat etc.

HE440A Steam Power Humidifier


The most common cause of overflow is when hard water deposits build up and prevent the float from closing. You'll have to open up the unit, make sure there's no water in it, and clean out any mineral deposits.

The problem with these steam producing units is that there is no built in way to remove those deposits automatically. The water comes in, evaporates, and leaves anything else that was suspended in it behind.

Doesn't run


When a humidifier doesn't run, it generally means it isn't receiving electrical power or the controls have automatically shut it off. 1) Be sure it's plugged in to an outlet that works and that it's turned on. Check the electrical receptacle for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. 2) If the receptacle seems to be dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves the humidifier's circuit. 3) Check the setting on the humidistat. If it's set lower than the room's relative humidity, the humidifier won't go on; in fact, it may take several hours for the humdistat to respond to the room's changing humidity. 4) Be sure the humidifier's reservoir is full of water. 5) Unplug the humidifier unit. 6) Check the power cord. If necessary, repair the cord. 7) Remove the humidifier's cover panel. 8) Remove the humidistat and check it (as shown below). Replace it if necessary. 9) If it still doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson, take the unit into an appliance repair shop, or replace the unit. To check the humidistat, you?ll need a volt-ohm meter. A humidifier?s fan vaporizes the water in the reservoir and blows the water vapor into the house or room. If you need to check the fan, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Tighten the fan hub with pliers if it is loose; this should take care of rattles. If the fan doesn?t spin easily when you try to move the blades by hand or if it is still noisy, lubricate the motor bearings with oil. To establish whether power is reaching the humidistat when you know there are no problems with the plug or switches, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Test it with a volt-ohm meter set to the RX1 scale (or to K[omega symbol] or [omega symbol] resistance on a digital meter). Clip the meter to the humidistat terminals. The meter should jump if you turn the humidistat from high to low. If it doesn?t, you?ll need to replace the humidistat or return it to the manufacturer.
