Question about Carrier SBP Humidifier

1 Answer

My carrier humidifier has a hose which drains into the laundry sink and a lot of water is coming out. Should this happen in winter? I thought water should only come out in the summer?

I have water on my windows and the demudifier in the basement goes on to remove moisture?

The humidifier should run in winter, however if the windows are fogged up it means the humidistat is set too high. Try lowerimg the setting on tue humidistat.

Hello

Check all supply registers of the unit, which are wide and flat and located on your walls. Make sure that they are open and unclogged. Inspect the cleanliness of the unit and of the distribution pad.

Observe the fan's function. Spray lubricant on on the motor shaft of the fan unit to ensure it rotates properly.

Take off the small pipe between the solenoid valve and the humidifier and check if the opening is blocked. If not, you may need to replace the solenoid valve.

Check whether the thermostat has been set to a heat position and that the temperature is set above the room temperature. Check that the furnace is getting power supply and the circuit panel to see if all the circuit breakers are in an "ON" position. Check all the return air grills on the wall, make sure they are not blocked.

Check whether the thermostat is set to "COOL." Check also the circuit breakers and that they are in an "ON" position. Make sure that the blower motor in the furnace is running, as it should be when the thermostat has been set in a cool position.

SOURCE: 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.

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...

Hello, no the humidifier should be running only when the blower motor is running. Sounds like the solenoid valve is faulty if water keeps drainig from humidifier.

How to change from summer to winter


Can you give a little more info? Usually depending on where you live, people use de-humidifiers in the summer and humidifiers in the winter. If you need a humidifier year around, there should be nothing you need to do uther than filter cleaning and checking the water valve and cleaning the pan of mineral deposits. Depending on your water, you might need to pour a cup of limeaway in your pan and let it run for a couple hours. Then drain it, flush it, and let it keep running.

Water leak


Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.

Water flow through humidifier


I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.

Humidifier leaks


My Air-O-Swiss U7142 has a leak from the very bottom. I found that as long as the water flows on to the "pan" that evaporizes the water, the water will come out from the bottom. Does anybody know how to fix this?
