SOURCE: no water flow to the humififier

I've been working on the Aprilaire 110 unit today, after encountering the same problem. Here's how I fixed it: First, with the humidistat turned to 0%, I turned off the water supply saddle valve all the way (all the way to the right)--and then turned it back on all the way (all the way left). Still no water flow. Second, I slightly loosened the inline valve nut on the discharge side of the solenoid on the side of the 110 unit. Water began flowing, so I tightened it back up; and now the water flows freely. Conclusion: You may have some mineral deposit buildup in your lines, as I apparently did.

If i hook my Aprilaire 400 Manual (not auto/digital) humidifier up straight to a 24v wall outlet instead of to the furnace, will it still work correctly? Or does it need to be powered by the furnace to...


Your humidifier is a bypass type. The only voltage needed is 24vac to open the water valve. Air only flows through the humidifier when the furnace blower is running, and the wet pad will add very little humidity if the furnace is not running and heating the air before flowing through the wet pad in the humidifier.
It is best the water valve is only energized when the furnace is running. Some furnaces have a connector on their control boards labeled HUM for this purpose. Test it's voltage when the furnace is running because some will output 110vac instead of 24vac you need.

I have a whole house Honeywell E365 humidifier which is constantly flowing water to the pad, even when the heat is not on. What could be the cause ?


Hello, the most common reason this happens is because the solenoid valve is bad and remains open allowing water to flow continously regardless if the furnace is on or off. I assume you have either a sail switch or current sensing relay energizing the humidifier when the heat is on, if not thats another reason it would run continously.

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...


Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

I have a Honeywell humidfier HE 220A with a KIP U147112 valve. Will turning the large screw head on the valve decrease the volume of water flow through the humidifier. Too much water is being wasted.

Humidifier will not turn on (no fan, no water flow)

A breakdown diagram of parts etc above.

Shows you the HE360A.
To me it sounds like it is wired incorrectly, the solenoid should NOT get too hot at all. The PDF above shows wiring data.

My honeywell humidifier attachment on my furnace will not start after the summer with water running to it.I have the humidity cranked up, but the filter is still bone dry.


Humidifiers usually are wired up to ONLY come on when the Heat is on and the fan running....anyother time you check it it will not be powered or wet...turn your heat on , wait till the fan comes on...then turn up your humidistat you should hear a click if its a flow through type and water should start flowing from the top...or if its tyhe drum style with the sponge...you should see it then turning...if it doesnt turn the pad/spindle may not be installed properly...if only fits one way

Too much water running through to humidifier


With the Honeywell he220, you will use alot of water, trying to turn down the water will only reduce your amount of humidity in the home, you may be able to adjust it a little but you need to take the cover off and reduce the water flow a little at a time watching the water as it flows across the pad, you just have to make sure the humidifier pad is getting plenty of water across it, to little and you lose your humidification, hope that was helpful to ya, thanks for your question,

No water running through the pad


I has same problem and was able to fix ti by taking off the selonoid (cylinder) and then removing both fittings (where the water line enters and then exits the selonoid. The fitting where the water enters has a small pinhole that I found clogged and just cleaned it with a toothpick. After cleaning and reattaching everything, it works fine.

If that doesn't work, you might need a new selonoid which are around $70-$80.

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.
