Honeywell he240 no longer working. It is less than 2 months old. I noticed water had stopped flowing out of drain tube. The filter tray is not filling up with water. Humidistat clicks when turned up and...

Maybe the hose is blocked. Take the hose off the supply side, and blow into just enough to add pressure to it and see if that works.

Water is continually feeding humidifier even when furnace is not running

I would recommend that you shut off water supply and remove solenoid valve.Disassemble valve and clean it making sure that there is nothing stopping the valve from fully closing. If you can not find any problem after cleaning then reassemble and leave the outlet connection loose.Turn on furnace and see if the valve is even trying to close. If not then you need to replace the solenoid valve. Hope this helps. Thank you.

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.

Why won't the water stop running?

When my humidifier refuses to turn off, it is always because the plunger in the electronic valve is stuck.
When the rheostat senses low humidity, it sends current to a coil, this creates a magnetic field that pulls a plunger up into a tube away from a rubber gasket (hole in center to match plunger) and water flows thru the hole. When humidity is high, the rheostat stops the current, and a spring/gravity push the plunger back against the gasket.
The plunger or the tube can get deposits, or just rust ever so slightly, and then the plunger gets stuck in the up = on position.
Buy a new solenoid valve $$$, or take your solenoid apart and clean the plunger and the tube with steel wool.

Honeywell HE260 leaks somewhere

Neither, even if the solenoid or humidistat stick, it should always drain properly. Is the unit mounted on the cold air return duct or the supply plenum? If it's mounted on the supply plenum, the water panel might be getting blown forward and spilling the water. High efficient furnaces also can leak water on the floor if its drain is restricted. If hum. is mounted on return duct make sure drain is clear by blowing through it. On Honeywell hum's I've seen the rubber hose from the solenoid valve to the distributor tray leak too, check the rubber 1/4" hose.

Water runs out back humidifier into plenum & onto floor

Hi John Your whole question did not show up (maybe you can re-post) . I can answer what part i understand though. If the humidifier was wired in right it will not send power to the humidifier until the furnace is on, and calling for heat. This stops the unit from working in the cooling mode in summer.Make sure your furnace filter is clean as well

Hope that helps

Loud clicking, banging noise

We recently had the same problem. After cleaning both the furnace filter and the humidifier water panel, the clicking noise (electric air filter) and the loud bang went away.
