Question about Honeywell HE360A1027 Whole House Humidifier Humidifier

1 Answer

Water keeps running to Honewell 360A Whole House Humidifier

We have the HE360A Whole House Humidifier and the H8908B Humidistat. It was installed by the previous owners of our house and has been working fine for the 4+ years we have lived in the house. We just returned from vacation and the water keeps running from the supply line to the Humidifier. I shut off the unit and turned off the valve on the supply line and then turned it back on. The next time the furnace kicked on and the humidifier started running, the water kept going even after the furnace shut off. Any help would be greatly appreciated

You may need to replace the valve that is wired to the furnace that controls the water flow

Honeywell humidifier short cycles


It's not uncommon for duct work in an older home to Bang as the furnace cycles due to age. The humidifier banging while turning on and of is mostlikely the solenoid valve; if the solenoid is bad it is actually to your benefit to replace the entire humidifier as the solenoids are very expensive, 50%+ of a new humidifier. Plus you get the 5 year parts warranty on the new unit instead of just one year on the solenoid. If you don't want to replace the entire unit you can replace the Humidistat, and that should fix the on/off cycling, however a new humidistat is included with a new unit, which again is more cost effective. They are easy enough to replace as a do it yourselfer, especially when replacing an existing unit. I hope this helps you.

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.

Water not flowing into HE360A


If you used the plastic tubing to the humidifier(I recomend copper) there should have been a little brass tube with a flare on it. This goes in the plastic tubing to grip the the sleeve better. See if this helps

push sail switch forward by hand to see if that is the problem.
Remove two wires at humidifier and connect them if it starts than it is in wiring, humidistat, or transformer.

Wiring issue with the Honeywell HE360A Humidifier


Maybe I can help. this is 24v so it doestn't matter which wire goes where so here goes. 2 wires from humidistat go to furnace, split one of the wires(not both) so they reach the yellow wires on the humidifier. with marettsconnect one of the split wires to one of the yellow wires. do the same to the other split wire and yellow wire. what you should get is one wire from humidistat to furnace then one wire from humidifier to humidistat and one from humidifier to furnace. hope this helps

This may not be a solution, but a couple things you might want to look at. First, the humidifier may not be big enough for your house - just because a contractor installed it doesn't mean he sized it right. Second, humidity may only be 30% locally by the humidistat, but higher in other parts of the house - it depends where the humidistat is located. Finally, look at your hot water line - I'm surprised he ran it off hot water and not cold - seems like a waste of energy to me, but the feed line may be clogged by sediment from the water heater
