Can not access web interface ''controller'' - Aprilaire 8825

The device has a web interface to allow you to change the IP address, etc. It recently stopped allowing the computer access to the web configurator. We reset the IP to the default address of and I can ping it across the network as well as with a cross over cable going directly into the box. However; even though I can ping the device, the web ''configurator'' will not open. I have the correct version of Java installed.

There is a problem w/ newer versions JAVA communicating w/ the controller, and aprilaire has no immediate plans to update their software. I work for a h/c contractor and we have been installing quite a few of these 8825 systems - starting to get quite a few calls w/ the same symptoms. AA said to roll back the java and use mozilla as the browser. Am in the process of getting an optimum environment - so let me know if anyone has any luck

WE have a Lennox furnace that is 3 years old. We also have a Lennox AC that is 14 years old. Recently we had a board go bad on the furnace after a series of power outages and it was replaced. We also...

your furnace uses 115 power & there is a transformer in this unit that powers the low voltage controls. i would say that when they replaced the board they missed some issues with the low voltage control wires. which is likely to be what cause the board to go bad. theses low voltage wires are the only thing that can tell the outside unit to come on. the lights dimming tells me that you have a bad capacitor or need a hard start kit. the lights normally only dim if the compressor doesnt start.

Hello, you need a means of allowing 24 volts to the solenoid and this can be done by either a sail switch or current sensing relayrobhvac47.jpgCurrent sensing relay

I have water leaking out the bottom of my furnace when the aprilaire 700 is working. I have tried everything to resolve. It was working fine last month. I changed the water filter, cleaned the lines...

How old it your Aprilaire 700?
Eventually they all need maintenance, cleaning or replacing dirty or inoperative parts. The bottom Water tray has a drain tube that needs to be cleaned or replaced every fall as it will plug up with mineral deposits washed down from the unit. Adding a water filter to the inlet line (if you don't already have one) will reduce mineral scale build up and reduce the need for cleaning and maintenance. Some water filters may bypass uinfiltered water when very dirty. If thats OK, then the solenoid valves could be dirty, worn and now leaking all the time (not shutting off at end of operation cycle) These valves, 2 usually 1 Low volt operated 24 VDC supplied by thermostat and or humidistat when caling for heat, and 1 High volt 120 or 240 VAC suppiied by furnace fan delay switch, All Gas furnaces have a fan delay to allow the heat exchanger to warm up so the furnace does not blow cold air at the at the start of every cycle of heating. Both have to br powered on to allow water flow.
Click on the link below and read the Aprilaire Manual maintenance page. This Manual covers several models, so disregard parts not pertaining to your model number.
Remember to turn of electrical power to unit, furnace, air handler if a split unit, and don't attempt anything your not exceeding your experience level.

Changed out a Honeywell Thermostat with an Aprilaire Thermostat

The smell is usually dust on the wires for electric resistance heat.The thermostat shouldnt have anything to do with it.

Remote control for a/c

If you have the manufacturer name a model number and serial number . You can usually find a web sight on line for that manufacturer. Go to the sight, find a contact phone number, call them and explain your problem. Most times they will either give you a web address that will have the information your looking for or they will send you a copy of such information.
When ever in doubt go to the source.
The Manufacturer name and model should be on a tag somewhere on the front of the unit. It could be under the cover though.

A follow-up to my previous post. I talked with a technician from the Co that installed my unit, and the issue lies in the "Utility saver mode" for the 2 stage heat pumps, and having the high stage locked out. In the Advanced Setup menu (hold the "Advanced" button for 10 seconds to access this menu, look for the "Utility Saver" menu item. Select it and your system probably shows that "Utility Saver" is enabled, which only allows your heat pump to run on the low stage and not the high stage. If you change the the setting to be disabled, this will allow your system to run at the high stage and should solve your problem.

I have not changed the settings on my system yet to confirm this solution. That will have to wait until I get home this evening.
