Question about Aprilaire Humidifiers
This is our second winter in a home with an Aprilaire 560 whole house humidifier. I noticed several days ago the unit has started to drain water constantly, even when the humidistat is turned to OFF. I do not believe it has done this until now. What would cause the unit to suddenly begin to continuously drain water even when turned off?
Check to see if you have 24 volts between to 2 yellow wires coming out of the water solenoid. if you have 24v, then it is still getting energized to run. if it does not have 24v and the water is still running, the solenoid is stuck open. most likely from water deposits. sometimes you can take the solenoid apart and clean it, but probably better off just getting a new solenoid.
