If you chose to install this with an auxilary transformer. Turn the main power off to the furnace. Mount the transformer on the handi box to the furnace or inside the furnace cabinet. Wire the primary wires from the transformer to the main power coming into the furnace. Connect black to black and white to white. Wire the secondary side of the transformer in "series" with a #50 relay, the humidistat, the solenoid valve and back to the transformer. Determine which wire powers the blower motor for the heating speed. Clamp the #50 relay to the wire.
Good luck

Hello, in order to turn your humidifier on with the furnace the 120 volts coming from your humidifer you must hook it up to a step down transformer, then the transformer will provide 24 volts to you humidistat and solenoid valve. So you need a wire from the HUM on your control board to transformer primary side and a wire from neutral on the board to primary side of transformer. Then you need low voltage wire from secondary side of transformer to humidistat from humidistat to humidifier.

If you have very old furnace, does it have a blower with a belt. If it does it should only have 2 wires going to blower. If it has 2 you should be able to use the transformer you have plugged into wall and splice into 2 wires going to blower. If you have more than 2 wires to blower, you will need to find out which one is used for heat plus use the white one. If you have a voltage sensor you should be able to find it easily.

I replaced a clogged drain hose attached to my Aprilaire 600 humidifier. I then discovered no water was being supplied to the humidifier. The problem appeared to be a dangling solenoid wire that I had...


Hi,
No, you need to attach one of the solenoid wires to the red wire and one to the white wire.
So, undo the wire nut with the three wire and hook one of the red or white wirtes to the wire nut with only one wire. Then you sould have a black wire and one of the other red or white wires under each wire nut.
Problem amy be that you now have burned out the transformer that runs your Humidifier. By hooking the red and white wires together you may have shorted that out and killed it.
If you humidifier does not work after hooking it back uo right then you will need to change the transformer.

When I turn on the humidifier it shuts off the furnace


some one has the humidifier hooked up to the R and W on the furnace.
1. it should be hooked up to its own transformer or to a proper low voltage terminal on the circuit board(beware there are high voltage HUM terminals) markd HUM and the other wire to C or the common.
2. You could hook the wire to W or white and C Common but I would rather see a seperate transformer since there is a possiblity this could cause solenoid chattering

HE220A direct wiring to protech 62-24084 control board


it is best to use a seperate transformer for the hummidifier, but in some cases you can use the low voltage t-stat wire that runs your furnace, you will need to have one wire run to common, and the other to the heating side of your low voltage, normally its the red wire hooked to the w circuit of your terminal board, if you do decide to go with an extra transformer, make sure you you have it wired to bring on the humidifier only when the unit calls for heat, hope that helps

How does transformer hook up


if you just replace the unit and it is working, no your do not need the tranformer. The unit is getting power from the furnace. For reference though. The black and white wires are your 120 volts. Black hot, white common. the 2 screws are your 24 volts

Humidifier control .


if humidifier was wired into thermostat circuit for power instead of seperate transformer , this can happen. you need to see if you voltage going to the solenoid valve. if you do , and it isn't opening, the valve is bad . this is assuming that it is using a # 50 relay to come on only when the fan runs . . make sure the water valve is open

Installation problem


I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH V/A OUT-PUT ON TRANSFORMER. I DONT KNOW IF YOURS CAME WITH ITS OWN TRANSFORMER. IF IT DIDNT YOU SHOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF A 40 V/A RATING STAMPED OR PRINTED ON THE EXISTING TRANSFORMER. IF THE TRANSFORMER IS EXTREAMLY HOT ... YOU MAY NEED A 75 V/A TRANSFORMER WITH THE SAME VOLTAGES. INCREASING THE V/A CANNOT DAMMAGE ANYTHING IT JUST GIVES YOU MORE POWER WHEN EXCESIVE CONTROLS AND WIRING ARE ADDED TO A HVAC LOW-VOLAGE (24v) CIRCUIT. IF YOU LIKE YOU CAN CALL ME AT 727-363-7071. I AM A RETIRED HVAC&R CONTRACTOR WITH 45 YEARS EXPERIENCE. I HATE THE NEW SENSORS THEY HAVE TO ACTIVATE THESE NEW HUMIDIFIERS. I USE TO WIRE THE HUMIDIFIER TRANSFORMER (SUPPLIED WITH HUMIDIFIER) TO THE LINE (110V) SIDE TO THE LOW SPEED ON YOUR BLOWER MOTOR. THAT WAY THE ONLY THING THAT INTERUPTS THE CICUIT IS THE HUMIDISTAT. YOU NEVER WANT THE HUMIDIFIER TO RUN IF YOUR SYSTEM IS NOT "CALLING FOR HEAT". NEVER TRY TO ENERGIZE THE WATER SOLENOID THROUGH YOUR HEAT WIRE(USUALLY SMALL THE WHITE WIRE) FROM THE THERMOSTAT. THIS WILL RESULT IN BURNING YOUR HEAT ANTICIPATOR OUT ON THE T-STAT.
