Sounds like you do not have an orifice in the water line to regulate the water pressure.

I have a model #560..turning the humidistat forward until it "clicks" would cause the water to begin flowing..now, after the "click" is heard, the water does not flow into the reservoir. Do you think it's...


turn the saddle valve in and back out. sometimes the small pin hole for the water gets plugged with something over the summer when the units aren't running and just turning the valve in and back out clears it out and allows the water to flow. check to see that you have water flow at the solenoid and if you do then it is probably the solenoid that is bad.

Aprilaire model 560 pan keeps filling up with water - what adjustments do I need to do?


Here's a link to the manual for your Aprilaire model 560 humidifier you can download and print for free.

According to Aprilaire, it is normal for there to be excess water going into the drain pan. However, the drain pan should have a drain line connected to it so the contaminents from the humidifier can be flushed down a drain and away from the unit. (see page 2 Principle of Operation).

They further state that the water valve should only be either fully on or fully shut off and do not attempt to regulate water flow with the inlet supply valve.

http://www.aprilaire.com/themes/aa/en/manuals/Humidifiers_Owners_Manual.pdf

I would give the unit a good cleaning of the pan, locate the drain connection and attach a drain line to your unit as is required for proper operation and function/

Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!

Aprilaire 560 constantly drains water


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.

Aprilaire 600 doesn't seem to be running at all


check list
1.check the clamp on the pipe where water line connects
is the hole clogged (water turned off)wont take long
2.Is water flowing all the way to resevoir after turnnig water on
loosen line at reservoir
3.jiggle float water should enter the reservoir inlet to float valevel
somestime cake up,clean float off
4.Remove pump cap clean impeller and standpipe
5.clean reservoir,and close everything up

Usually the hole in the pipe is clogged up in step 1 or the float is sticking if there is no evidence of water in the reservoir
