It is a bypass humidifer the pad in it should last a couple of years, the water runs over the pad and air pulls moisture off the pad. Putting it into the home. Make sure the damper is open for proper air flow.

Continous water flow on a 1042lh humidifer


theholts220 - Sounds like they needed to install a bit larger transformer . You can also buy a A 50 Sensing relay that attaches to the wires for your motor and when you turn on the furnace it will allow the power to go to the humidistat. Very strange though they do not use a lot of power. Check and make sure the wires are not pinched or touching metal somewhere.


TLuzzo - The humidistat seems to be working when you turn it down. The wires for the solenoid should be hooked up to your furnace circuit board. The instruction manual will tell you where. If you dont have a spot on your circut board the A 50 sensing reley is they way to go. They are inexpensive

Aprilaire 600: water only runs in "Emergency" Heat mode


When your unit is on normal the outside unit works and the inside only the fan runs. your heat pump does not remove any humidity when it operates so the installation cotractor did not wire it to operate then. you can change the wiring on the humidifier to operate all the time by wiring it to the fan (g) terminal then it should work just turn it all the way to the lowest humidity when you are in cooling mode.

Continuous water draining from my General 1042 Humidifier.....


This type of humidifer is known as a flow through humidifer, when running water flows through it instead of sitting in a pan. The water draining is normal. This type of humidifer will use more water than a pan type but is much healthier due to the fact that you do not get all the build up of the pan type if you ever cleaned one. also change the water panel every year. to change the water panel there will be 2 screws on the bottom pan. Remove them and the panel will come out, buy a replacement at home depot or such store if available, otherwise from a htg company. Replacement is a little tricky to get it to line up so be patient. If you cant remove the bottom panel due to lack of room, it will come out through the top. You will have to loosen and swing the water feed tube out of the way. That is the only maintainace to this humdifier. Also with this humidifier all you have to do is turn the humidistat to off in the summer, you do not have to turn off the water as with float types.

Water leak


Sounds like the air flow is too great and it is blowing the water in the bottom of the tray around before it gets a chance to drain. Try placing your summer, winter damper at half closed to slow the airflow down a little.
