Question about Hunter Humidifiers
I purchased a new home with this humidifier installed. The water is hooked up and turned on, but the only thing working is a click when I turn the thermostat. I don't even know where to begin to troubleshoot this. The wires going into the furnace (blower) don't look like they are connected. All others seem fine. I would like to know if I can fix it before giving up and purchasing a new one
A pair of wires should go to some power source...and pass through the humidisat (not thermostat). The clicking sound you will get whether there is power there or not. Try and trace those wires to a power source off the furnace.off a little metal unit called a transformer. new home. it should work unless they left the wires off for the owners to hook up...or for some electrician to do the final hook up.
It its a new home, don't be afraid to call the builders. They are expecting you.

SOURCE: 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.

trace thre copper tube backwards to where it connects to main water line if there is a valve there open and close it if your not sure whats open or closed try it both ways there is also a little restriction device either on inlet or outlet of solenoid that may be clogged

This sounds like, the 550 transformer is not connected to the blower motor power connection (in parallel)

sounds like you may have it wired to a continuous power source vs one that shuts off with the furnace. The most common wiring is red to C & white to W
