Frequent knocking noise coming from General Aire 1042 LH humidifier

Hello, it depends where the sound is coming from,if it's in the supply water line it could be caused by water hamer or the inlet side of the solenoid valve might be clogged up with sediment. Water hammer is when the solenoid closes under high water pressure and a water hammer arresters should be installed. If the sound is coming directly from the solenoid valve and is more of a chattering sound then there is a loose low voltage wire or the solenoid is going bad. If you disconnect the power to the solenoid and the chattering stops then solenoid must be replaced as it is the cause of the noise.
