Aprilaire 700. It works on fan on mode but not otherwise. It's never on and the humidity reading is always way below the setting. It should turn on automatically to bring the humidity up, right?


It appears your Aprilaire model 700 is wired to only operate when your HVAC fan is operated by your thermostat. Your HVAC installer can wire the humidifier control to operate the humidifier during a heat call, fan call or to turn on the fan when there is a need for humidification. Please contact your HVAC installer to have them change the wiring.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service

Looks like my humidistat calls for coil fan and for furnace heat


It sounds like the humidifier may be improperly wired.
It's hard to solve without checking the wiring, but it seems like the humidistat is wired so that as the dial is advanced, it incorrectly turns on the fan, or furnace, or both.  The contacts of the humidistat should be wired so that they turn on the solenoid only.  Also, the power to the humidistat, to turn on the solenoid, should come on only when the fan is on.
Hope this helps!

Humidifier won't turn on with furnace fan set to Auto.


There is a devise called a current sensing relay (a little black box that hangs on a blower motor wire that senses current from that wire) If you have such a devise it should hang from the white (common) wire. Loop the wire through twice.

SOLENOID DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WORKING.


If your humidifier is wired to run only wen your fan is on. if your water supply is could you will not get any humidity unless the heat in on. you need to connect the humidifier to hot water then you can keep the fan on the on positions by your thermostat and set your hemostat to 35% hum.

Doesn't run


When a humidifier doesn't run, it generally means it isn't receiving electrical power or the controls have automatically shut it off. 1) Be sure it's plugged in to an outlet that works and that it's turned on. Check the electrical receptacle for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. 2) If the receptacle seems to be dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves the humidifier's circuit. 3) Check the setting on the humidistat. If it's set lower than the room's relative humidity, the humidifier won't go on; in fact, it may take several hours for the humdistat to respond to the room's changing humidity. 4) Be sure the humidifier's reservoir is full of water. 5) Unplug the humidifier unit. 6) Check the power cord. If necessary, repair the cord. 7) Remove the humidifier's cover panel. 8) Remove the humidistat and check it (as shown below). Replace it if necessary. 9) If it still doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson, take the unit into an appliance repair shop, or replace the unit. To check the humidistat, you?ll need a volt-ohm meter. A humidifier?s fan vaporizes the water in the reservoir and blows the water vapor into the house or room. If you need to check the fan, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Tighten the fan hub with pliers if it is loose; this should take care of rattles. If the fan doesn?t spin easily when you try to move the blades by hand or if it is still noisy, lubricate the motor bearings with oil. To establish whether power is reaching the humidistat when you know there are no problems with the plug or switches, unplug the humidifier, remove the control panel, and lift the lid. Test it with a volt-ohm meter set to the RX1 scale (or to K[omega symbol] or [omega symbol] resistance on a digital meter). Clip the meter to the humidistat terminals. The meter should jump if you turn the humidistat from high to low. If it doesn?t, you?ll need to replace the humidistat or return it to the manufacturer.

Not working.


A console humidifier that fails to humidify a room could have a bad humidistat, fan switch or float switch--problems that take specialized equipment to diagnose. But before you call in a pro, it's worth your time to test the fan motor and float assembly, since repairing them is something you can handle on your own. Testing and fixing the fan Steps: 1. Test the fan motor. While the machine is plugged in and full of water, turn both the humidistat knob and fan-control knob to high. If the fan hums but does not turn, or turns slowly, the motor needs to be replaced. If the fan won't move, you may have a bad switch somewhere. Call a professional. 2. To replace a bad fan motor, unplug the machine and disconnect the fan wires from the switch panel. You may have to pry apart a plug, use needle-nose pliers to pull the connectors off the switch, or unscrew the connectors. 3. Remove the old motor from its housing, using a Phillips screwdriver or a nut driver and socket. 4. Remove the fan blade from the motor. Use adjustable pliers to open the spring clamp at the center of the fan blade, and then slip the clamp off. Use a flathead screwdriver to gently pry off the blade, then set it aside. 5. Take the motor to an appliance store to buy a replacement. 6. Install the fan blade on the new motor, then install the motor and reattach the wires. Testing and fixing the float assembly Steps: 1. Locate the empty tank float assembly. This assembly consists of a switch, a connecting rod (on some units) and some type of float. It's supposed to shut down the machine when the water reservoir is low, but if the float jams in the down position, the dehumidifier won't turn on. 2. Check the float and connecting rod, if there is one. If the parts are bent and touching the cabinet, use gentle hand pressure to straighten them so they move freely. If your dehumidifier has a float switch that is triggered by the filter housing moving up and down, make sure the housing is centered in its tracks and moves freely. Clean any debris and dirt out of the channels, using a scrub brush. 3. Check that the float connecting rod is contacting the float switch. If it isn't, bend the end of the rod so it touches the switch.
