SOURCE: My water never stops running into Aprilaire 112

Disconnect the two yellow wires. The water should stop. If it does you have a bad (or miswired) humidistat. If the water does not stop the solenoid valve is bad. These valves are known to be expensive. You might want to consider replacing the whole unit.
Good luck

SOURCE: How do I know my aprilair 760 humidifier is working?

A simple check you can perform on your aprilaire 760 is the following:
1) locate the two brown wires coming out of the 760 (these wires will be wired to tell the 760 to turn on when the hvac bower is on and the humidistat is calling for moisture).
2) temprarily disconnect the two brown wires from the external wiring and then short the wires together. All you're doing here is bypassing the your thermostat and bower-on indicator.

With the 70 unit plugged in to the wall outlet and the two brown wires connected together, both the fan and the solenoid valve (water inlet valve) should both be activated.

if it works in the test mode then it should be okay but you can get a humidity gauge from radio shack and set in the house to see how high or low its is. the humidifier is only going to give a max of 45% humidity

Squeeky noise coming from aprilaire 760 when running. Was told bearings were bad but see no parts available for bearings. Any suggestions as to the problem


Hello, usually when you hear a squeeky sound coming from humidifier it is the bearings on the motor, the only option is to replace the motor for the humidifier. I will post a link to a aprilaire store that carries motors for humidifiers. www.aprilairehumidifierparts.com

Is it worth fixing my aprilaire 112 which is 17 years old or replace it with a model 700


I would advise you to replace your old humidifier. The reason for this, is that at 17 years old, you will probably find that parts are scarce, and fixing one thing only breaks another. Also, the old humidifiers, by design, are a perfect breeding place for mold and algae, and switching to a new flow through type is advisable.

I have a aprilaire 112. How do you test the solenoid valve to determine if it working properly?


without using a meter? OK take the water line loose from the humidifier that connects to the solnoid. Turn the humidifier on or raise the humidity and water should flow. Keep in mind that if wired correctly the humidifier will only work when your furnace is running although some can be wired to bring on your furnace. You should hear or feel the click if no water comes out you may have no water flow as these valves are pretty durable and seldom fail

Aprilaire 112


Kurt, a couple of things you can check. First when you turn the humidistat do you hear a click from the solenoid? This would indicate that you are in fact getting power. Check the saddle valve from the supply. Turn it in and out to make sure it is not clogged. You should have a inline strainer on the inlet side of the valve. Make sure it is not clogged with deposits. On the discharge side of the valve should be an oriface, make sure that is clog free. If you have an meter you can check for power at the soleniod or pull the harness off and ohm it. Should show continuity. Catriver...post back.
