Water flow through humidifier

I see that water flows through the enviracaire elite humidifier, down a piper and out a drain and that I can control this flow of water. How fast should the flow be? A drip? A constant flow?

    How do you control the flow of water?

    Glad I found this site and a recent post to boot.
    I have the exact question, I had a different humidifier at my previous home which didn't drain any water when it would come on. So this a strange design for me. I installed the saddle valve on the cold water pipe, I'm not sure if this was the best choice but from the research I did it didn't seem to matter much.
    Now with all this water coming of the drain hose the humidity in the house has not gone up since I installed it 2 days ago!
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

The solenoid that turns on the water to the unit should not change the water flow, so you should get the same amount of water that flows into the solenoid. If you want less water, you can partially close the valve at the water source.

I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.

Water drains into air return & onto floor


Hello, usually this is a sign of a drain problem or the water is entering the humidifier too fast. If the water is not draining at the end of the drain line something is preventing the water from flowing. I would also make sure that there is no heavy mineral buildup on the water panel pad this can cause water to leak out of the humidifier. Lastly check to make sure there is a orifice inside the supply water tubing leaving the solenoid, if not this causes the water to enter the humidifier too fast.

In the water line where it connects to the solenoid is an orifice. You can install a smaller plastic orifice or you can install a manual feed valve to where you can control the flow.

Need to replace the hb1 valve (mfg part mh26533) on my honeywell Enviracaire Elite whole house humidifier but cannot find it locally and no luck so far on the web


Put the humidifier number, not the solenoid number, into Google or directly at www.appliancefactoryparts.com . They show a breakdown of the humidifier and let you order replacement parts. I've just ordered the solenoid assembly, which they say is in stock.

No Water Flow to Honeywell Enviracaire HE225A1006 Humidifier


I have same problem with no water flow on identical humidifier but was able to fix it. Removed the inlet to the solenoid valve and found (1) a small taper mesh filter inside (2) a small diameter orifice that was clogged. Cleaned the miniature filter and used a sewing needle to open the orifice and now works perfectly.

Waterflow


If the unit was installed with a saddle valve, which is most often the case, you could try turning down the water pressure by tightening the valve a bit. Just follow the copper water line from the humidifier back to the main water line and look for a little valve that you can turn. Try to tighten this enough so that you still have water flowing, but at the proper volume so that it doesn't overflow and splash all over.
