Hi,

My Slantfin GF210W humifier's "reset" light flashes on and then moments later turns off, on, off, on, off... I don't know what's wrong with the unit.

Most likely it is the water sensing transistor (C1815) in the unit. This can be replaced but it would have to be by someone who knows how to repair electronic instruments. The cross for the C1815 transistor is NTE85 and sells for about $1.50.

    Update:



    I mentioned about replacing the water sensor transistor previously. This sensor insures that the water reservoir is adequate; however, there is another sensor on the heating side that may be the culprit in this case. There is a small thermostat switch that sits on the heating coil underneath. This thermostat is designed to prevent the coil from overheating when no water is present. What probably has happened is the switch is doing what is designed to do but has become defective and is opening and closing at a lower temperature. So what is happening is the red light reset indicator will come on because this switch opens, the coil starts to cool and the switch closes and the light goes off. Because it is defective, this is occurring when it shouldn’t, causing this maddening on/off cycle.



    Fortunately, this sensor is easy to replace if you’re handy. Make sure you unplug the humidifier from power. Turn it over, remove six screws, and carefully left the lid. Look toward the heating element and you will see a small button type device with two wires plugged into it and is attached with two screws off to the side of the element. This particular thermostat is obsolete and very difficult to find. However, there is an excellent substitute made by Stancor for around $5.00. Their part number is STO-325.



    Remove the two screws and lift off the thermostat and slide the wire connectors off. Simply reverse the process for installation and be careful to replace the bottom lid, being careful not to crimp the wiring.

After cleaning everything the humidifier no longer runs. When I turn it on no matter what level I set the desired humidity to the green light goes on indicating that it is at the desired humidity. Before...


The humidstat controler has failed. By cleaning the humidfier you introduced moisture into the system. Dry the humidstat controler with a hair dryer and try the humifier again. If the unit still does not shut off at maxium setting. Replace the humidfier controler.

HI, Troubleshooting an Aprilaire Humidifier

Aprilaire, a manufacturer of indoor air quality products including thermostats, air cleaners and dehumidifiers, also offers a line of whole house humidifiers. Installed in your existing heating and cooling system, humidity is produced by a supplied water source that flows over a water panel before being distributed throughout your air through the heating and cooling system. Issues you may need to troubleshoot with your Aprilaire humidifier include error messages and the unit producing too little or too much humidity.

Things You'll Need:

Replacement water panel


Turn down the control dial by one setting if condensation appears on your windows or walls.


Turn up the control dial by one setting if there is a lack of humidity, often indicated by dry skin or peeling wallpaper or paint.


Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" if the humidifier does not run. Verify the heating and air conditioning unit blower is operating. If the heating and air conditioning unit is not operating or you are unable to resolve the issue contact a heating contractor.


Contact a heating contractor if you turn the control dial to "Off" and the humidifier continues to run.


Contact your Aprilaire dealer (see Resources) if you notice an error code on the display and the "Call Dealer for Service" light flashes.


Turn the control dial to "Off" and turn off the water supply if the yellow "Change Water Panel" light flashes. Lift the front panel off of the humidifier. Slide out the water panel. Insert a new water panel. Replace the front cover. Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" until the "Humidifier On" light flashes. If you feel uncomfortable changing the water panel, contact a heating contractor.


Tips & Warnings

Purchase replacement water panels through your Aprilaire dealer or a heating contractor.

I replaced the water panel on our aprilaire 600 humidifier. I adjusted the thermostat to call for heat to test it. When the dial (non-digital control panel for the humidifier) is turned to test/reset,...


Thank you for contacting us with regards to your model 600 Humidifier. The Change Water Panel indicator should flash when the control knob is set to the Test/Reset mode. The flashing indicates that the timer has been successfully reset. However, the humidifier should operate for the first 60 seconds of Test mode as long as your furnace is running. If your humidifier does not turn on, contact your installer. The humidifier may require service.
We appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance.
Sincerely,

How do you set and or reset the "filter replacement"schedule on the April air #700 model?


The owner's manual reads "After the Water Panel is replaced, turn the Control knob to the “Test/Reset” position until the green “Humidifier ON” light flashes, to reset the Water Panel change timer."

Hope you find this to be very helpful.

Let me know if you have any questions. :-)

House is dry though it's quite cold outside and furnace is running. Aprilaire is turned up to 35 (I have a dial, not a digital panel). the water panel is completely dry (should it be?)


unless the humidty in your home is higher then 35%. if it is then the humidifier would not run. try turning it up higher and see if it comes on. Do you hear a click in the humidistat? as you turn up the dail when you hear the click is when the humidifier should come on. Also remember your furnace must be running for the humidifier to come on. if you hear the click and the humidifier fan comes on but no water, you may have a clogged inline filter located in the solinoid valve or a bad soliniod. all parts for your humifier can be purchased from www.aprilaire.com

Reset the unit once it is refilled by pushing the power button and holding it down for 5 seconds before releasing. This should reset your unit to factory settings.
