Model #HE365A,B Powered Flow-Through Humidifier LEAKING BAD


The Humidifier could be leaking for several reasons. First make sure the water panel is replaced and not full of sediment. Check the drain line make sure the water is flowing freely. And lastly, check the supply line for any cracks.

No humidity in house can not see water coming out of solinoid or what ever that device is that the water line goes into and comes out of between the water line and the line going to filter


Hello. the first thing you need to determine is if the solenoid is getting 24 volts when the furnace turns on, you should be getting 24 volts at the solenoid valve. If not you need to start at the transformer and see if you are getting 24 volts there, if not then most likely the transformer is bad and must be replaced, if you are getting 24 volts at the transformer then check the wiring and make sure it;s tight. also check the humidistat and sail switch/ current sensing relay to make sure they are working properly. If you are getting 24 volts at the solenoid valve and is not allowing water thru than it must be replaced.

Toilet refills and water stops running. a couple seconds later get the sound of air which continues. if I push black float down a bit it stops manually but when I let go continues??


It can be one of two things first you either have air in your watter line in this case let water run for a while and see if you get air if so let it run until it quits spitting or contact your water company for help.Second the diaphram is worn in the top of the valve in this case the whole valve will need to be replaced turn off water flush toilet put pan or bowl under water line at toilet remove water line at toilet .Unscrew the fitting and remove hose next remove the large plastic nut on the bottom of tank .Some water will leak out hence the bowl! remove valve replace wit new one line up in same direction it was removed put on new rubber washer supplied,Tighten plastic nut replace hose and tighten turn on water that should fix it!

Water leaking from bottom


If you are talking about the water line at the water soleniod valve, it is not a o-ring. It is called a ferrel. Any hardware store such as ace will have them in the brass fittings area. It will be 1/4". If your water line is copper you will have to loosen the nut and slide it up out of the way and cut the old ferrel off. The same with plastice tubing. the only difference is that with the plastic tubing you will also need to get the brass insert sleeve as well. Less than a dollar total. to install, slide the ferrel over the tube, if plastic do the same then insert the brass sleeve into the tubing. Slide the tube into the valve till it stops. Then slide the ferrel down till it stops. then slide down the nut and tighten till snug. if it leaks after tightening snug it a little more. But be gentle, its a one shot deal because it locks in place and you will have to cut it off and start with a new one again. Also when you cut the tubing cut off as close to the ferrel so you dont run short on tubing to reconnect. hope this helps

No water going to humidifier


Easy fix: Check the solenoid. Turn off the power to your humidifier and the central air unit. On the side of your humidifier is a brass solenoid. It can get clogged with lime and calcium. Most videos and instruction manuals tell you to replace the solenoid. No need if you can turn a wrench.

1. After all power is off turn the water off to the humidifier and disconnect the top line water line at the nut.

2. Disconnect the bottom line water line that will go to your humidifier.

3. Take a Philips screw driver and remove the two screws that hold the solenoid on the side of the plastic housing of the humidifier.

4. Leave the wires connected unless you need more room to work. If you disconnect the wires then label them with tape (colored) so you put them back on correctly.

5. In the inlet or outlet water pip of the solenoid is a trainer that may be clogged. With a paper clip pull it out and clean it. If it’s clearly clogged then stop and put all back together. That may have been your problem.

6. If it’s not clogged then it may be clogged inside the solenoid.

7. The nut on the end of the solenoid is silver. Take it off and the magnet (main power unit) will slide off.

8. Notice the flat head screw post on the end of the solenoid. Turn it and remove. Be careful as a small spring loaded plunger is inside.

9. Take apart and clean all parts. You should be able to blow air in the intake water line tube and it go out the out water line tube as well as were the plunger hits in the center of the solenoid. If not then it’s clogged.

10. If clogged then just soak all but any parts with rubber or plastic in a small white vinegar solution for a couple of hours to eat away that lime. If it’s not clogged then you probably have a bad solenoid.

11. To check and see if the solenoid is bad just put it all back together but do not re-wire the solenoid to the humidifier.

12. Turn on everything without the wires going to the solenoid (turn on meaning put power back to the unit.

13. When the system is running as it should without the humidifier and solenoid wires attached check the two lead wires with a volt meter for 24v. If you have 24v then you have a bad solenoid and need a new one. If no 24v then you may need a new control panel.

Hope this helps you out.
