Carrier Humidifier MN# HUMCCLFP1218A - not working

I'm, unfortunately, pretty clueless as you'll see...

The humidifier is 3.5 years old. I noticed it wasn't running. Opened it up (after unpluggin) and see a filter/frame piece which is caked with dried white build-up.

Is this a replaceable filter which I should purchase, install and then turn back on the system or should I call a technician for service?

First of all the white build up is hard water residue. If you haven't replaced the filter in 3 and a half years you NEED to replace it. They have a safety switch may not be satisfied because of your filter.

Hello, typically solenoid valves should be replaced every 7 years and they are not very difficult to replace. Just need to shut off water at saddle valve, turn off power to humidifier, and remove mounting hardware. Here is a link to store which sells the solenoid needed for your humidifier.

I have just completed installing a Honeywell HE220A humidifier to a Carrier Weathermaker 8000vs that was installed in 2003. My problem is that all the identified circuits in previous posts on the circuit...

I believe that Carrier has a 24 volt setup for humidifier but am not sure. On the circuit board I think there is a terminal (HUM). If there is this terminal connect 1 wire to this and 1 wire to C terminal.
If not,pretty sure there is a 120 volt EAC terminal. This would only kick on when blower is on. If you have to use this you would have to install transformer to the EAC connections

Carrier SBP Humidifier is not working

I would suggest turning up the humidistat (usually located on the the return air duct to a higher setting and listening for a "click" noise on the supply valve. If you do hear a click but dont see / hear any water than the culprit is likely the valve itself.
