Honeywell humidifier short cycles


It's not uncommon for duct work in an older home to Bang as the furnace cycles due to age. The humidifier banging while turning on and of is mostlikely the solenoid valve; if the solenoid is bad it is actually to your benefit to replace the entire humidifier as the solenoids are very expensive, 50%+ of a new humidifier. Plus you get the 5 year parts warranty on the new unit instead of just one year on the solenoid. If you don't want to replace the entire unit you can replace the Humidistat, and that should fix the on/off cycling, however a new humidistat is included with a new unit, which again is more cost effective. They are easy enough to replace as a do it yourselfer, especially when replacing an existing unit. I hope this helps you.

I just bought crane drop humidifier & happy with it.. by my silly mistake, i forgot to use step-down converter due to higher voltage(240V) in my country. It appear burn smell... look like the water...


Unfortunately, plugging a 110 volt appliance into a 240 volt source fries the motor, so buying a water basin is not going to help. Even if the heater element did not break, the higher voltage would have taken out the thermostat and probably other items.

You could replace the water basin, then the thermostat, then the element, but by the time you replaced att that, it would cost you more than replacing the unit with a 220V humidifier.

I don't like to be the bearer of bad knews, but I also have to give you the best advice (at least in my opinion) that I can.

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.

Not using water, filters are dry, doesn't humidify air.


Check your water supply. Make sure the valves are open and/or not blocked. You could have a blocked orifice in the water line by the solenoid valve. Check to see if your humidistat is set high enough. When you replace the water panel could you have accidentally disconnected a wire. Is the door on good. Some humidifiers must have the door closed properly to maintain a proper low voltage connection.
Good luck

Installation problem


I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH V/A OUT-PUT ON TRANSFORMER. I DONT KNOW IF YOURS CAME WITH ITS OWN TRANSFORMER. IF IT DIDNT YOU SHOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF A 40 V/A RATING STAMPED OR PRINTED ON THE EXISTING TRANSFORMER. IF THE TRANSFORMER IS EXTREAMLY HOT ... YOU MAY NEED A 75 V/A TRANSFORMER WITH THE SAME VOLTAGES. INCREASING THE V/A CANNOT DAMMAGE ANYTHING IT JUST GIVES YOU MORE POWER WHEN EXCESIVE CONTROLS AND WIRING ARE ADDED TO A HVAC LOW-VOLAGE (24v) CIRCUIT. IF YOU LIKE YOU CAN CALL ME AT 727-363-7071. I AM A RETIRED HVAC&R CONTRACTOR WITH 45 YEARS EXPERIENCE. I HATE THE NEW SENSORS THEY HAVE TO ACTIVATE THESE NEW HUMIDIFIERS. I USE TO WIRE THE HUMIDIFIER TRANSFORMER (SUPPLIED WITH HUMIDIFIER) TO THE LINE (110V) SIDE TO THE LOW SPEED ON YOUR BLOWER MOTOR. THAT WAY THE ONLY THING THAT INTERUPTS THE CICUIT IS THE HUMIDISTAT. YOU NEVER WANT THE HUMIDIFIER TO RUN IF YOUR SYSTEM IS NOT "CALLING FOR HEAT". NEVER TRY TO ENERGIZE THE WATER SOLENOID THROUGH YOUR HEAT WIRE(USUALLY SMALL THE WHITE WIRE) FROM THE THERMOSTAT. THIS WILL RESULT IN BURNING YOUR HEAT ANTICIPATOR OUT ON THE T-STAT.
