HE120 By-pass humidifer - Sponge Drum not rotating!!

Please help - Installed a HE120 By-pass humidifer. Wiring seems correct, and the drum was rotating couple of weeks back.

Damper is open for the winter, still doesn't run.

    My drum stopped rotating as well (the unit is about three years old). I can't get help for finding a new motor from Home Depot or Honeywell. I don't have a damper (I don't think) and am pretty sure the owner's manual doesn't show one. I am ready to disconnect the unit and forget about it. Please tell me more about the damper and if you think a failed motor is causing the drum problem. By the way, the plastic motor housing deal will turn slowly if the drum is not inserted, but not at all when the drum is in place.

How do I wire up a Honeywell HE120 so it gets power only when the blower is on?


Hi,

You didn't say what kind of furnace you have, but here is a link to what is known as an "air flow" switch that will allow the humidifier to operate only when it senses air flow through the furnace:

Motor runs fine--but drum "skips" and does not


Hello, if you mean the motor runs fine without the drum in place then it could be that the drum is not properly seated on the small motor shaft, also alot of times i see that the motor runs fine but once the drum is in place it skips and does not move due to the gear and shaft inside the motor being slightly craked or broken. If the drum is seated properly than the motor must be replaced.

Humidifier drum Honeywell HE120 is not turning.


This happened with my humidifier as well. When the mineral deposits build up to the point where the drum binds, and is difficult to turn, the gears on the motor will strip. The clicking you hear are the ends of the stripped teeth of the motor gear rubbing up against the mating gears. Suggest you pull the motor - just remove the wire nuts from the control unit (replace wire nut over the exposed 24 Volt wire on each as you do this), then loosen and remove the nuts on the inside of the unit holding the motor. A number of manufacturers offer 'clock motors' than have a 1 rpm speed, and flat slot to receive the drum spindle. I used a Loeb motor which is commonly available in hardware stores, and had to insert a couple of small washers as standoffs, so the coupler was the right distance from the drum spindle. Reattach the controller wires, and you're done.

Airconditioning is making baby cough and nose run would a humidifer help? will a humidifer make the room hot?


You may need a HRV/ERV installed. Depends on your indoor air quality(IAQ). It may be allergies. I would talk to a reputable heating/cooling contractor in your area to evaluate your system, recommendations.

My honeywell humidifier attachment on my furnace will not start after the summer with water running to it.I have the humidity cranked up, but the filter is still bone dry.


Humidifiers usually are wired up to ONLY come on when the Heat is on and the fan running....anyother time you check it it will not be powered or wet...turn your heat on , wait till the fan comes on...then turn up your humidistat you should hear a click if its a flow through type and water should start flowing from the top...or if its tyhe drum style with the sponge...you should see it then turning...if it doesnt turn the pad/spindle may not be installed properly...if only fits one way

Continous water flow on a 1042lh humidifer


theholts220 - Sounds like they needed to install a bit larger transformer . You can also buy a A 50 Sensing relay that attaches to the wires for your motor and when you turn on the furnace it will allow the power to go to the humidistat. Very strange though they do not use a lot of power. Check and make sure the wires are not pinched or touching metal somewhere.


TLuzzo - The humidistat seems to be working when you turn it down. The wires for the solenoid should be hooked up to your furnace circuit board. The instruction manual will tell you where. If you dont have a spot on your circut board the A 50 sensing reley is they way to go. They are inexpensive

Aprilaire 600: water only runs in "Emergency" Heat mode


When your unit is on normal the outside unit works and the inside only the fan runs. your heat pump does not remove any humidity when it operates so the installation cotractor did not wire it to operate then. you can change the wiring on the humidifier to operate all the time by wiring it to the fan (g) terminal then it should work just turn it all the way to the lowest humidity when you are in cooling mode.

Motor turning real slow


THE MOTOR ONLY TURNS THE SPONGE DRUM AT MAYBE 10X'S PER MINUTE. THIS IS A BY-PASS TYPE HUMIDIFIER THAT RELIES ON YOU FURNACE BLOWER MOTOR TO SUPPLY AIR ACCROSS THE SPONGE MEDIA. NOTICE THE 5"-7" ROUND HOLE MUST BE DUCTED TO THE PLENUM OR RETURN AIR. (IF MOUNTED ON THE PLENUM, THE HOLE HAS TO BE DUCTED TO THE RETURN AIR, AND VISA-VERSA.) CAUTION!!!IF YOU HAVE CENTRAL AIR? A "DAMPER" MUST BE INSTALLED AND KEPT CLOSED THROUGH-OUT THE "COOLING SEASON". SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPRESSOR CAN RESULT FROM TOO COLD OF AIR ... CIRCULATING AND "BY-PASSING YOUR EVAPORATOR COIL".
