Model 60 controller sometimes clicks when humidifier is running, also furnace fan continues to run after humidity setting is reached.


The clicking is just the water valve opening. Normal. The other issue could be wiring. Some of these were easy to miswire.

He360 fan and water run continuously


Check yor wiring, make sure you have sail or pressure switch wired in series with humidistat to humidifiers 24V power. Pressure or sail switch will disconnect humidifier when furnace fan is off. Humidifier (110V) could be connected to any closest electrical outlet.

Fan and water run continuously on he360


I'm not sure what wiring option did you use, but looks like you did not include pressure or sail switches... When the furnace blower/fan is off it should open the 24volt circuit and close the water valve (normally close) and turn off the fan. If you can post more wiring details maybe pictures or hand sketch I'm sure problem can be fixed in the few minutes.

My aprilaire 600 continues to have water running down the drain at all times, whether the furnace is running or not.


Hello, usually when a humidifier continues to run with the furnace off it means that the solenoid valve is stuck open and must be replaced.

The hot water in our Aprilaire 440 is running constantly through the filter and down into the sump pump. It continues to run even when the furnace is off.


The automatic shutoff switch from the furnace to the humidifier has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced. However If the humidifier has a float valve in it like a toilet tank, it may be hung in the open position,which allows the water to continually run. Take the top of the humidifier and check the float valve's operation. It may simply need cleaning.

Water keeps flowing through my humidifier even when the furnace is not on. Consequently my water bill is quite high. How do I take care of this problem of the water continuously flowing through the unit?


There should be a solinoid valve that starts and stops the flow of the water, based upon a call for heat, and to ensure the fan is running during operation. There must be some failure with this valve, or a short in the connection causing it to run constantly. Hope this helps

Aprilaire 600 humidier: water continuously runs


sounds like you may have it wired to a continuous power source vs one that shuts off with the furnace. The most common wiring is red to C & white to W

Water constantly running in honeywell humidifier


I has the same problem with my HE360 unit. The unit was in fact miswired. The head unit red wires were connected directly to the blue solenoid wires, and activated the solenoid without any signal from the humidistat. As soon as the unit is plugged inn, the water starts running without any signal to the unit. If your unit is miswired, the soleniod blue wires need to be cut and connected to the red crimp connectors.

Aprilaire 760 Humidifier water continues to run


You need to determine whether the problem is in the solenoid or in the furnace electronics. You could put a voltmeter on the solenoid connection to see if the furnace is still holding the solenoid open after the blower stops. This will tell you whether it is the solenoid or not.
