Question about Humidifiers

1 Answer

My westinghouse freestyle freezer FJ383T-L had a small fire in the wiring near the compressor. A flex cord with 2 wires(Blue and Brown) come out of terminal box and were connected to some little part that was clipped to the steal base. This part is all melted now. What is this part?

    Can this part just be replaced or is there a fault in something else that caused the fire.

How to wire the humidistat to the transformer


your transformer should have multiple wires on it. 2 of them are for 120 volt side hook up usually black is your hot 120 v wire and white is the common or neutral wire. on the other side of the transformer you have 2 more wires these are your low 24v side colors can range from red,green, blue, yellow ect. the wires for 24v dont matter about polarity or which one you hook up. one is 24v and the other is common.

I have a Aprilaire 760. I have already tested the brown wires. The fan is still not running. I have power to the unit.


Hello, are you getting 24 volts to the solenoid vlave? If you are and the solenoid does not open it must be replaced, the 24 volts opens the solenoid and also energizes a small relay to turn on the fan. If you are not getting 24 volts to the solenoid valve then start at the transformer and work you way toward the solenoid and see where the voltage stops.

Wiring a generalaire 1042 humidifier to a goodman furnace,when there are no terminals marked hum


24 VAC HUM
The yellow wire connected to the I.D. Blower pressure switch
is powered anytime the pressure switch is closed and provides
24 VAC humidifier control. Remove the yellow wire and connect
the supplied brown jumper wire to the pressure switch
terminal. Reconnect the yellow wire to the "piggyback" terminal
on the brown jumper and then connect the 24 VAC line of the
humidifier to the stripped end of the brown wire. Using a wire
nut or a field-supplied quick connect terminal can make this
connection. The wiring must conform to all local and national
codes. Connect the COM side of the humidifier to the B/C
terminal on the furnace control board (or to the COM side of
the 24 VAC transformer). DO NOT CONNECT 115V HUMIDIFIER
TO THESE TERMINALS.

How do I know my aprilair 760 humidifier is working?


A simple check you can perform on your aprilaire 760 is the following:
1) locate the two brown wires coming out of the 760 (these wires will be wired to tell the 760 to turn on when the hvac bower is on and the humidistat is calling for moisture).
2) temprarily disconnect the two brown wires from the external wiring and then short the wires together. All you're doing here is bypassing the your thermostat and bower-on indicator.

With the 70 unit plugged in to the wall outlet and the two brown wires connected together, both the fan and the solenoid valve (water inlet valve) should both be activated.

When calling for heat and humidity I have 24v at the brown wires going to my Aprilaire, but the solenoid doesn't pick. Is it the control card or solenoid? Both are mounted on the Aprilaire unit. I have a...


If you have 24 volts to the solenoid, then it's not the control card. It's either the solenoid or there's an orifice in the water line at the solenoid that sometimes stops up. To check the solenoid you need to disconnect the power to the system and disconnect the solenoid wires (the two brown wires) and ohm the solenoid. If you get a low ohm reading around 50 ohms or then the solenoid is good and you need to check the orifice. If the ohm meter doesn't move when you ohm across both leads then it's the solenoid and it needs replaced.

My Aprilaire 700 does not seem to be working. The


you can bypass the humidistat by shorting the 2 brown wires on the bottom of the humidifier. just remove the 2 wire nuts and touch the 2 together (just 24v)if it comes on then there is a control problem with the humidistat or wiring if it doesnt come on the control board or transformer may be bad or you dont have 120v to the humidifier on the plug. also make sure your furnace blower is running cause the hum cant come on if its wired properly unless the fan is running. you also may want to go to www.aprilaire.com and get a maintenace kit from their online store. it comes with pad and new hose along with a couple other things.

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.

Water runs when furnace is off, but stops when furnace is on.


the 760 humidifier does not need a transformer wired externally. the 760 has its' own 24v transformer inside the fan compartment. this transformer will provide the power to enrgize the water solenoid as needed. it sounds like to me the additional trasnformer is hot all the time. when the furnace comes on, the unit gets power and the internal transformer is cancelling the power from the external transformer. this would explain why it quits running when the heat is on. since the external transformer is hot all time, when the heat shuts off, the solenoid is getting energized by the external transformer. to make this run correctly, you need to get rid of the external transformer. leave the humidifier high voltage wires hooked up so they are only hot when the furnace runs. if you have a humidistat that has a r and c terminal, you will need to wire these directly to the r and c on the furnace control board and move the switch inside the humidistat to "power". make sure it is not on "bypass". then wire your 2 brown wires from the humidifier to each of the "h" terminals on the humidistat. if you have a humidistat that only has 2 terminals, wire one brown wire to each of the terminals. this should allow it to run properly.

Aprilair model 760 does not go on


If you replaced the solenoid yourself make sure that is a 24VAC some solenoid are 120VAC and they look the same. to see if your humidifier is working you can short the 2 control wires coming from the humidifier I think the wires are brown or oa range. if you put then together the hum. should come on if is pluged in, if not then check your outlet see if you have 120AC plug in a lamp to check the outlet, if not your hum.may have a bad power supply you can get one at www.AppliancePartsPros.com/Parts
