Not sure where you are located (Northern US?) but it really isn't cold enough for the air to hold much water. It is shutting off because the air in your home is already at 40-45%.

I have a similar problem. The RH is around 20+. We live in northern Ohio. The outside air is around 32 degrees. The test position runs for about a minute, but any other setting runs about 10 - 20 seconds. As I move the humidistat know, it will kick on for another 10 seconds.

Humidifier may be undersized or a restriction at the inlet side of the solinoiud valve. Turn water off to humidifier and remove inlet side of water line at the solinoid valve. Carefully remove the inline filter at the inlet side of the valve and wash under some warm water making sure it is clean.

After the humidifier runs for a few minutes it just shuts off.


You might need to clean around the heating element...
we have very hard water and calcium builds up on and around the heating element and all the surrounding parts. I take it apart and pour CPR around the element and scrub with a brush .. once you get it clean it should stay running.

Canister is filled with water...it's plugged in...it's turned on...NO STEAM


Thatis a safety feature designed to avoid overheating due to being empty.
You need to reset it.
Unplug it for a few minutes, and then set it to reset, after plugging it in. It should be working after a few minutes.

I just installed a General 1137 Humidifier. IT


One of the Humidistat yellow wires that was secured with a wire nut had broken off at the insulation line of the wire. While the connection felt secure, the electrical connection was broken.

Water only runs with humidistat in test/reset mode. Aprilaire 600 with an Aprilaire 56 Automatic Humidistat, both about 5 years old. Water line is clear, and test mode runs fine for the 1 minute interval....


you need to make sure your humidity level in the house isnt higher then what your humidifier will provide at any givin outdoor temp. this chart is in the owners manual. you cant remove the wires going to the ODS or it will give an error unless you have a resistor to put in its place. Anyway if the humidifier works in test mode according to AA it works so you may have higher humidity than you think, the highest your gonna get is 45% as the temp outside drops it will allow less humidity so it doesnt cause window condinsation (property damage) here is a copy of the chart. the #s on the left are the dial setting

Humidifier operates only in "Test" mode


if it works in test mode its good your humidty may be higher then you think its highest setting is only 45%

It does not stay running, even if I switch it to "on". It seems to come on if I switch it back and forth but it doesn't stay running


the on setting is actually a test setting. the humidistat with the aprilaire does not have an on setting you can only set it just below test which would be it's highest setting

Unable to get humidity level above 21% with Aprilaire 700A


Hopefully it was installed properly. It should only allow water to run when the furnaces blower is on. The outdoor probe can only be properly checked with an ohm meter. When you replace the evaporative panel, it is very important to have the dark painted mark on the "top" of the panel when it is installed. They do not give these instructions to a homeowner, only a contractor. So i am betting that your new water panel is installed upside down.
Good luck

Doesn't humidify


hi first of all: disassemble the device to its basic components and clean them well - clean the filter of the device well: take it out, wash it well with hot water, dont squeeze it let it dry ... maybe the humidity gauge isnt working ... check it with antoher gauge good luck
