    what are you trying to say. The water is coming out of the tank. But the yellow light comes on when the fan is on and the blue like comes on when the fan is off. I never feel any mist when the humidifier is on. I alway use an humidifier in the winter cause I use gas heat and it drys the air out so much.

To vrify its working, hold a piece of ice in your hand, until its really cold. now hold you hand infrount of the humidifier and turn it on.. If water condenses on your hands its ok, if not then it aint working..

    If water level in tank is dropping and fan runs then I'd say it is working.



    OK?

    Q: I hear the fan turning, but I don’t see any mist. Is my humidifier operating properly?

    A:
    Dry air is pulled through the system and a fan disperses invisible, moisture balanced air. There is no

    “mist” emitted. When operating normally you will feel only cool air coming from the unit. Monitor the

    water level in your Tank/ Base. If you notice a decrease in the Water Tank over 24 hours then the unit

    is operating normally.

HI, Troubleshooting an Aprilaire Humidifier

Aprilaire, a manufacturer of indoor air quality products including thermostats, air cleaners and dehumidifiers, also offers a line of whole house humidifiers. Installed in your existing heating and cooling system, humidity is produced by a supplied water source that flows over a water panel before being distributed throughout your air through the heating and cooling system. Issues you may need to troubleshoot with your Aprilaire humidifier include error messages and the unit producing too little or too much humidity.

Things You'll Need:

Replacement water panel


Turn down the control dial by one setting if condensation appears on your windows or walls.


Turn up the control dial by one setting if there is a lack of humidity, often indicated by dry skin or peeling wallpaper or paint.


Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" if the humidifier does not run. Verify the heating and air conditioning unit blower is operating. If the heating and air conditioning unit is not operating or you are unable to resolve the issue contact a heating contractor.


Contact a heating contractor if you turn the control dial to "Off" and the humidifier continues to run.


Contact your Aprilaire dealer (see Resources) if you notice an error code on the display and the "Call Dealer for Service" light flashes.


Turn the control dial to "Off" and turn off the water supply if the yellow "Change Water Panel" light flashes. Lift the front panel off of the humidifier. Slide out the water panel. Insert a new water panel. Replace the front cover. Turn the control dial to "Test/Reset" until the "Humidifier On" light flashes. If you feel uncomfortable changing the water panel, contact a heating contractor.


Tips & Warnings

Purchase replacement water panels through your Aprilaire dealer or a heating contractor.

When does the humidifier fan start? Does the water flow trigger it? Will the fan nt start if I turn off the water supply?


Humidifier should be powered from the furnace heating 24 volt terminals through a humidistat and then to your humidifier. The fan and the water solenoid on the unit should come on together. if the water is not turned on the fan should still run, unless the unit is not plugged in.

Humidifier will not turn on (no fan, no water flow)

A breakdown diagram of parts etc above.

Shows you the HE360A.
To me it sounds like it is wired incorrectly, the solenoid should NOT get too hot at all. The PDF above shows wiring data.

I installed a 700A model on my furnace (does not have a bypass but has a fan built in). It is insallted on the supply side per the instructions. The "humidifier on" light is on when the funace is running....


try tying the 2 yellow wires together that come out of it and as long as door is on properly and unit is not defective it should start if not most likely the control board inside is bad

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

What does the yellow light mean?


when the light changes to yellow it is just adjusting to the newly added water. If you let it run the light should turn back to green. I think the light is only indicative of water level. I've had this humidifier for over a year and only gotten a yellow light once. It turned green after some of the water in the basin drained. Hope this helps

No water vapor coming out


You might need to check either the water level sensor or make sure that there aren't any deposits on the nebulizer. I just posted the following sections from the manual for another problem:

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly. (I scanned a page from the manual that shows how to dismantle and reassemble the sensor: here)
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:
