Re: aprilaire 600

If the water is always on make shure the 24 volts is hooked up to 24 volts only when the blower is on. Some furnaces have a HUM terminal but make shure it is 24 volts some are 120 volts you must use the transfomer with the AP 600. You may may use a RP50 relay. The setting 5 or 6 is about the avg setting slowly turn down to see if it shuts off .Also make shure the damper is in the winter setting. Hope this helps

My aprilaire mod. 300 seems to release an excess amount of water through the drain tube. it waste a lot of there a fix?

This is typical especially if there is not much air flow across the humidifier. Make sure the fan is running in the humidiifier and the core does not need to be replaced. Sometimes I have had to turn the water valve back a little to cause less water to go through to conserve that wasted water.

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

Aprilaire 400 - Mesh Screen not wet

Not happy either. I bought 3 Aprilaire 400 for my house (3 zones). I picked this style since I have attic installation and did not want to run drains. The first night I expected a major air quality improvement but no change in humidity. I have installed humidifiers before so I know the drastic improvement they make. So I watched for a season and still no humidity improvement. Absolutely nothing at all. Same exact observation as you all described. Only the bottom of the media was wet. I'm dissatisfied with Aprilaire 400. Do not buy! Since I installed humidifiers before and understand them I am converting the Aprilaire 400 to work like a Aprilaire 600. I simply unwired the float sensors, removed the floats/lid and using a knife cut some of the plastic cups so the water would drain well. I also cut open the plastic exit port some too so it wont clog from dust globs. I obviously added drains. HUGE RESULTS. On the very first cycle on the humidity in that zone went from 25 to 48. I am watching carefully. -GK
