First check to see if you have power at the transformer, that controls the humidifier. If you have 24v there, check to make sure you have 24v going into the humidistat, and 24v leaving the humidstat. If all this is correct, and the solenoid is not getting power, you may have an isolation relay wired into the blower motor (only in some applications) that has gone bad. Check the blower cabinet for this relay. Hope this helps

Have aprilaire 600 with York furnace. There is no water flow to the device. Water is in the line leading up to the valve prior to the humidifier but none is going into the humidifier. Checked all the...

Since there is water at the inlet of the valve this indicates either a bad solenoid valve or no power is being apllied to the solenoid valve. You will need a multimeter to check, if there is power then then the valve is faulty and will need to be replaced, if no power at the valve then you will have to trace the circuit back to the transformer and see where the voltage stops. The voltage need to be checked when the Furnace blower motor is operating.

Honeywell he220 humidifier problems

Try removing the cover, and manually cycling on the controler switch? Does the solenoid click on, next to the humidifier (the unit with the water line running through it, with wires coming out of it)? If it does click on, is water running down the water pad? It doesn't necessarily drain water when it's working correctly. All of the water SHOULD be getting evaporated into the air return duct.

If it's clicking on, but no water is running out, you should check the water supply saddle valve and make sure it wasn't turned off during servicing.

If it's not clicking on, you should test that you are getting voltage (12v-18v DC) to the solenoid. If you're not, check all wiring connections and make sure they're tight. If you still don't get power, you have either a problem with your control unit/humidistat, your DC power supply, or the control board on your furnace. You may need to call a HVAC technician at that point, depending on your comfort level/skill level in that regard.

When you say the solenoid "stays hot" do you mean it's physically hot to the touch? Hotter than the water lines running into it?

If the solenoid is getting hot, it probably has a bad coil, and if you continue to operate it, you will probably burn up your DC power supply.

If you're getting voltage, you have water pressure, and the solenoid is still not opening, replace the solenoid.

No water to furnace humidifier

It's probably the saddle valve. The self-piercing needle rusts and clogs the water line. Replace the saddle valve with a non self piercing one. Also, check the voltage to the solenoid valve on the humidifier. You should be getting 24 ac volts. If not, replace the transformer. If voltage is present and still no water, then replace the solenoid valve (very expensive).

I just bought crane drop humidifier & happy with it.. by my silly mistake, i forgot to use step-down converter due to higher voltage(240V) in my country. It appear burn smell... look like the water...

Unfortunately, plugging a 110 volt appliance into a 240 volt source fries the motor, so buying a water basin is not going to help. Even if the heater element did not break, the higher voltage would have taken out the thermostat and probably other items.

You could replace the water basin, then the thermostat, then the element, but by the time you replaced att that, it would cost you more than replacing the unit with a 220V humidifier.

I don't like to be the bearer of bad knews, but I also have to give you the best advice (at least in my opinion) that I can.

As soon as the water valve opens to let water run through the system it closes.

Hello, sounds like either a low voltage wiring issue or the solenoid is bad. I would check the wiring and make sure it is all secure and tight, if the wiring checks out good replace the solenoid valve.

Check to see if you are getting 24 volts from the transformer, if not, turn off power to the transformer and check the resistance of the secondary side, if no resistance the transformer is bad and need to be replaced. Also check to make sure all the wires are secure. If you are getting voltage at the transformer then bring power directly from transformer directly to solenoid valve and it should click open and let the water through, if it does then either the sailswitch/current sensing relay is bad or humidistat is bad.

HE220A1019--honeywell humidifier --water continuously flows

Check to see if the solenoid is still getting voltage after unit shuts off. If it is not getting any voltage,it's the solenoid, if it is getting voltage then it's not the solenoid, it's whatevers sending the voltage to it, usually a relay.

Aprilair 760 Humidfier will not stop water flow to EV panel

If the water continues runs nonstop even when the heater is turned off, you might have either a bad solenoid valve or a bad humidistat. Simply disconnect one of the two low voltage wires going into the unit. If the water turns off then your problem is most likely your humidistat or the low voltage wiring. If the water continues to run even when the low voltage is disconnected you have a defective solenoid valve.
Good luck.......

Not using water, filters are dry, doesn't humidify air.

Check your water supply. Make sure the valves are open and/or not blocked. You could have a blocked orifice in the water line by the solenoid valve. Check to see if your humidistat is set high enough. When you replace the water panel could you have accidentally disconnected a wire. Is the door on good. Some humidifiers must have the door closed properly to maintain a proper low voltage connection.
Good luck
