Hello, If there's no water flowing through the humidifier filter pad, first make sure that water is getting to the humidifier. The humidifier must have a good stream of water available to it. If there's water in the water line but it's not flowing to the pad, you may have a stuck, clogged, or defective water valve. Often these valves can be cleaned. Try removing the water line from the inlet side of the valve and cleaning out the valve. There may be sediment clogging the orifice. If it's clean, check the coil with an ohm meter; it may be burned open, or the humidistat transformer may have failed. If none of these is the problem, I would suggest you contact a heating and cooling technician for further assistance. Take care.

Humidifier doesn't provide more than 28% humidity


Hi Joe,

If you've got water flowing, but the pad is dry - I suspect that the motor is failing to turn the drum/filter. You might want to somehow mark the drum and watch or check it at short intervals of time to see if it moves or not. If the motor fails to rotate the wet portion of the drum/filter into the airflow - it will be difficult for it to raise the humidity of the space.

I found replacement motors as "#10" on this page: http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/humidifiers/general/747.html These motor looks awfully chintzy to cost $55 - $70 (depending on whether it is a 24V or 115V type). They look very much like a standard clock motor. If that's the case, you can probably replace yours (if defective) for a small fraction of that price - if yours is the 115V style anyway.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Water drains into air return & onto floor


Hello, usually this is a sign of a drain problem or the water is entering the humidifier too fast. If the water is not draining at the end of the drain line something is preventing the water from flowing. I would also make sure that there is no heavy mineral buildup on the water panel pad this can cause water to leak out of the humidifier. Lastly check to make sure there is a orifice inside the supply water tubing leaving the solenoid, if not this causes the water to enter the humidifier too fast.

Have an HE225A, B By-pass Flow thru humidifier about 9 yrs old. Just change the antimicrobial pad with recommended Aprilair 110/220 and when the furnace comes on, there is a loud, hum-like, vibrating noise...


Make sure the new pad you installed is in the right position. The pad is marked with a black dot about the size of a quarter. This end should be up for proper water flow through the pad.I fwater flow is being restricted at the pad the vibrating nosie that you are hearing is the dry portion of the pad vibrating agaist the platic housing of the humidifier. This noise stops once the pad has absorb enough water in this area of the pad.

Too much water running through to humidifier


With the Honeywell he220, you will use alot of water, trying to turn down the water will only reduce your amount of humidity in the home, you may be able to adjust it a little but you need to take the cover off and reduce the water flow a little at a time watching the water as it flows across the pad, you just have to make sure the humidifier pad is getting plenty of water across it, to little and you lose your humidification, hope that was helpful to ya, thanks for your question,

No water flow to the humififier


I've been working on the Aprilaire 110 unit today, after encountering the same problem. Here's how I fixed it: First, with the humidistat turned to 0%, I turned off the water supply saddle valve all the way (all the way to the right)--and then turned it back on all the way (all the way left). Still no water flow. Second, I slightly loosened the inline valve nut on the discharge side of the solenoid on the side of the 110 unit. Water began flowing, so I tightened it back up; and now the water flows freely. Conclusion: You may have some mineral deposit buildup in your lines, as I apparently did.

Lack of humidity


Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)

Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.

Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.

Hope this helps.

Water flow through humidifier


I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.
