No humidity in the house


Hello, the first to confirm is if you are receiving 24 volts at the transformer, if you are then check for 24 volts going into the humidistat and out of the humidistat, if voltage is confirmed there then check if your solenoid is recieving 24 volts, if it is and the solenoid is not letting water into the humidifier than your solenoid is bad and must be replaced. If you do not have 24 volts at the transformer then turn off power to the transformer and set your meter to read continuity, you should have resistance if not the transformer is bad and must be replaced. If you have power to the humidifier and not humidifieing properly then you have to set the humidistat according to what the outdoor temp is, the outside temp determines what setting and % of humidity you should have in your home. Here is a what it should be
-20 set to 15%
-10 set to 20%
0 set to 25%
10 set to 30%
20 set to 35%
above 30 set to 40%

Aprilaire manual humcontrol 4655 hum 560 .when control clicks works fine.move dial to outside temp never works changed 4655 twice i have 28\r\nvolts ac all the time


When humidistat is at ouside temperature that may be a lower humidity setting than is in your home. Doesn't sound like there is a problem. If it is too dry in home you can set it above ouside temp to turn on. The ouside temp setting is estimate that you will not get condensation on windows.

The humidstat light is on when I first try to get humidifier going.


This is normal, based on where you have the humidistat knob set to, it will go out only after reaching the humidity level set on the knob. Also if you have it setting in a fairly large open area of your home, it may take a loooong time to reach the proper humidity level. My cousin has one of these units setting in his living room, which has a cathedral ceiling, the unit's humidistat light never goes off, and the unit runs continually, unless the resevoir runs low. But the unit operates fine.

Hope this answers your question. You may refer to your user's manual regarding this, or if you don't have a copy, you may download one at this link: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000006709.pdf

Water and motor always run on Aprilaire 760, even when furnace is off.


Hope this solves your problem, look for the humidistat, it should be located on cold air return duct near furnace, make sure it is not set in the on position, if it is, then this is why it is staying on, please set humidistat any where from 20 to 35%, never over 40%. If the humidistat is set properly and is still running, you may have a electrical problem, humidifier circuit should only receive power(24 volts) when the indoor blower motor of furnace receives power, also if you have galvanized plumbing in your home, you may have a piece of rust or lime deposit in the humidifier solenoid valve preventing it from closing, turn water off to humidifier and disconnect water supply line entering solenoid valve inspect & clean protector screen. Good luck.

Too much humidity in house water sitting on windows


Adjust your humidistat to lower humidity level. If you do not have a humidistat, get one and install following mfg guidelines. Home Depot sells one for about $30

Does Not Collect Water


sounds like a faulty humidistat, but may also be nearly out of freon. I have a GE unit that is also a portable air conditioner...works great for 5 years now...
