Question about Honeywell Power Humidifier: Furnace Humidifier/ Humidifier

IFC on Trane furnace

Trane literature says when the thermostat is set to 'on', the furnace fan will operate for the cost of a 60 watt bulb. I know four Trane owners (units less than 2 years old) and only one of the four operates at that level....the rest are operating at approximately 350 watts and it is cost prohibitave to run. I want to get full benefit of my electronic filter. Local service techs say they don't have a solution...Trane headquarter techs say it is in the IFC. They did not say if it can be tweaked.

If the manufacture says it is the IFC then you should have the IFC checked by the company who installed it if it is under warranty still

SOURCE: Honeywell HCM-525 owners/operation manual NEEDED PLEASE!

The filter should be located below the tank. the tank should lift off of the unit and there should be a rectangular cavity where the filter fits. You will most likely find the old filter dried up and filled with a white crust. That is salt and other minerals in the tap water that the filter catches.

SOURCE: Furnace blower blows cold air

It is possible that you did not set the new blower on the proper speed. Black wire is high. Blue is medium. Red is low. If the fan is operating to slow it can run to hot and trip the high limit control. Make sure the filters are clean. When the old motor went bad, the problem might not have been discovered rite away your high limit control might need to be changed.
Also anytime you work on a furnace you can kick up some dust. Always clean the flame sensor.
Good Luck

Dry house with furnace mounted humdifier


Is the furnace fan set on auto or on. You will get better humidity if you keep the fan on. It won't add much to your electric bill because many of the newer furnaces operate the fan on DC voltage. Try it!

How do I know my aprilair 760 humidifier is working?


A simple check you can perform on your aprilaire 760 is the following:
1) locate the two brown wires coming out of the 760 (these wires will be wired to tell the 760 to turn on when the hvac bower is on and the humidistat is calling for moisture).
2) temprarily disconnect the two brown wires from the external wiring and then short the wires together. All you're doing here is bypassing the your thermostat and bower-on indicator.

With the 70 unit plugged in to the wall outlet and the two brown wires connected together, both the fan and the solenoid valve (water inlet valve) should both be activated.

Looks like my humidistat calls for coil fan and for furnace heat


It sounds like the humidifier may be improperly wired.
It's hard to solve without checking the wiring, but it seems like the humidistat is wired so that as the dial is advanced, it incorrectly turns on the fan, or furnace, or both.  The contacts of the humidistat should be wired so that they turn on the solenoid only.  Also, the power to the humidistat, to turn on the solenoid, should come on only when the fan is on.
Hope this helps!

Humidifier won't turn on with furnace fan set to Auto.


There is a devise called a current sensing relay (a little black box that hangs on a blower motor wire that senses current from that wire) If you have such a devise it should hang from the white (common) wire. Loop the wire through twice.

I had this problem several years ago. In order for the water to flow, the outside temperature sending unit must indicate to the controller that it is less than 60F. If not, the unit will not operate outside of test mode. Check the temp outside where your sending unit is (could the sun be heating that side of the house?) and ensure that the circuit to the sending unit is working. I had a bad wire splice inside a wire nut stopping the circuit. Took me a long while to figure it out.

If the outside temp and your sending unit circuit is ok, I wish you luck on your troubleshooting.

Furnace


I would guess from the info provided that you only have two wires going to your thermostat which would explain why the fan switch doesn't work on the thermostat. You can bypass the thermostat as a first step in troubleshooting. After that it depends on the type of furnace, standing pilot or electronic ignition...
