Hi,

For the humidifier to work you need to have th blower running do that means that you either have to turn the blower on manaually or the heat must be running alot...
I would suggest that you turn the blower or fan switch to the on position for a few days to force the blower to run...this will get the humidity up and then you may have enough runtime for heating for it to keep up then...

HONEYWELL HE260


Unless you are using a current sensing relay or sail switch, you need to get the humidifier power from the blower motor supply so it only operates when the blower is on.

Since you can manually control the humidifier, there is not a fault with the solonoid.

I have the unit listed below and I have an amber button on the unit that keeps on flashing (reset button). I've try to push the button in and reset it but nothing happens... The unit also dos not have any...


Not having any water in the reservoir is more than likely the problem. Has someone turned off the water supply line valve to the humidifier? Does the inline, water sediment filter need cleaning or replacing? The real question is, why did the water supply to the humidifier stop? Troubleshoot that problem based on the questions asked above and you'll solve the problem.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

I can't tell if it is working. The humidity reading in the house is 20%. When I open the humidifier, I see that the water is trickling over the filter but it doesn't seem to ever get saturated.


Hello, is there water going down the drain tube, if so then the humidifier is working. The pad does not really get saturated the water just trickles on the pad and the the fan blows it into the air duct. your outside air temp determines what your humidistat should be set at.

Outside Temperature -10 F 0 F 10 F 20 F 30 F Recommended Indoor
Relative Humidity
20% 25% 30% 35% 35%

No Water Flow to Honeywell Enviracaire HE225A1006 Humidifier


I have same problem with no water flow on identical humidifier but was able to fix it. Removed the inlet to the solenoid valve and found (1) a small taper mesh filter inside (2) a small diameter orifice that was clogged. Cleaned the miniature filter and used a sewing needle to open the orifice and now works perfectly.

Honeywell HE260 leaks somewhere


Neither, even if the solenoid or humidistat stick, it should always drain properly. Is the unit mounted on the cold air return duct or the supply plenum? If it's mounted on the supply plenum, the water panel might be getting blown forward and spilling the water. High efficient furnaces also can leak water on the floor if its drain is restricted. If hum. is mounted on return duct make sure drain is clear by blowing through it. On Honeywell hum's I've seen the rubber hose from the solenoid valve to the distributor tray leak too, check the rubber 1/4" hose.

Honeywell HE260 housing melted/deformed


Humidifiers are made from a very durable heat resistant plastic. If it melted or warped you have a serious overheating problem. That plenum should not get over 140 to 155 degrees. If this furnace is running to hot it could stress and crack your heat exchanger. Install a good carbon monoxide detector in your home!!!! Check your filters. Check your airflow. Make sure all registers in the house are open. Is your blower speed set high enough? If this furnace is operating to hot it is definitely worth the investment to have a pro look at it before you replace the humidifier.
Is this overheating problem new? Or was this something thar happened years ago and may have since been solved But you are just now noticing the heat damege that was caused.

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.

Doesn't humidify


hi first of all: disassemble the device to its basic components and clean them well - clean the filter of the device well: take it out, wash it well with hot water, dont squeeze it let it dry ... maybe the humidity gauge isnt working ... check it with antoher gauge good luck
