Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you must have a defective water inlet valve, and its letting water in, just a little.. it maybe dirt in the valve, clogging it.

My Aprilaire 600 is dripping from the front toward the bottom... Can I fix it myself or do I need my maintenance guy?


Hello, check to make sure that the drain line is not blocked, this could cause the water to back up in the humidifier and leak, also make sure the water panel is clean and free of any mineral deposits.

2 months into the heating season I noticed a large puddle around my heater. the Aprilaire 600 unit was leaking. The distrution tray had a red substance around the water holes. Also the overflow drain line...


Mold can really cause problems with humidifiers-
They do need to be serviced, cleaned up, and something like weak bleach used to kill mold spores, -- get it all tidy and clean!
Were you able to clean out the drain line?-- and is it draining now?
And is the float valve shutting off the water flow, before it reaches the overflow drain pipe?
Another concern would be the soaking pad-- Has it been changed recently?

Should water be continualing running through the drain tube?


Water will flow over the filter pad as long as the unit is calling for humidity. once the unit is satisfied the solenoid valve should stop the water flow. if the water continues to flow with out call then solenoid valve has failed open. hope this helps.suppling an owners manual in case you need one.

The unit leaks water on the floor


you need to replace the pad every season. if you are using a generic pad maybe more often. it also must be level and the drain coming off bottom clear. i suggest getting pads from aprilaire.com . not the generic from hardware store. also if its got a black feed tube going from the solinoid valve to the top of the humidifier pad you may want to replace that aswell, they have been known to crack the new ones are grey.

Aprilaire 700 leaks water from bottom of case


Install new water panels yearly. On the new panel make sure that the painted dot on the edge of the panel is on the top when you install it.
Always clean the distribution tray and the frame. Make sure the notch on the edge of the distribution tray faces away from the furnace. Make sure the humidifier was installed level. Keep the drain tube opening clear. Insure there is no blockages in the drain tube.
Good luck

Water runs out of the bottom of the unit


Check your plastic water orifice. It is in the hose fitting connected to the outlet tube of the water solenoid. It should be a blue one. Mine was completely eaten through, allowing full water flow, and thus overflowing the distribution tray. I replaced mine yesterday and no more water drips. May as well reflace the filter on the inlet tube of the solenoid at the same time. I used a piece of very stiff, but thin, wire formed into a small hook to remove both old parts. Replacements are readily available from multiple sources on line.
