Question about AutoFlo 200P Humidifier

1 Answer

I just installed a new AutoFlo 200P. I have 24V to the 200P motor, but the motor won't spin. I can't even get it to move if I put pliers on the output shaft (I'm not forcing it, though). Any thoughts?

Like to help, but I have a similar? problem. My brand new motor turns, but gets hung up and clicks. That's why I bought a new one in the first place. Now it's hot. Tried to jiggle, make sure there is enough room for the wheel to rotate. Seems to be sufficient space. Why won't the wheel turn?
It's almost like the water weighs too much and holds it the wheel in place and the gears aren't strong enough to turn it.

My furnace is leaking when the air is on and the motor in the autoflo 800 humidifier is bad. Could this be the problem?

Hello, the motor itself wont cause the unit to leak water, the float valve on the unit is what adjusts how much water is coming into the humidifier. If the float valve is not adjusted properly or broken it will cause to much water to enter the humidifierand therefrore overflow. Replace the motor and chexk the float valve to enure it is adjusted properly and if it is stuck or broken replace.

The AutoFlo 2000P unit ( 12 years old ) on my furnace is leakng water from the drain spout, which it had never done before. It also is emitting sounds like a low clicking or grinding sound. Where is the...

Tim, they're are generally not hard wired. At least, by today's standards. They're usually plugged into a receptacle. If that's not the case with yours. Open the lid and lift the float valve and tie it some way that can't lower. That will stop water from entering the humidifier tank and it should stop working. Also, look for the water line shutoff valve and turn it OFF. That way, you can be double sure it will stop running.

Hope this helped you to turn it off.

Is set to 60 end is no water coming

First, is the saddle 'T' valve open on the water supply line? If it's not turn it ON no water can fill the tank. If after that, it doesn't work, there may be a problem with one of the solenoids.

I have included a link to your Owners Manual, which may be of assistance, since it has a Trouble Shooting Guide.

Hope this helps you.

Just moved into home with a250 mumidifier. water not getting to unit. It's turned on.

Is the water supply on? If you have a voltmeter, check for voltage across the solenoid valve leads when the furnace is heating. If you have voltage, but don't hear a click when the furnace turns on, suspect faulty solenoid.

Aprilaire 560 constantly drains water

check to see if you have 24 volts between to 2 yellow wires coming out of the water solenoid. if you have 24v, then it is still getting energized to run. if it does not have 24v and the water is still running, the solenoid is stuck open. most likely from water deposits. sometimes you can take the solenoid apart and clean it, but probably better off just getting a new solenoid.

Wiring problem

Sounds like you may have put 120v through a 24v solenoid and humidistat.
Is the HUM terminal on the furnace 120v or 24v?
If it is a 120v terminal you will need a 120x24v transformer and a new solenoid and maybe a new humidistat.

Not working.

A console humidifier that fails to humidify a room could have a bad humidistat, fan switch or float switch--problems that take specialized equipment to diagnose. But before you call in a pro, it's worth your time to test the fan motor and float assembly, since repairing them is something you can handle on your own. Testing and fixing the fan Steps: 1. Test the fan motor. While the machine is plugged in and full of water, turn both the humidistat knob and fan-control knob to high. If the fan hums but does not turn, or turns slowly, the motor needs to be replaced. If the fan won't move, you may have a bad switch somewhere. Call a professional. 2. To replace a bad fan motor, unplug the machine and disconnect the fan wires from the switch panel. You may have to pry apart a plug, use needle-nose pliers to pull the connectors off the switch, or unscrew the connectors. 3. Remove the old motor from its housing, using a Phillips screwdriver or a nut driver and socket. 4. Remove the fan blade from the motor. Use adjustable pliers to open the spring clamp at the center of the fan blade, and then slip the clamp off. Use a flathead screwdriver to gently pry off the blade, then set it aside. 5. Take the motor to an appliance store to buy a replacement. 6. Install the fan blade on the new motor, then install the motor and reattach the wires. Testing and fixing the float assembly Steps: 1. Locate the empty tank float assembly. This assembly consists of a switch, a connecting rod (on some units) and some type of float. It's supposed to shut down the machine when the water reservoir is low, but if the float jams in the down position, the dehumidifier won't turn on. 2. Check the float and connecting rod, if there is one. If the parts are bent and touching the cabinet, use gentle hand pressure to straighten them so they move freely. If your dehumidifier has a float switch that is triggered by the filter housing moving up and down, make sure the housing is centered in its tracks and moves freely. Clean any debris and dirt out of the channels, using a scrub brush. 3. Check that the float connecting rod is contacting the float switch. If it isn't, bend the end of the rod so it touches the switch.
