The humidifier and it's tubing may be clogged with calcium deposits and scale. Especially so, if you're using well water or your city's water has high calcium deposits.

Empty whatever water is in the unit and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes and then turn the unit ON. Once you feel moisture coming out, allow it to run anoter 10 minutes or so. Then turn the unit OFF and empty the remaining solution (if any is left). Now, flush the system by filling it with Bottled Distilled Water and running it.

For future use, I'd recommend that you use nothing but, Bottled Distilled Water.

We noticed the humidity went down to 30% and I adjusted the rate to increase Now our Aprilaire 400 says to change the filter. I did that, and it still says to change the filter. The furnace runs fine....


If your humidifier is equipped with a Digital Humidifier Control with Water

Panel change indicator, after replacing the Water Panel, turn the control

knob to the "Test/Reset" position until the "Humidifier On" light blinks to

reset its timer. (Blower must be operating and HVAC calling for heat.) Be sure

to turn the control knob back to it's original setting. If the "Humidifier On"

light continues to blink, your humidifier is in Test mode. DO NOT LEAVE THE
CONTROL IN TEST MODE OR HUMIDIFIER WILL NOT OPERATE.

I replaced the water panel on our aprilaire 600 humidifier. I adjusted the thermostat to call for heat to test it. When the dial (non-digital control panel for the humidifier) is turned to test/reset,...


Thank you for contacting us with regards to your model 600 Humidifier. The Change Water Panel indicator should flash when the control knob is set to the Test/Reset mode. The flashing indicates that the timer has been successfully reset. However, the humidifier should operate for the first 60 seconds of Test mode as long as your furnace is running. If your humidifier does not turn on, contact your installer. The humidifier may require service.
We appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance.
Sincerely,

How to change from summer to winter


Can you give a little more info? Usually depending on where you live, people use de-humidifiers in the summer and humidifiers in the winter. If you need a humidifier year around, there should be nothing you need to do uther than filter cleaning and checking the water valve and cleaning the pan of mineral deposits. Depending on your water, you might need to pour a cup of limeaway in your pan and let it run for a couple hours. Then drain it, flush it, and let it keep running.

Moisture not coming out


i realize this answer is a year old; but, i would guess you didn't let the wick become saturated before running. fill the resevoir with water, then let the humidifier sit idle while the wick is saturating. when it is completely saturated, the refill light will go off. refill the resevoir with additional water, as needed. then you can run the humidifier.
