Hello, first thing is check is the strainer going into the solenoid valve for sediment, if there is clean the strainer and reinstall. If the strainer in clean the check if you are getting 24 volts to the solenoid valve, if you have voltage and the solenoid does not let the water thru replace the solenod valve.

Did you check the orifice inside the supply water tube? Sometimes the orifice can come loose and allow to much water inside the humidifier.

Frequent knocking noise coming from General Aire 1042 LH humidifier


Hello, it depends where the sound is coming from,if it's in the supply water line it could be caused by water hamer or the inlet side of the solenoid valve might be clogged up with sediment. Water hammer is when the solenoid closes under high water pressure and a water hammer arresters should be installed. If the sound is coming directly from the solenoid valve and is more of a chattering sound then there is a loose low voltage wire or the solenoid is going bad. If you disconnect the power to the solenoid and the chattering stops then solenoid must be replaced as it is the cause of the noise.

Wiring a generalaire 1042 humidifier to a goodman furnace,when there are no terminals marked hum


24 VAC HUM
The yellow wire connected to the I.D. Blower pressure switch
is powered anytime the pressure switch is closed and provides
24 VAC humidifier control. Remove the yellow wire and connect
the supplied brown jumper wire to the pressure switch
terminal. Reconnect the yellow wire to the "piggyback" terminal
on the brown jumper and then connect the 24 VAC line of the
humidifier to the stripped end of the brown wire. Using a wire
nut or a field-supplied quick connect terminal can make this
connection. The wiring must conform to all local and national
codes. Connect the COM side of the humidifier to the B/C
terminal on the furnace control board (or to the COM side of
the 24 VAC transformer). DO NOT CONNECT 115V HUMIDIFIER
TO THESE TERMINALS.

General Humidifier Model 1042-L leaking water


Check the bottom of drain tube (tube connected to the bottom center of the bottom tray). Does water freely flow out the tube when the humdifier water feed is on?

If there is no flow from the tube and water is leaking from the bottom tray when the humidifier water feed is on then the tube or bottom tray is clogged with hardwater minerals or other material.

If the unit has not been used in a while it's possible a spider has take up residence by spinning a web in the bottom tray or tube.

The last poissible reason is the tray is cracked. You may order the tray from multiple sources on the web. Simply shop for model and price.
