If the troubleshooting guide that Kimi submitted here http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=101224&prdid=126410
Did you no good, i suggest you take the Humidifier to be serviced, or back to the shop if you're still under warranty. I dont think there's any more to do without professional equipment and knowledge.
But if you can, do try to follow his suggestions.

I would say, either the humidity level in the room is hi or the humidifier is defective, In my house the humidity is about 42% to 45% when we use the humidifier, and can drop to 30% or less if we don't, we leave in DC area,
I hope this helps.
i know why. clean the small long tubular thing that is sucking the water. put a q tip in there and get the gunk out. thats what you need to do -- try it and let me know if it worked. [email protected] it worked for me!
The higher the % of RH, (relative humidity), the more humid the house will be. I would disregard the temp part of the dial, and focus more on your comfort. Adjust it up daily until you reach a satisfactory humidity level. Hope this helps
Hi, Hot will make the problem worse. If your calcium is that high you will have scale in your tubs, sinks and toilets. Calcium is a pipe clogger and if you have noticed this type of scaling you may be wise to consider a whole house water filtration system, it will save you lots of problems in the long run. Good Luck!
have you checked the damper ? is the motor running the right direction ? have you increased the water supply to it ? you need to be sure that it is coming on only when you have a call for heat, normally your humidistat should be installed near the return, or on the return duct, for proper sensing, you could try holding a pan of steaming water, placing the stat above it, not to close, to see if the stat shuts off the hum, a little trick, that way you will know if the stat works ok, hope these helped, thanks for the question, mr.grzz
first break or loosen the water line connection at the humidifier and if you get water then you know it is something else. While the heat is running and main blower is also running, turn the humidistat from low to high; if you hear a click in the solenoid valve (where you checked the water) then you know it has power and the humidistat works. anything deyond that call a good contractor.
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.
Sounds as if you feel the problem is the saddle valve. Check to see if water is available at the humidifier. Close the saddle valve, disconnect the water line at the humidifier side, then slowly turn the saddle valve back on. If you never see water, then correct the saddle valve.

If you are getting water, but dont think that the unit is operating try sending 24VAC directly to the hunidifier and see if it operates, bypass the humidistat etc.
