The solenoid that turns on the water to the unit should not change the water flow, so you should get the same amount of water that flows into the solenoid. If you want less water, you can partially close the valve at the water source.
I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.

humidifiers have a drain and if there is water going in it will be coming out the drain. check drain to see if it is clear, check hoses going into top of humidifier for cracks, check filter in humidifier.
Hello, usually this is a sign of a drain problem or the water is entering the humidifier too fast. If the water is not draining at the end of the drain line something is preventing the water from flowing. I would also make sure that there is no heavy mineral buildup on the water panel pad this can cause water to leak out of the humidifier. Lastly check to make sure there is a orifice inside the supply water tubing leaving the solenoid, if not this causes the water to enter the humidifier too fast.
Put the humidifier number, not the solenoid number, into Google or directly at www.appliancefactoryparts.com . They show a breakdown of the humidifier and let you order replacement parts. I've just ordered the solenoid assembly, which they say is in stock.
I have same problem with no water flow on identical humidifier but was able to fix it. Removed the inlet to the solenoid valve and found (1) a small taper mesh filter inside (2) a small diameter orifice that was clogged. Cleaned the miniature filter and used a sewing needle to open the orifice and now works perfectly.
If the unit was installed with a saddle valve, which is most often the case, you could try turning down the water pressure by tightening the valve a bit. Just follow the copper water line from the humidifier back to the main water line and look for a little valve that you can turn. Try to tighten this enough so that you still have water flowing, but at the proper volume so that it doesn't overflow and splash all over.
