Kwh is kilowatt hours. it is a function of the electric meter to take the amperes and the voltage and multiply them together to give total watts. this figure is again multiplied by one thousand to get killowatts. a killowatt hr is 1000 watts times 60 minutes.

Only one fan working

There are two causes of your problems:
1. The fan needs you to manually turn it to start running.
Problem: The motor bearings both ends are dried out.
1. Remove the motor/fan from the motor housing (there are two screws that hold the motor to the housing. The only way I know how to get to the screw is to bend one of the fan blade up and use a long screw driver to get to the screws.
2. Remove the two screws that hold the bearings to the motor.
3. Detach the bottom bearing (opposite of the fan end.) You might have to use a flat screw driver to pry the bearing off.
4. Use a Q-tip and soak it with motor oil or grease then lubri- cate the fan end shaft/bearing.
5. Use a Q-tip + alcohol to clean up the bottom bearing hole, then lubricate it with grease or motor oil.
6. Put the motor and bearings back together and make sure that the fan can turn freely now.
7. Install the motor/fan back into it housing.
The fan should turn on its own without you helping it.
If the fan won't turn, you have a bigger problem. See below.

2. The fan won't turn at all and is really tight even when you try to
turn it by hand.
Problem: The transformer coil(s) is/are burnt out. Chances are you let the fan run dry to a point that it squealed and started to smell like it was burning before it quit all together.
Solution 1:
1. Remove the filters and their housing on the bad fan side.
2. Duct tape a piece of plastic over the bad fan opening.
3. Run the humidifier with one fan. It works just as well.

Solution 2:
1. Buy a new humidifier.
2. Make sure you lubricate the bearings as soon as the motor begins to squeal.

Solution 3: You need knowledge of electricity
1. Take the motor/fan out from the housing.
2. Use a vote meter to check the resistance in both coil of the transformer; should read about 17 ohms. The coil(s) that has a high reading or if the meter shows 'OL' is bad. Remove the Yellow tape from the coil to see if you have a loose soldering joint between the coil wiring the electrical cord. If yes, solder the joint back together, check the resistance again to make sure you have about 17 ohms. If the answer is yes, put the yellow tape back on the coil and use electrical tape to secure the tape. Hopefully, the fan should work now. Good luck!

Service light on Honeywell humidifier

Sounds like a Water Level Sensor problem. Read the service manual, pages 51 and 53.

Unplug the power cord. Turn OFF water. Remove the Water Level Sensor - One screw holds down the spring clip. Remove water scale in the compartment and on the Sensor. Test Sensor with an ohm meter. If OK, reassemble and try again. If bad, replace the sensor.

If you have heavy scale buildup in the sensor compartment, you need better water filtration. Your problems are just starting. This system can be very difficult to clean thoroughly.

I just bought this product and the filter meter still reads at the mid point of good and change. Did I get a faulty product? Also, it is normal not to feel or see any mist coming out of the humidifier?

No, it's not normal not to feel or see any mist coming out. Depending on your home's water supply may have presented the problem. Especially if it's well water ... to many minerals. Which will clog the filter. Or your city water supply may be the same.

In any event, I would suggest buying and installing a new filter and using Bottled Distilled water instead. It's inexpensive ... about $1.00 per gallon.

If that doesn't solve your problem, return the unit under within the Warranty Period for replacement of repair.

No humidity in the house

Hello, the first to confirm is if you are receiving 24 volts at the transformer, if you are then check for 24 volts going into the humidistat and out of the humidistat, if voltage is confirmed there then check if your solenoid is recieving 24 volts, if it is and the solenoid is not letting water into the humidifier than your solenoid is bad and must be replaced. If you do not have 24 volts at the transformer then turn off power to the transformer and set your meter to read continuity, you should have resistance if not the transformer is bad and must be replaced. If you have power to the humidifier and not humidifieing properly then you have to set the humidistat according to what the outdoor temp is, the outside temp determines what setting and % of humidity you should have in your home. Here is a what it should be
-20 set to 15%
-10 set to 20%
0 set to 25%
10 set to 30%
20 set to 35%
above 30 set to 40%

Unit is less than a year old and the water does not seem to be entering the unit. the valve is all the way on and nothing is dripping out of the condensation line. Any ideas?

Check to see if your solenoid valve is receiving 24 volts by using a multimeter and putting each meter lead to each of the incoming wires to the solenoid valve, if you are getting 24 volts and the valve wont open replace the solenoid valve. If you are not getting 24 volts then Start at the transformer and see if you are getting 24 volts there, if you are then the problem is either loose wiring or the humidistat or sailswitch/current sensing relay is bad. If you are not getting 24 volts at the transformer then turn off power to the transformer and set your meter to read continuity, then take your meter and check the secondary side of the transformer for continuity, if none is read then replace the transformer.

Solenoid valve will not shut when the furnace is off

Most likely you have crud buildup in the solenoid valve. But first make sure that you test accross the solenoid connections for voltage when the furnace is OFF. Put your meter to AC volts and see if you see 24 Volts when furnace is ON and 0 Volts when furnace is OFF. If you get those readings then you need to replace your solenoid valve.
Available from mfg for about $55-60
or on ebay for about $40 shipped.
search for Aprilaire 4040 Solenoid

If the above tests fail, you will need to ensure that the wiring is correct and not shorted, but is probably your valve. Install a fridge water filter in the water line to help prevent this in the future.

When calling for heat and humidity I have 24v at the brown wires going to my Aprilaire, but the solenoid doesn't pick. Is it the control card or solenoid? Both are mounted on the Aprilaire unit. I have a...

If you have 24 volts to the solenoid, then it's not the control card. It's either the solenoid or there's an orifice in the water line at the solenoid that sometimes stops up. To check the solenoid you need to disconnect the power to the system and disconnect the solenoid wires (the two brown wires) and ohm the solenoid. If you get a low ohm reading around 50 ohms or then the solenoid is good and you need to check the orifice. If the ohm meter doesn't move when you ohm across both leads then it's the solenoid and it needs replaced.

Dehumidifier - hot compressor / coils not cold

If the compressor's running and it's getting hot and the coil isn't getting cold, then you are probably low on refrigerant or your txv or metering device isn't working.
