Model 800 Aprilaire steam humidifire I have

Model 800 Aprilaire steam humidifire I have installed an aprilaire humidifier and its time for the low voltage wiring. I am trying to wire the humidifier so just the blower comes on when there is a call for humidity. I am not using the duct mounted humidistat I am using a thermostat to sense humidity. There are 2 terminals on the thermostat for humidity and also 2 therminals on the humidifie for low voltage. So if i go from the thermostat to the furnace to R and G to the humidifire will that work? If so then will i need a relay so when the the furnace calls for heat and humidifer is running it wont short or burn somthing out?

Is this a newly installed unit it sounds as if there's a wiring issue. Could you show a picture of the wiring terminals. If this is not a new install try turning of your furnace fan.

On my Aprilaire 560 humidifier it says to replace water panel evaporator annually. Are there any documented instructions on how to do this?

Aprilaire 700. It works on fan on mode but not otherwise. It's never on and the humidity reading is always way below the setting. It should turn on automatically to bring the humidity up, right?


It appears your Aprilaire model 700 is wired to only operate when your HVAC fan is operated by your thermostat. Your HVAC installer can wire the humidifier control to operate the humidifier during a heat call, fan call or to turn on the fan when there is a need for humidification. Please contact your HVAC installer to have them change the wiring.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service
