    I'll take a guess. The RH is too high for it to come on. That's why it only works in test mode. Wait till the house gets drier.

    I don't recall one ever being damaged by not being level. I've seen some that were off by a couple inches on one side. Just looks bad when not level though. Being level or close is best.

    You could also do it with a timer and relay. Not a big deal if you didn't want to change thermostats. I've got that function on my thermostats but never use it.

    Can't help you. No DIY. You can change solenoids till the cows come home but that won't fix the low voltage problem. You'll need to call a service co.
