Humidistat Not Tripping Humidifier Solenoid
Results 1 to 2 of 2

    I have an Aprilaire 440 bypass humidistat controlled by an Aprilaire 56 automatic humidistat. The humidistat is wired to my furnace heat terminals (white/common) and is confirmed to be getting 24VAC.

    My problem is that the humidistat is not tripping the humidifier water valve solenoid, even in test mode. Specifically, the humidistat is outputting about 20VAC to the solenoid and the solenoid is receiving about 0.1A but does not switch on. This is lower current than I would expect, but having replaced both the humidistat and the relay with no change in condition, I'm not sure what to do next.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance in this matter.

    Regards,

    Chip Zaenglein
