How much water gal/hr is reasonable to expect from the furnace humidifier overflow in "0 degree" farenheit outside to heat a 1500 square foot normal midwestern house to 72 degrees inside having a norm


There is no flow rating because it would depend on too many factors. What you do need to check is the float valve. The water valve is opening and closing like it should be but the reservoir is filling too much.

My furnace is leaking when the air is on and the motor in the autoflo 800 humidifier is bad. Could this be the problem?


Hello, the motor itself wont cause the unit to leak water, the float valve on the unit is what adjusts how much water is coming into the humidifier. If the float valve is not adjusted properly or broken it will cause to much water to enter the humidifierand therefrore overflow. Replace the motor and chexk the float valve to enure it is adjusted properly and if it is stuck or broken replace.

We have a kenmore humidifier on the furance model # 48945. it doesn't stop running so our water bill is twice what it should be. I've tried to find a manuel on line so i can figure out how to...


Noodles, it sounds like the float valve inside the water reservoir is stuck in the down position. Turn the water line ON/OFF valve to the humidifier OFF. Open the top of the reservoir and you will see the float valve. Gently, lift it up, to see if it will remain at the top of the water level, which left in the reservoir. It it doesn't, then the float needs to be replaced. In the mean time, leave the water line ON/OFF Valve OFF.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The hot water in our Aprilaire 440 is running constantly through the filter and down into the sump pump. It continues to run even when the furnace is off.


The automatic shutoff switch from the furnace to the humidifier has probably gone bad and will need to be replaced. However If the humidifier has a float valve in it like a toilet tank, it may be hung in the open position,which allows the water to continually run. Take the top of the humidifier and check the float valve's operation. It may simply need cleaning.

My desert springs humidifier doesn't work. I suspect that it's about 6 or 7 years old. The furnace is still running and I've tried all solutions that seem obvious to me. Is it possible that the motor has...


Well, let's see what service the unit has had in its 6 or 7 years of working--

When was the Humidifying pad last changed?
These usually have to be changed every year-- to get good performance from the humidifier...
So-- Have you looked inside the large door?-- what does the pad look like?

When the furnace is running, you should be able to open the humidifier door, and look in, (Air should be sucking INTO the door as you open it, if the unit is properly mounted in the return air duct work..) and if the humidistat is calling -- the motor should be turning the big wheel, and moisture is being added, as the wet surface is exposed to the air returning to the furnace. What do you see?

There is also a water sump, filled by a float valve-- is that valve admitting water into the sump?
Is the pad wicking up this water, and rotating into the air stream?

That pad is easily changed-- your hard ware store probably has replacement pads-- they can be sewn back on to the wheel, after removing the old one.

Let us know if we can help further-

No water going to furnace humidifier


The furnace should be equipped with a #50 relay to turn the Humidifier on and off when only when the furnace blower is on. You should have a test mode on your humidistat. Do you have water coming up to the solenoid valve? Make sure that the saddle valve is turned on to supply the water to the humidifier. Is your humidistat set high enough to turn the humidifier on? Is it plugged in?
