Hi, I'm Jay. This is an Aprilaire humidifier, and today we are going to diagnose why there is water continously running down the drain, even when we try to turn the humidifier off. 

 

Ok, now we have a situation where we have water that is continuing to go down the humidifier. And it won't shut off, so what we're going to do is disconnect one of these wires, and what we have to do is disconnect just one. That will kill the electricty to the solenoid valve, and it should close. So, we'll disconnect this one wire carefully. Alright, the wire is disconnected, we now have no electricity to the solenoid valve, so at this point the water should shut off. But as I can see right now, the water is staying on, so our problem is the solenoid valve is stuck open. That's a common failure, these valves are easy to replace. A couple of screws, get your wrenches out, disconnect the water lines, reconnect them back up. Of course you'll want to turn off the water and electrical. But it's a simple job to do.
