Aprilaire 600 humidifier - Doesn't seem to be working
I've checked several troubleshooting videos and have thus far confirmed that; 1) The water feed into the solenoid valve is a steady stream 2) there is 24 volt of electricity to the solenoid, as confirmed by my brother in-law electrician, 3) I have replaced the solenoid valve and do have water that occasionally drips water, 4) I have a new water panel
How fast should the water be coming out of the tube that feeds into the humidifier water distribution tray (sits atop the water panel)?
Is that about right?
My next problem, it doesn't seem to consistently drip. It was dripping for a good 2-3 minutes while I was getting a bucket and a phone to record the video. After I stopped recording, I noticed that it no longer dripped, but furnace was still on and humidity level was at 27% and the humidistat was set to 45. I had checked a few times before and it had always dripped, but I didn't watch for long.
The water distribution tray felt moist when I checked it, prior to recording the video.
The water panel always feels dry. I even tried spray 250 ml of water onto the panel, to see if it would raise the humidity in the house. The panel still felt kind of dry after spraying and humidity only went up 1%
I have a manual humidistat (has a dial). Could this be the problem?
