I have a Carrier model 58WAV136-16 furnace. It has a humidifier attachment,
and it seems that it is not sending any power to the solenoid that turns it
Does anyone know what conditions have to exist (that I haven't thought of)
to flip the humidifier on? Things that I have thought of:
1. The fan has to be going
2. The humidistat needs to be set high enough to trip
Anything else? I opened the panel and checked the DC output of the
humidifier port and there is nothing coming out of it.
Also, some can be wired so that they go on when the furnace burner is
activated, instead of the blower. That's how mine is set up, which I
think has the advantage that after the burner shuts off, the humidifier
does too, so the remaing few minutes of blower time can dry out the
media. Plus I don't have to worry about turning it off during cooling
