Flashing lights on my Aprilaire humidifier control...what to do?

Thursday, July 28, 2011 by Aprilaire Team
Consumer question:

We had an Aprilaire humidifier installed several years ago. The business that installed it is no longer around, the company that services our HVAC needs is not too familiar with these products. Last winter I replaced the filter (as I do every year - in December) and it was running fine....obviously, it does not run during the summer, but the "Replace Water Panel" and "Call Dealer for Service" lights have been flashing for awhile now...should I be concerned about this? It's turned to "off" and when I reset it and turn it back to "off" the lights continue to flash. I'm not sure of the exact model...from the pictures on the replacement filter packaging I can see it's in the 700's. Thanks for your help!

Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us regarding the change water panel light on your humidifier control. This light is nothing to be concerned about. It is simply a reminder to change the water panel after a pre-determined amount of run time and has no effect on the operation of the humidifier. Once reset, the internal clock will reset and not turn on the light again until the next time the time limit is reached.

To reset the light, please refer to the attached document for step by step instructions.

I had the change water panel light on and I changed the water panel and reset it. Now I don't remember the "humidifier on" green light is not coming on. Is it OK?

Dear Joyce,

Thank you for contacting us regarding the flashing lights on your humidifier control. These lights will flash if the control dial is left in test/reset for more than one minute. Simply turn it back to your humidity setting and the lights will stop flashing.
