    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lots of defects with this product Problem #1 - Connecting the supply water tubing to the plastic valve. We could not connect the brass nut to the cheap plastic valve without stripping threads. We checked the tubing from the valve (installed at the factory) and found that Figure 14 of the installation guide shows the plastic ferrule backwards. Problem #2 - The green LED lit, but the plastic valve would not open and deliver water to the humidifier pad. Problem #3 - Home Depot relaced the solenoid and valve but with the new one the green LED does not even light to open the water supply valve (after 15 minutes of furnace operation). The red LED indicates the unit has power so that is not the issue. The humidifier is not working.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced older Wait 5000 with this one. I bought this with hesitation (due to reviews) to replace an older Wait 5000 that I have had for a long time. The cut-out is a little bigger and the controls are on the side (exposed) now instead of on the head (covered). The over-all design is a little better compared to the older model 5000. It also operates differently than the previous model. It doesn't automatically kick-in when your furnace starts. It has a sensor that determines if your furnace is heating or cooling (A/C), then it starts after a minute or so if it sensed a change in heat (not cooling). This is explained in the instructions. Not sure if the previous reviewers read this in the install manual. Overall it works better than my last one and I would recommend it to people who read instructions.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap.... with reason. Bought this as it closely resembled the humidifier in my previous home and it was on sale. Not sure if it was the same model I owned before. Installed easy enough. Unit is pretty poorly built, cover does not seal very well and is held on by only one plastic screw. Does not flow water when installed as per instructions. Trouble shooting guide directs you to 5 different DIP switch settings. the last requires you to purchase a pressure switch from the manufacturer. Ultimately I got it to work by wiring it into my furnace humidifier control. Furnaces built in this century have this option, the instructions should include this option. Overall I would have rather spent more money for a better built unit. Already cut holes in duct work for this thing so return is not an option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fixed the problem After calling support on the product the tech guy said to check the upper tube, The brass connector gets clogged up. Mine was sealed shut. I drilled it out with a 3/64 bit and the water flows fine now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed Yes it was easy to install and I gave it time to work but after a few weeks there is no water flow to the unit. I have tried the troubleshooting manual, reset the switches and checked all possible sources. The solenoid clicks on and off immediately despite all the various configurations. I shouldn't have to buy a pressure switch in an attempt to remedy the problem. Would I buy another one? Not on your life. I am very sorry that I didn't heed the others' advice.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expect issues if you have a newer furnace The sensor in the humidifier turns the water on when it senses a temperature change - it has to increase at more than 4 C/minute and be above 30 C. This works fine with an older single stage furnace that preheats and then turns the fan on full at power. With a two stage furnace with a variable speed blower, the temperature increase may be too gradual to turn the unit on. In that case, you will have to call the company to get an additional sensor to work around the problem. So the unit can be made to work, but the manufacturer should either modify the product so it works reliably with the newer furnaces, or acknowledge the issue on the box and in the installation manual.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Does Not Work This product does not work. I have a high efficency furnance and the humidifier needs a pressure sensor which you can order from AirKing for $30 if you can get through on the help line. They do not tell you this on the outside packaging of the product. When I finally got through after 2 days of trying, the help representative was arrogant and wanted me to mail her a copy of my sales receipt as proof of purchase. It is unfair to customers to make them buy an extra $30 part. It seems that the need for the pressure sensor is a common problem. This was not a guarantee either that it would work. I was also dissapointed in the quality of construction (I bought the Wait 5000 to replace an existing Wait humidifier which was much better constructed). I will be returning this model and purchasing a different brand.

    Water running even with the unit off and unplugged

    I have Air king wait 5000 Humidifire Installed but water is not stopping after funnace cycle is off even unplugged.

    I see that this is an old post but if you have this problem it's the solenoid that is defective. Alot of people who don't check it on a regular basis can waist a lot of water!!! I took mine apart to see if it was just a hard water problem but the brass seat for the stop plunger was chewed up. If you have the ability to install the humidifier you can replace this part. $55.

    What settings are thoughs little numbers 1,2,3 on the solenoid supposed to be set at?

    I moved those tiny numbered switches by mistake, i need to know how to re set them.

    You need to consult the installation manuel. There are 3 different settings you need to follow the step by step guide to change the settings.

    WATER IS DRIPPING FROM THE DRAIN HOLE AT THE BOTTOM. I HAVE CHANGED THE FILTER AND TRIED ADJUSTING THE FLOW OF WATER BUT DOES NO HELP?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The drain on this unit is really finicky. I had the same problem. Make sure there are no (even slight) "uphill" runs or areas where the water has to be "pushed". The drain system has to be completely free and open.

    Are parts available for the electomagnetic valve?

    My unit is about 3 years old and the water valve does not always open to allow the flow of water. Can I buy parts for this humidifier? I live in Edmonton Alberta Canada.

    The part that you will need is a solenoid and you can order the part at http://www.airkinglimited.com/canadian/pages/buildprod/furnhummain1.html and click on "Parts Department" at the bottom of the page. I hope this helps.
