My Aprilaire humidifier solenoid clicks on and off repeatedly. Unit is a 560 with an automatic control (106K17 ???) with outside temp capability. How do I fix?
Replace the solenoid but sometimes you can clean them

Rick, sorry for the delay in responding i've had to place a shut off valve between the supply line and the unit so that i don't have to shut off the whole house. Back to the issue; how would you recommend cleaning the solenoid???

Take off the unit and there is a orfice that gets clogged clean with pin
