I'm having trouble completing a series circuit, on my furnace mounted humidifier.
The following is what I have connected: From the 24v. transformer to the stat. From the stat to the solenoid on the humidifier. The humidifier diagram shows that the other side of the solenoid goes to what they call a sensing relay for the motor.
The furnace wiring diagram shows a (humid contact) on control board which is 110 volt. How can I complete this 24 volt circuit? If I can, I will send a picture of the furnace control board.

Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.

If you have a terminal on board that puts out 120 volts with a call for heat, use these terminals to power a humidifier 24 volt transformer, then run that through the humidistat, out again, to one side of the solenoid. The other side of transformer will go directly to the other lead on solenoid.
