I need some help figuring out how to wire my humidifier to my ecobee3. I've tried ecobee support a few times with no luck. My setup is as follows:
My humidifier used to be hooked up to a manual humidistat dial. One wire of the Solenoid was hooked up to the humidistat and from the humidistat to a Goodman pressure switch in my furnace. The other wire from the solenoid was hooked up to a bolt in the furnace (like a grounding bolt). My humidifier worked this way. I would set the dial to a humidity level and the humidifier would kick on when the heat ran.
I now have my humidifier hooked up as follows (told to me by ecobee support). My ecobee3 ACC+ terminal is wired directly to one side of my humidifier's solenoid. The other wire from my solenoid is hooked straight to my furnace's C terminal. My humidifier is not turning on, even though the ecobee3 says the humidifier is running. I told my ecobee3 the humidifier is an evaporative, 1 wire setup. I set the ecobee setting humidifier to "on" and set the humidity level to 50%, just to try it out. Nothing is happening, the solenoid isn't sending any water.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Did I blow the solenoid after having it hooked up differently for a bit? Thanks in advance!
