solenoid valve staying open-honeywell he265a1007

Just bought a foreclosure that is about 5 yrs old. The solenoid valve is staying open even when the furnace is off. I tried cleaning in a water/clr solution with no luck. Is the valve stuck open, or maybe a problem w/ wiring or maybe humidistat? We are on city water so we are just running $$$ down the drain, literally. Any suggestions?

I don't know much about humidifiers but there should be a shutoff valve for the water supply to it until you can get it fixed.

remove the wiring from the solenoid valve and if the water still flows then it is time for a new solenoid valve. if this shuts it off then you may have a bad relay or another problem.
