Honeywell humidifier- testing after installation

Hello Everyone!

Just installed Honeywell HE 360A humidifier 1 week ago. How do I verify that the wiring was done correctly and that the humidifier is operating properly? Not sure if it matters but I installed the humidistat in my living room. I wired like this:
Attachment 44381

This is what I've done so far:
1. Turned on the humidifier power and water supply
2. Turned the humidistat to its highest setting. All the way to 60.
3. Set the thermostat to 10F above the room temperature. From 68-78 degrees

RESULTS:
I observed water running out of the drain line and onto the drain floor only once. Should water run everytime the furnace goes on?

I reset my thermostat back to 68 degrees and the humidistat to 40.

Its been almost 1 week and the humidity level in my living room is around 35. Shouldn't it be 40 since my humidistat is set to 40???

Can anyone please give me some pointers?

Welcome to the forums.

Your wiring link is not working.
The humidistats aren't always that accurate. Did you try setting it for maximum humidity ?

Hi Pete,

Happy New Year. Can you expand on
Your wiring link is not correct
? You mean you could not access incorrect link or the wiring is incorrect?
I basically followed Fig. 12 on this pdf manual.

Also, does anyone know how much water this thing consumes? I read somewhere it takes around 18 gallons/day...that would be insane if true.

Thanks

I clarified my statement. Your link itself wasn't working. I re-posted the wiring diagram. It's pretty basic and forms a closed loop. When the blower is running and you turn the humidity to max. you should hear the water run. If not.... try temporarily bypassing the sail or pressure switch.

It delivers up to 18 gallons of water, as moisture, into the air. The amount of water that gets drained isn't posted. It may be over 18 gallons. My humidifier seems to drain an excessive amount of water.

This morning I noticed that I have a water leak in the front panel
I haven't had a chance to open it and see what's going on yet but has anyone ever had this issue on a new system? Could it be the SOLENOID VALVE?

I doubt the valve. Possibly media not sitting flat in the tray or a shift in the water distribution pan. Also check for clogged/kinked drain line.
