Clogged Line
 
I have a Wait 5000 humidifier installed about 2 years ago. I am not getting anywater into the humidifier. The water is still flowing from the connection at the pipe, but not on to filter. Is the line clogged somewhere, is there a way to fix it. Or is it not being pumped in.

Were the feeding tub from the valve to the pad. You need to undo that nut and remove that feeding tub. You will see a small orfice with a hole. You need get something to clean out that hole. Its very small I use a wire brush to clean i out or just remove it really its no need for it. Even with that thing off you can do a quick shot of on to see water is coming out.

I agree, the water regulating orfice may be plugged, it will be located in the water line on the backside of the solenoid valve. Do not increase the size of the hole and do not remove the orfice or your humidifier will receive more water than necessary and could flood the humidifier. First I would turn up the humidistat and check for voltage at the solenoid . If you hear the solenoid click when humidity is called for turn off the water feed and check the screen at the water inlet. You will probably find the problem doing these checks.

I always remove them if you have to clean tha out every year or twice a year. You can just lower the water from the water valve.
