Had never done this service before. Was able to locate the float valve assembly and float ball quickly. Shipping was quick. Installation went great.
DIY Float Valve by George Bond (HENDERSONVILLE NC US)
This year's HVAC fall tune-up found the float valve rusted and inoperative. My supplier would have fixed it for probably $70 in parts and $120 in labor. I took a look at the broken unit and thought that if I couldn't swap out a very simple valve with a pair of small crescent wrenches than I wasn't much of a home handyman. I ordered the parts from humidifyerpartsdirect.com and they arrived in short order. The actual installation took all of 5 minutes BUT, the float level had to be set if the factory setting was not accurate. In theory you needed to level the unit on your workbench, hook it up to a water source and then bend the rod ala the old toilet bowl float technique. I didn't have water at my bench but instead attached a piece of plastic tubing and blew through it as I poured water from a pitcher into the pan. When the float valve shut off my air I measured the water level. Turns out that the float was not correctly set at the factory but was easily set with the bending technique we have all used to set the toilet float. So.... 5 minutes to set the level, 5 minutes to install the float assembly and another 5 minutes to re-install the unit on the furnace plenum. I don't have the invoice in front of me but recall it to have been about $35 so I saved $155 with 15 minutes of work. If you are a basic home handyman there is no reason not to do this job yourself. After all, even if you screw it up, you can always call your HVAC guys and let them finish the job!

It worksq by Norman Kahn (Madison Heights VA )
Got tired of trying to fix the problem with overflowing of the water chamber. Knew it was the float or the valve. Found out it was the float. Ordered both parts before I took it apart. New float bowl assembly works as it should. Old one does, too, so I guess I have spare parts.
