Description for Honeywell 50027997-001

Honeywell solenoid water valve 50027997-001 assembly for all TrueSteam models.

This valve contains two solenoid valves. Both valves operate on 120 vac and can be tested by unpluging it from the humidifer and connecting power from an external 120v source.

One solenoid controls filling the water tank. This valve is normally closed when no power is present. The inlet for this valve has a SpeedFit push-in fitting. The plastic water line just needs to be pushed in to this line.

The second solenoid controls draining tank. This valve is normally closed when no power is applied. This valve also connects to the tank overflow hose that always provides an open path to the drain.

[...] You'll know the solenoid valve needs to be replaced by following the directions that came with the humidifier unit. After you have tried everything else on the list, and the blinking light still blinks at a certain rate (I think it was 3 red blinks and then pause, but it's been a while now, so don't quote me on the number of blinks) tells you that the since you tried everything else, the solenoid valve needs to be replaced. Getting the Humidifier off the duct was the hard part (took me 20 minutes, should take you <2 min). The directions that come with the solenoid valve are okay, but it's easy to see where this product connects when you take the replacement off. Aside from getting the humidifier off the duct, replacement probably took 15 minutes. I saved over $330 by doing it myself instead of having an HVAC person come out (actual quote). The solenoid valve continues to function properly, now 4 weeks later.

I heard the valve operate one time and that was it. I am not sure if it is the Tru Steam unit or the valve that is operating improperly and really no way to find out. Luckily the unit still works effectively so I will forego the auto function. I figured it was worth a shot. The installation manual suggested the replacement but evidently I have another issue.

Comments about Solenoid Valve For TrueSTEAM:

My solenoid was leaking on the drain side. It trickled all the time there was water in the tank. I followed the instructions that came with the replacement valve, and that come with each replacement scale filter, and it was not difficult.

Comments about Solenoid Valve For TrueSTEAM:

This was the other troubleshooting solution to the 6 blink error code and looked more complicated than changing out the water level sensor. I changed out the sensor and the blinking stopped. I retained this piece as a back up and have not had to use it yet.

Comments about Solenoid Valve For TrueSTEAM:

Replacement installed easily and worked however I found out it was not the solenoid valve it was the circuitboard of the TruSteam that was not working properly.
I ordered the valve because all literature pointed to a faulty Solenoid Valve.
Do one other check first.

YOU ARE PLAYING WITH LIVE CURRENT, best is to ask your certified contractor to try this.

Unplug Trusteam for 1 min, Set Humidifier to ask for more humidification, Plug TrueSteam in.
When Humidifier Light is flashing green,
Unplug Solenoid Valve Harness from Circuit-board and feed 110V directly into the Harness, use the Red and white wire of the harness ( this will open the fill valve, Black and White will open the dump valve).
If this works, the tank will fill and the green light will come on Steady. Disconnect the power from the harness or you will overfill.
I now have 2 perfectly working valves, the circuit-board was faulty.

It takes a few minutes to install, need a little patience and you will feel that your rebuilding the entire unit but will fix the issue at once, this is a great product and Pex Supply can't be beat for service and follow up!

    Q:

    How can you tell if the solenoid valve for TrueSTEAM by Honeywell is bad? This is a new humidifier.

      A:

      I don't know. I was having problems with my unit after a year and the
      manual suggested replacing the solenoid, so I tried that, but that didn't
      work either. Ultimately, it turned out that my water was harder than I
      thought and so I needed to install a filter.

      A:

      A few of the fault conditions are associated with a bad solenoid valve. When you press the reset button, a fault condition is indicated by blinking red light. The number of blinks tells you the fault. There is a table in the installation guide. This is how I knew the solenoid valve was bad.

      Mine went bad 4 years after installation. It would continue to fill non stop and drain at the same time. Most likely a mineral deposit got stuck on the drain solenoid and it couldn't close properly.

      A:

      The solenoid assembly either opens on the fill side to fill the tank, or
      opens on the drain side to drain the tank. Either the tank won't fill,
      won't stop filling, won't drain or won't stop draining. Not sure if you
      will be able to tell if it's a controller issue or a solenoid issue.
      My solenoid started failing after 2 years with a slow continuous leak
      through the drain line. The scale from the water tank blocked the seal
      on the drain side of the solenoid.

      A:

      In my case, the hot water tank of the humidifier failed to drain after
      either (1) pressing the "Drain" button or (2) unplugging the unit. The
      water would cool down (i.e heater would disengage) but I had to remove the
      full tank and drain (make sure water cools down before you do this!!!).
      After I reinstalled the tank (cleaning and replacing water level sensors)
      the tank would fail to fill with water and humidifier would blink a
      malfunction.
      Water source to the humidifier was verified to be open and flowing.
      After replacing the solenoid problem was solved.
      The water source to my house is heavy in minerals. I usually replace the
      filter, water level sensor, and solenoid once a year due to heavy deposits.

      A:

      I went through the troubleshooting guide and based on the # of flashing red
      lights it led me there. On my truesteam (4 years of owning) the most
      prevalent issue will be that water isn't making into the unit. Whether it
      be a clog in the water line or after a full season the filter won't let the
      right amt of water through it will start throwing error. Maybe check to
      make sure water is making it into the unit?
      Hope that helps!

      If you hear the relay click for the solenoid but do not see water following you should replace it.
       
      If you do not hear the click of the relay the unit is bad.
       
      I have one unit go bad after first year. 
       
      After season  is finished clean and unplug unit.

      In the case of my bad solenoid valves, they would not open to let water
      into the TrueSteam unit. However, after adding the Honeywell reverse
      osmosis unit over the summer, I have had zero issue with my solenoid valve
      this winter. I live in central North Carolina and a water hardness test
      strip showed my city water to be on the hard end of the spectrum.

      Answered on 3/10/2012 by Another PexSupply Customer
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The most common failure I have seen is when the solenoid fails
      to shut off. This can even happen on a brand new unit. The
      tank will fill, then water will overflow through the drain
      line. Marginal solenoids will be able to shut off with a lower
      feed pressure, but this may only be a temporary solution.
      I plan on putting in a new one each year. This frequency
      will probably reduce when using the RO unit.

      A:

      Sure,
      I purchased the Honeywell a couple of years ago from Pex and had it installed by a local Hvac company. It worked fine for a few months then the yellow light that says it needed to be cleaned manually came on. I cleaned it and reset it but the light came right back on. I cleaned it again and same thing. When I pressed the "empty" button it would not empty. I phoned Honeywell and explained the situation and they refused to send me the new part unless I had an Hvac installer verify that that part was the problem. It would have cost a lot more to bring in the Hvac person than to simply buy and replace the part from Pex. I told Honeywell what I thought of their lack of support and purchased the part from Pex. When it arrived I installed it and VOILA the Tru-Steam has been working fine since.
      So the key is that if the unit is clean and the manual cleaning light keeps coming on and if the unit will not empty then the solenoid valve is not working right.

      When my solenoid valve was bad, the humidifier would not fill or drain.
      Based on the troubleshooting information in the manual, this indicated a
      possible solenoid valve. Also, when the solenoid opens for draining, there
      is an audible click, which wasn't present when mine stopped working.
