Solenoid valve replacement for humidifier

Jeff_in_ColoradoNovember 26, 2011

Greetings!

Anyone know if I can purchase any brand solenoid valve to replace one for the following humidifier? $110!

HE260

I am assuming that the solenoid valve is just an electric switch for the valve, so why not find something cheaper?

Thanks,

Jeff

Their prices seem a little steep. Clicked on a link for a humidistat. Their price: $76.00; Home Depot: $30.00.

"is just an electric switch for the valve"

No, it is a valve with an electrical actuator.

That is a ridiculous price though.
