General Aire 990-52 Solenoid Valve Assembly 115 Volt

SKU#: 99052
List Price: $132.64 Sale Price: $110.53
Product Description

This is a 115 volt, electrically-operated valve that turns the water on and off to your humidifier. This assembly contains a solenoid valve, which is fitted with an orifice. The orifice contains a strainer screen, which filters the water before it passes through the valve, catching things like sand and dirt which could otherwise cause blockage. This valve needs to be replaced about every ten years, or more often if it fails and is stuck open or closed. The threaded orifice fitted to the solenoid valve may also need to be replaced if it becomes clogged. This solenoid valve fits GeneralAire humidifier models 709, 1040, 1042. (Note: some units are equipped with a 24 volt solenoid valve. Look closely at your old one to see what voltage it is rated at before ordering this valve.)

This component is also known as part number: 7013

The manufacturer is sometimes referred to as General Filters, General Air but is correctly spelled GeneralAire®.

The item was shipped faster then I expected. However I had to rearrange the mounting bracket to fit where the valve was originally mounted. After that it worked fine...

Solenoid Valve Assembly by Barbara Smith (Cedar Lake In US)

Excellent! My ex-husband installed it about 2 weeks. Had the furnace company come yesterday to clean the furnace. Started up the furnace and the humidifier and both worked great. You saved me $200! Thank you very much and wishing you the best. Barbara

The valve was what I needed to repair the humidifier, but it required modification of the electrical connections to adapt to my product location. It was a less expensive fix than having a local repairman do the job.
