Dyson AM10 Hygienic Mist humidifier - weekly cleaning

The video below shows how to correctly carry out the simple weekly cleaning process for your Dyson AM10 Hygienic Mist humidifier.

Cleaning procedures must be routinely followed to ensure that the humidifier continues to operate efficiently. Cleaning regimes are designed to help prevent the build up of scale within the machine, which will be more prominent in hard water areas. Failure to adhere to the cleaning regimes may invalidate the warranty.

Please note we recommend unplugging the machine for at least 10 minutes prior to any user maintenance or cleaning as some components may become hot during normal use.

Do not allow the machine to run in humidifier mode without water in the tank.

new filter,still no mist and water level does not drop


make sure that the filter is VERY snug into the bottom of the humidifier, and that the tank is on correctly. We had the same problem :)

We have a Sunbeam Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier that we bought just over 2 months ago. Up until a couple of days ago, it was producing mist and running just fine. I cleaned it with the brush and got the mineral junk out of the base as well as off any surfaces i could reach. Put the canister back on the base and still, no mist.


I have this same problem. And cool mist humidifiers DO produce mist. I have had my humidifier for a while now (6 years) and have never had any problems. But after the most recent cleaning, it worked at first, but now seems to not be working anymore... Am also wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy the situation?

Humidifier leaves film everywhere!


I talked to Kaz, a manufacturer of humidifiers, and they said this is referred to as "white dust". It's simply the minerals from your water settling on your furniture...I had to same problem so I called the manufacturer.

He said it's not dangerous but that I should use distilled water in my humidifier from now on since my water will always do that. He also stressed the importance of cleaning the unit weekly with a bleach and vinegar solution per the manufacturers specs.
