Need online instruction manual for hankscraft humidifier model 240


I found this. There are no manuals available on line.

Here we have a used working HANKSCRAFT / GERBER COOL VAPOR HUMIDIFIER Model 240 WITH INSTRUCTION MANUAL and STEAMED CLEANED. This humidifier, by Gerber, has a 1 3/5 Gallon Capacity, and produces cool vapor for up to 18 - 20 hours in low, medium or high settings. The humidifier works great , does not have the directional nozzle included but does come with a copy of the instructions.

I want to know best way to clean the humidifier and how often?


It all depends on a couple of factors.

First is the type of humidifier your using. Portable or whole house connected to the furnace. Steam, ultrasonic or filter. Your unit's instructions is the best guide as to how often you need to clean it and this can vary from every day to once a heating season.

My recommendation is to watch and clean the unit as soon as you see scale forming. Then in the future, reduce this to just before you see scale forming.

The second is the type of water you are using. Hard tap water is the worst and usually will require every day for small portable steam or ultrasonic units to once a week for filter models. For central whole house humidifiers, once a month (perhaps as little as every two weeks if your water is really hard, >10 grains hardness). There is no fixed formula for this, the idea is to perform on-going, preventive maintenance.

Soft or conditioned water will contain the same amount of minerals as hard, but the softener has replaced the calcium minerals with sodium minerals. (Sodium bicarbonate actually).The result is the humidifier will still form scale but it much easier to remove. With soft water scale, you can just break up the scale with your fingers and the filters can just be submerged in clean water and the salt scale will re-dissolve.

Third, with distilled water, you may only need to clean any of these units annually. (No minerals to for scale).

With any filter humidifier, consider using a commercial bactericide to prevent the growth of bacteria when the water sits for long periods (>14 days). Not so critical with soft water as the salt will retard the growth of bacteria, but very important with hard or distilled water. Don't use this product in ultrasonic or steam humidifiers as it will be carried into the air along with the water vapor, and can be considered as toxic.

With hard water, use a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water to dissolve the scale buildup. This works best if done on a regular basis. If left go too long, it become impossible to clean properly. You need only use regular water when using soft or distilled water in your humidifier.

My bell and howell sonic breathe humidifier worked for the first bottle of water and thats it. now i put the bottle on and the steam only comes out if we squeeze the water bottle.


It sounds like a piece of ''something'' fell inside the hole where the bottle goes. Can you check for that?

Is it ''take-apart-able?'' I can pretty much assure you that if you can _see_ the components involved where that bottle makes contact, you will find an obvious problem.

Obviously water is not getting _past_ something, and it really sounds simple to me. (i.e. ''take it apart, find obvious problem and correct it, then reassemble'').

Where do I add the vaporizing steam liquid


I believe that you just have to add it with the water in the container. Here is a video detailing the product and its use.

My vicks vaporizor model101 is all limed up and won't steam. The light comes on but no sound or steam. How can I clean it? I can't get it open. I have hard water with lots of lime.


A 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Water run through the system should clean it up. If it's really bad, you may have to do it twice. Just flush out the solution with claer water, before trying to use the Vaporizer, as it's intended.

In the future, due to high mineral content of your water, use Distilled Water. You can buy it by the gallon very inexpensively at pharmacies and grocery stores.

Got it on Craigslist


The red light indicates that there is no water in it. You need to put water in it, then a green light comes on instead. When the water runs out you will see the light turn red again. You need to fill it about 2/3 - 3/4 of the way up to make it last.  You should refill it about once a day or every 2 days depending on how often you use it. But when you see the red light on then you know the water is gone.

No steam comes out


I just took mine apart and cleaned the scale off the heating elements. Filled to the level with hot water and it was steaming good in about 2 mins.
