I have the Windchaser HUL60 1.8 Gallon Humidifier. This is the 3rd season I've used it. Just took it out for the winter season and the first couple of days it worked fine. Now now mist/steam, etc is coming out of the top like it's supposed to. It's set at 45%. The display is showing it's only at 35%. It's thoroughly cleaned every year before its stored away. I don't know what the problem is.

medication was never meant to go into a humidifier. it clogs the transducer. if you can clean the vicks off the transducer plate you might squeeze another season out of it, otherwise by adding medication to the machine you just gave it an early death.
Your V5100N ultrasonic humidifier generates a fine mist by vibrating the water at an exremely high speed. The water doesn't actually evaporate until after the water mist is in the air. As the tiny water droplets evaporate in the air, the calcium and other minerals settle on your floors and furniture.
Humidifiers that evaporate the water in a filter wick, or with heat, do not generate dust because the water evaporates inside the unit and the calcium is trapped inside.
You can avoid the dust problem with your humidifier by using distilled water. Distilled water is available in most stores that sell bottled water in gallons...but be sure to choose "distilled" water, not "purified" water. Try the distilled water in your steam iron also...if you have one. It will last longer.
Soak it with vinegar for several hours then use a soft nylon bristled brush to scrape off the minerlized crust and rinse. You probably need to replace the silver stick & mineralization cartridge more often.
