In the bottom of the humidifier is a little disk that vibrates to turn water to vapor. This gets covered in mineral deposits and won't vibrate properly. They usually suggest something like vinegar to clean it. I found that this didn't work for me. What did work was cleaning it with my Waterpic on the highest setting. It chipped away the deposits and allowed it to work. HOWEVER, once you get it running again, buy the slant fin mineral absorption pads to keep it running. If you have mineral-rich water like me, you'll go through them quickly, but you also won't have white deposits on your walls anymore.
FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.
The pad is very easy to replace. Simply remove the water tank. The mineral pad floats in the hot water reservoir. Pull out the old one and discard if it has begun to break down. That's all their is to it.
Mine did the same thing at the end of last winter. I did not discover it to be one of the rubber tubes (boots as you say) until I went to use it this past fall. The manuf. said send it back for a replacement (they do not fix these or offer parts) which I did in Nov. and still have not received the replacement. Nice deal for them.
The nozzle is NOT fixed in place. Force it either clockwise or counterclockwise (it doesn't matter. Then simply lift up. Deposits may have accumulated leaving the impression that it cant be moved, but it can!
My Slant Fin humidifier has a floating, ring-shaped magnetic level that isn't replaceable. You can't even tell it's magnetic until you cut off the piece that prevents the white plastic float from rising past a certain point. It turns out that there is a ring-shaped magnet in the float.
I found that the Refill light would go off when I held a strong magnet near the float device.
So, I have suspended the magnet with string from the top of the humidifier outside the humidifier.
Caution: This fix disables the safety feature inherent in the low level shut off. I wonder why the manufacturer uses material that corrodes?
