The demineralzation cartaridge seems to be the issue. Remove it and see it the misting starts. If it does put a hole in the center cylinderical support of the demineralzation cartaridge, the one that fits over the white positioning post that is built into the base of the humidifier. This will allow the cartirdge to sink to the bottom and not interfer with the water tank plunger opening up and filling the base.I opened the hole completly but I think a smaller hole will do.

For the humidifier to work you need to have th blower running do that means that you either have to turn the blower on manaually or the heat must be running alot...
I would suggest that you turn the blower or fan switch to the on position for a few days to force the blower to run...this will get the humidity up and then you may have enough runtime for heating for it to keep up then...

I have the same problem and I have 2 of them fairly new. I can't seem to find out what the problem is either.

If the unit runs normally otherwise, but doesn't give off vapor, then your heating element is the culprit. i.e. if fan runs, switches in normal positions, indicating lights on, etc.and restart slide switch depressed and no mist, then, yes the heating element is the source of the problem. It may be bad, or otherwise it may just be scaled up from hard water, and require cleaning.
You may refer to your users manual, or if you no longer have a copy, you may download one at this link: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000006709.pdf
Hope this answers your question.
