How to clean fan blades on sunbeam humidifier model 1118


I picked up a Sunbeam Humidifier model 1118 for $7 (which was $7 too much) second hand. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed it was filthy-dirty inside...(dirtier than shown in the photos) the reservoir, the bottom tray, AND the fan chamber all needed major cleaning.

A quick Google search told me that the grill is "not removable", and the unit is "not user serviceable". Companies do this/say this for two reasons:

a) They want you to throw it away and buy a new one, landfills and plastic filling our oceans be darned
b) They want to protect themselves from lawsuits, should someone injure themselves servicing their product (or in this instance, cutting their fingers off on the fan blade).

Imagine if all of that design know-how was put into making the product serviceable, cleanable, and long-lasting, rather than ensuring it can't be opened or repaired by the average joe.

Me, I've opened and repaired enough gadgets to think differently.

You CAN remove the grille.
Carefully insert a series of flat-head screwdrivers between the grill and the body a few inches apart, wedging the grill edge away from the body.
There are slits in the body (see photos) that will allow you to get under the grill edge and pry it right out when enough of it has been detached from the anchoring groove.
But be gentle while you're doing it.
The Grille is plastic and flexible; it will bend, but if you use too much force you will damage either the grill or the body.

The photos also show how the grill is anchored to the body - via a groove in the grille edge.

You can put the grille back after cleaning the blades and fan chamber much the same way; pressing down, and if required: prying the side of the grill inwards with a flat head screwdriver.
Mine snapped right back into place with a bit of downward pressure.

I purchased a used Sunbeam Humidifier SWM5602 and need the manual. I have tried to search it and get a free copy so I know how to operate and clean it. Can you email me a downloadable copy of the manual?...


Lana, apparently that Model Number may have been discontinued. However, your Owners Manual may be available by calling Sunbeam Appliance @ 888 -264-9669.

Hope this helps you get the manual.

How do you clean the 705 ultrasonic humidifier


You can soak everything but the motor in bleach or vinegar water. Rinse well with HOT water.
The filter is disposable, cleaning doesn't help with them.

Cleaning problem for- Sunbeam 646 2 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier


NO . Brush off as much as you can get off. Buy a xcan of compressed air or find a place that has compressed air and blow it out. I do not believe it to be safe placing a motor into a bleach/water solution.

Sunbeam ultrasonic humidifier runs but produces no mist


It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time. These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.
