Question about Venta Airwasher VS 207 3.7 Gallon Humidifier
I cleaned my Venta VS207 for first time. Used attached brush and plain water. Now it flashes but does not work. Maybe got water in some part? It's less than a year old. Any advice?
My unit was doing the same thing as others here and I was able to fix the issue. I believe the issue is that the sensor for the water level, which is located in a tube connecting the two water reservoirs in the main unit, has something blocking the sensor. Most likely this is bacteria growth or other debris which has built up over time. I used Oxy Clean which has some bubbling action and very hot water to clean both sides for about 30 minutes. When I flushed out the reservoir, it started working again.
If take the base off the unit by removing the 4 screws, you will see the "tube" I'm talking about. Since this has what appears to be sensors in it, I didn't want to remove the tube from the bottom to clean it and instead to the approach above. Hope this helps someone.

I experienced the same thing. It seems to take time for the water level to get to a high enough point in the base after going though the filter. After placing the water tank back on the machine, let the water "find its level" for about 5 or 10 minutes. You will hear the bubbles comeing out of the filter during this time. Then turn the machine on. This is what worked for me.

Tips for a great answer:
Fill Water Tank.
Turn off humidifier and unplug the power cord from A/C outlet. Remove tank from
base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled,
filtered, or tap water. Do not attempt to fill unit through Vapor Nozzle. Water temperature
should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can damage the
unit. Tighten filling cap firmly. Return tank to base and let it sit for a few minutes. For
first time use or when replacing the demineralization cartridge filter, please soak the
filter in warm water for several minutes.
