The steam is condensing as it is expelled. The solution is to place a sheet of plastic underneath the unit to protect the surface

This humidifier has a puddle around the bottom when we wake up in the morning


You are getting condensed moisture from the steam. This could be due to over humidifying. You may have to put something waterproof, such as a big plastic sheet, under the humidifier and mopping up the next day

Hello,All the pads have a protectant(white) coating because the pad is aluminum and would rot out fairly quickly from getting wet.The slime is bacteria(fungus) not from the coating that forms from stagnant (sitting) water.Make sure the unit is draining out dry after each cycle.With the pad out pour vinegar OR bleach & water (10:1) to kill the mold in the drain pipe.Do not clean the pad at all ,it gets replaced.They sell an inexpensive wet floor alarm at the store that makes noise when wet.

sounds like the fan in the bottom does not have enough space. make sure the humidifer is on a flat hard surface. If its on carpet or other soft surface the fan can't push air out and the vapor won't come out.

Clarion da1030 steamed carpet to white?


Hi, I really hate to give bad news it affects my ratings! The hot water didn't bleach the carpet, more like washed the color out. The dye in the carpet was no match for boiling hot water and the result was washed out spots. You can try to find some commercial dyes to fix the spots or replace the affected area. Sorry!

Dirt in the water tank.


Its from the dust in the air.
It collects on the wet surface inside the humidifier and drains down.
A better air filter on your AC system would help reduce that, what type of filter are you currently using?

Water on floor around humidifier


I haven't had any problems with my Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier other than the fact that the area surrounding it is slightly wet after operating for a couple of hours....While I understand that I was using this to moisturize the air during a cold, I knew this would happen, because the air in my room is not dry. If the room isn't dry, the mist that it's putting out in to the air has no where to go but surround the humidifier. All I did to stop this was to buy a water proof mat. I suggest you do the same -- Also, in regards to the water smelling -- You should be cleaning out and drying the basin after every use. Water shouldn't smell unless you let it stagnate inside the plastic -- Try running distilled vinegar through the machine for a couple of minutes -- Also, I would use an extension cord and let it run outside so that your house doesnt smell like Vinegar.
