WHEN I TURN ON THE HUMIDISTAT the water line going into the filter just starts gushing!is this the selenoid?

first its important to understand how humidifiers work ,

they work by using a pressurized source of water (prefer demineralized) that enters a chamber that has a device that wicks the water up into it , then a fan induces a draft across it , this produces evaporation of the water into the air flow , this air is then ducted into the air handler for the structure (home?)
now that being said the water chamber needs constant refilling due to evaporation of water from air flow , most times this is handled from a solenoid valve that is basically an electric operated valve , and yes it's logical that it could be tied to a humidistat for demand use only .

also this type of humidifier requires frequent cleaning or it may back up and spill water in the wrong places ,especially if there isn't a demineralizing filter on water line , as the minerals that naturally occur in water don't evaporate and get left inside the chamber , making less and less room for new water to be added

How to insert the demineralization cartridge

Simply drop one into each water container through the filler mouth. They remain inside during subsequent fills.

Does not give mist

Try running vinegar through it. This helps to demineralize it. Once it's clean, put salt in it to create more steam.

Why does it discharge a white powder in the mist?

  • Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
  • you could say you have dirty water. Unplug the humidifier from the wall.
  • 2 Remove the existing water from the humidifier. Water contains several types of minerals, including iron and sodium, which cause the white powder when released into the air.
  • 3 Clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer's instructions. This may involve disassembling the unit and replacing the humidifier's filter.
  • 4 Pour demineralized or distilled water into the humidifier's tank. These liquids have a lower mineral content than tap water.
  • 5 Consider switching to a humidifier that comes equipped with a demineralizing filter, which removes the minerals found in tap water before they are dispersed into the air.

    How do you fill the venta humidifier I don't have

    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.

    Humidifier not working

    Ensure there is water in the tank.
    • This may be caused by mineral deposits in the water channels. Try the following: Clean the water tank, base and vapor nozzel with a damp cloth to remove any build up in the water channel.
    • When was the last time the cartridge was changed. (If it’s been over 3 months, this could be the reason why the unit is not working properly.)
    • Unscrew the demineralization cartridge and run the unit, if it starts to mist then you need a new cartridge. (insert cartridge link here)
    • The screw cap for the water tank, onto which one first screws in the demineralization cartridge, has a small rubber gasket. make sure that gasket is not too far down against the outer screw cap. If it is the spring loaded button would not work properly to let the water descend into the base tank .
      The solution: push up on that small rubber gasket so that it is as far up and away from the screw cap as it can be without falling off, and voila! you get mist!!
    • If you have changed the filter recently then take out the cartridge and run the unit without the cartridge for about 15 to 20 minutes.

    White dust coming out of humidifier

    A concern is minerals in the water. Impeller and ultrasonic designs send these minerals into the air. If the water in your area contains a lot of minerals, you will notice them as dust. The EPA does not issue health warnings about minerals in the air, but does recommend using low-mineral water (such as distilled water) in your humidifier. Many ultrasonic models feature a demineralization cartridge that filters minerals out of the water to prevent the dust.

    Good Luck

    Humidifier blows out dust

    As the previous poster said, it's probably a problem with your water.

    Are you using tap water or bottled mineral water? If so, there are minerals which get nebulized along with the water, and leaves a white, dusty, residue. I fill my Crane Pig humidifier with DISTILLED water, which is pretty pure. Make sure that the water is DISTILLED ONLY, since some of the water companies distill the water and then add minerals back in (they almost got me here until I noticed the label that said "with minerals added"). The reason this is important is because during the distilling process, the water is boiled, evaporated, and then the vapor is condensed back to liquid. This removes any impurities or dissolved minerals from the water. You can see Wikipedia for more on this topic here.

    Additionally, I use both the Crane Demineralization Filter Cartridge (which works for the penguin as well, and gets installed in place of the original water tank cap), and the ProTec PC-1 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Cartridge (which I plop into the water tank) to keep the water both de-mineralized and bacteria free. I got both products at

    With these 3 things, so far I haven't had any white dust residue, and the mist feels fresh and clean.

    On a side note, by using distilled water, you also prevent any mineralization from building up on the nebulizer or water level sensor, which can cause the humidifier to eventually stop producing mist...
