Yes it is doing what it is supposed to do, just remember to clean it regularly, it is both a fine mist and steam, I would recommend having an fan source close to it to keep the humidification moving in the home, hope that helps.

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

Do I add salt with the water when using this cool mist humidifier


Hello

Ive been down this road before,sorry your son is sick.

Take a teaspoon of salt and add it to a full tank,it will break up the corrosion on the heating elements,a teasspoon of baking soda will help also.

This will not hurt anyone if it blows into the air with the steam.

I have this same problem. And cool mist humidifiers DO produce mist. I have had my humidifier for a while now (6 years) and have never had any problems. But after the most recent cleaning, it worked at first, but now seems to not be working anymore... Am also wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy the situation?

Family Care cold mist humidifer


cool mist humidifiers don't put out any mist. only the warm ones do. now if you put your hand over the area where it's coming out for about 2 minutes and take it away your hand should feel damp. almost clammy. if it feels like that the unit is working fine. so your not doing anything wrong. if you have any other concerns please let me know.

Kenmore HW305 Humidifier putting out hot steam...Is that normal?


this is a steam and misting type humidifier, the water tanks will not heat up, the heating element is internal to the unit, just make sure you clean it periodically and I would suggest having a fan asst to help move the humidification around the room, hope that helps
