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

I bought a cool mist humidifier an added 1 gallon of distilled water too the tank. I added 1 teaspoon of baking soda but still no mist. What should i do?


you may need to empty the water that went into the base and retry putting the top tank back on sometimes too much water gets into the bottom and it wont put out vapor. at least mine does that and it is an ionic cool mist humidifier which means uses no filter

I HAVE A vICKS VAPORSIOR AND HAVENT USED IT VERY OFTER THERES no STEAM COMMING OUT EVER I USE COLD WATER DON'T FILL ABOVE THE FILL LINE I ALSO CLEANED IT REALLY GOOD WITH CLOROX. aNY SUGGESTIONS???


The unit may simply has a calcium scale build up and it's blocking the water passage. To clean it, empty in water remaining in the tank. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water and fill the tank. Allow it to soak for at least one hour, then turn the unit ON. Place you hand in front of the misting nozzle to see if it's working. If you don't feel any mist, turn the unit OFF and allow it sit over night. If you do feel mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty Turn the unit OFF, pour out the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the humidifier until it's empty. This will flush the system entirely. In the future, I would recommend you use Bottled Distilled Water, instead of Tap Water. If you do, you won't have to descale the unit any more.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

I turn the humidifier on l or ll. The light is grean but it is not releasing steam or anything. I don't hear a noise and the water level stays the same.


The humidifier may be clogged with a calcium scale build up. Especially, if you use well water or your municipal water supply has a high chemical content.

To solve this problem do the following. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any water that is currently in the tank and fill it with the 50/50 solution. Allow at least one hour, before turning the unit ON. After turning it ON place you hand in front of the mist nozzle to see if any mist is being generated. If it's generating mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Then turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the remaining solution. Refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run until the tank is empty.

If the unit did not produce mist after one hour of soaking, allow it to set over night and then follow the procedure above. Generally, an overnight soaking will do the trick. In the future, I recommend using Bottle Distilled Water rather than your tap water.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

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.

New filter,still no mist and water level does not drop


make sure that the filter is VERY snug into the bottom of the humidifier, and that the tank is on correctly. We had the same problem :)

Cleaning a Cool Mist BCM6100U Humidifier


usually it calls for one cap full per gallon of water that the unit has. what you do then is that you put the solution in the water then you put the tank back on the base and then you turn the unit on and let the solution run through your unit.

No instruction manual


FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.

My mother's Kenmore HW305 humidifier is putting out hot steam. Is that normal or is this a cool mist humidifier?


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.
