Need online instruction manual for hankscraft humidifier model 240


I found this. There are no manuals available on line.

Here we have a used working HANKSCRAFT / GERBER COOL VAPOR HUMIDIFIER Model 240 WITH INSTRUCTION MANUAL and STEAMED CLEANED. This humidifier, by Gerber, has a 1 3/5 Gallon Capacity, and produces cool vapor for up to 18 - 20 hours in low, medium or high settings. The humidifier works great , does not have the directional nozzle included but does come with a copy of the instructions.

A white dust is comming from my cool mist humidifier, is is dangerous to breathe?


Its probably just from the minerals in your water. If so you should be fine although it does make a bit of a mess around the house. If the white dust bothers you, fill your Hankscraft 240 with distillers water rather than tap water and the problem will go away.

I live in the Caribbean where the voltage is 220/240 so I need to know what size transformer I need to use with a 5.8amp Vicks vaporizer


Hi, you would need one that's around 1400 watts (watts = volts x amps so 240 x 5.8 = 1392)
I hope that helps.

What is proper procedure for running vinegar through my Hankscraft cool mist humidified?


Not sure why you would want to. Vinegar is typically used to remove calcium scale that remains after a heating element or electrodes boil off water. The Hankscraft 240 doesn't boil the water off. All the minerals in the water go out the spout with the mist.

I would like to know if my Hunt Vaporizer model 8 is worth anything


Not much. Most people want to buy new medical equipment / environmental control equipment if the original price is under $50 or so. They fear a used piece will be dirty and transmit infection or, less severe but also disturbing, cigarette smoke smell or cat hair. Cleaning costs and time will consume the costs and doesn't justify the risk of buying used. Especially if they have no way to return it if it stops working (or never works).

Hi have a vicks warm steam vaporizer model v188. works great, just wanting to clean it. Can't find my manual anywhere.


The easiest ans simplest way to clean it, is too mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar & Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and fill the the tank with the solution. Allow it to set for 30 minutes, then turn the unit ON. Allow it to run, until the tank is half empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill with the Bottled Distilled Water Turn the unit ON and run until the tank is almost empty. Following these instruction will remove all the lime and calcium build up in the unit.

Tip: Using bottled Distilled Water rather than Tap Water, will totally eliminate calcium and lime buildup.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My vaporizer is barely putting out any steam...is there a way to clean this unit so that it will produce more steam? This is a Vicks 1.5 gal unit.


Is the water in your area soft? If so, add a few pinches of salt. Vaporizers boil the water by running electricity through it. If your water is too soft, no electricity and therefore no steam.

If you have hard water, and the unit must be cleaned, try soaking it in vinegar.

How do you clean the vaporizer?


Take it apart, and UNPLUG IT. soak the blades in vinegar for about 30 minutes. That will soften the deposits. Wipe clean and if necessary, repeat. rinse and it's ready to use.

Air o swiss 7133 doesn't send out any vapor


Interestingly enough as soon as I posted here, I was able to find the source of the problem. It appears that during cleaning the water level sensor, a bobber which normally floats as the water level rises, became stuck the to bottom of the water base - see below for the picture. I was able to use a small wooden spoon to lightly apply pressure and release the bobber so that it could float, and instantly the vapor started flowing again.
