You'll read a lot about making sure that the filter is clean and that the medicine cup is cleaned and that hard water can effect the operation of the nebulizer. However, the problem is most likely in the pump. Even though the pump is running, it is not pushing enough air into the medicine cup. You may even feel air coming out of the tube. When unrestricted, the air will come out, but, once restricted by the medicine cup, the air may not be fast enough to nebulize the liquid. If you want to confirm this, take the tube and hold it to the end of a bike pump, if, while pumpung, you successfully see mist, then you know for sure.

Fixing the pump is not too difficult. Over time, the chamber where the air is compressed becomes dry and, just like a dry bike pump, the air escapes from the chamber due to poor seals. The pump is pretty simple. Make sure it is unplugged from power and remove the screws holding the housing together. Inside you will see the motor, a fan, a power switch and the intake and outtake tubes. Follow the outtake tube to the pump. The junction where the tubes meet the pump is the location of the air chamber. You may need to remove the screws that secure the tubes to the chamber. Once apart, take some grease and lightly coat all of the interior surfaces of the chamber. When finished, reassemble and you're good to go!

You may want to check the holes to make sure they are fitted tightly and not clogged in some way to where the mist is not able to come through correctly and you may want to check to see if there is some kind of malfunction with the machine so if you kept the papers to it call the manufactor and explain to them the problem and they also may be able to tell you what is going on with it if nothing i told you works, Good Luck!

What truth in anti aging creams combining


I would ask a dermatologist or some doctor

You know your not going to prevent aging at all

Those products like most products, just take your
money & make some for companies

I would suspect the hollywood & fashion folks
may benefit, until they are 40 or so, but not most
people

I think all TV & other ads are bogus & not necessary

If there was no money involved-- they wouldn't be there

My wife has a theory that cancer & other things would
be cured decades ago, if the Govt wanted that & the
private sector could make money.

In some cases they can find cures & make money
& they won't tell us why they choose not to,check that
out.

How is it you can have Ebola & be cured in 3 weeks,
for the first time in the US & still developing the drugs,
until they need to pick up the pace,then in a few day's
the research was done & product on the way to Atlanta?

You need to get thermometers with humidity display. Get several and put them around the house.
Next I would change the brand of shampoo they use.

Hi i have problem of bleeding gums and bad smell


Go to your dentist and see if he can diagnose a problem. It seems to me that you may have a severe cause of gum disease and possibly coupled with halitosis. But sometimes bad breath can be attributed to more serious underlying conditions so i would definitely get it checked out.

How long does it consider for hair to grow right back after baldness?


I've read natural hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia and, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, is the most common cause of baldness. The gene can be inherited from either ***********'s or father's side of the family, though you're more likely to have it if both of your parents had hair loss. As for for natural hair regrowth supplements you can try Relox.

Throw away the "Intel Motherboard" -- it offers no hope for your self-medication.

Since the "over-the-counter" medications are not working for you, it's time to seek professional help, either a walk-in medical-clinic, or your family doctor, or your HMO.
