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!

How much oil do I ideally put into a full gas tank on my 2 stroke Kymco Like 50? can you put too much?


Hi, not familiar with this bike,does it not have a separate oil tank,?, if your machine is pre mix this means you mix the correct amount of oil and fuel together as. Single form of lubrication, this way the oil gets directly to the engine parts, when the fuel,oil,and air mixture enter the engine the spark ignights it and the engine running process is started, the mixture is atomized to a form of mist, to much oil would render the mist to sticky, and seizure may occure from overheating, as would also be the case for to little oil, MY RESEARCH DOES NOT COME UP WITH A 4T 2 STROKE
ONLY A 4 STROKE WHICH OBVOUSLY HAS NO OIL ADDED TO THE PETROL.

I got the Crane Cool Mist humidifier - drop shape in blue. Although i can feel a small amount of air coming out from the spout, mist is not visible, not a bit.


if you can hear the fun noise, you need to check major circuit, should be bad capacitor. if no noise at all, replace the fun.
actually they have very good customer service. just contact by email or phone, tell them what's happened, they should give you a RMA number, put the tank cap and cut small piece of power cable, send to them, you will receive a brand new humidifier within couple weeks. even your machine slightly out of warranty.

Why does my humidifiers does not have any smoke coming out?


My Guess is that the reletive humidity in the room is not low enough to see any vapors coming from the machine. Normaly you won't see these anyway. Some models in the stores seem to make more mist than what you get at home. If the humididty level in a room is close to what is coming out of the machine there will be no signs of any mist coming out. Just make sure the filters are clean and check and make sure the water level is going down on the machine and this will tell you its workin. the faster you are using the water in the tank the more you are putting in the air! If this is a hot mist machine then I would say the heating element in the machine is not working.

The hoses might have a heater control valve on one ofthem,check and see,an you may have to replace it.Also make sure there is enough coolant in the system,it will not flow threw the heater core if there is not enough coolant in the system,the mist could be the hole in the heater core.

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.

No mist!


unfortunately on a cool mist unit the mist shouldn't show up. on most units that's what it does. the warm mist units show the mist.. the best way to tell is if you put your hand over the spout that the mist is suppose to come out of for about 2 minutes and you pull it away and it feel clammy then it's working. if your hand is still dry please let me know and i'll see what else i can do for you.
