How to clean sunbeam humidifier swm5250


CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (from the manual):

The following maintenance procedures must be routinely followed in order to ensure proper, efficient operation of your humidifier. The unit WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY if it is not cleaned properly.

When the unit is in use, daily and weekly maintenance is recommended. Regular weekly cleaning prevents scale buildup on the heating element and base. It also prevents micro-organisms from growing on the base. This ensures that maximum efficiency will be achieved.

We cannot over-emphasize how essential proper cleaning is to the maintenance and continued use of your unit and to the the avoidance of algae or bacteria build-up.

DAILY MAINTENANCE
Allow to cool before maintenance.
1. Before cleaning, set the control to OFF (O) position and unplug the unit from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove the water tank then unlock the misting chamber by rotating the safety lock towards the front of the unit. Lift mist chamber from the unit's base.
3. Empty water and minerals from the base and place in the top rack of the dishwasher. This will remove any sediment and dirt that has accumulated in the base.
NOTE: It is imperative that the base is cleaned properly. The base is dishwasher safe (top rack ONLY) for easy cleaning.
4. Wipe the heating element clean with a soft cloth after it has had a chance to cool.
5. Replace misting chamber and engage safety lock. The Electronic Thermal Control Heating element is lined with a coating that is designed to provide the easiest cleaning and prolong the operating efficiency of the humidifier. DO NOT use any metal or hard objects to clean the Heating Element. Never use detergents, gasoline, kerosene, glass cleaner, furniture polish, paint thinner or other household solvents to clean any part of the humidifier.

WEEKLY MAINTENANCE
Remove Scale: Allow to cool before maintenance.
1. Repeat steps 1-5 in the Daily Maintenance section.
2. Clean the tray by partially filling the base with one 8 oz. cup of undiluted white vinegar. Let solution stand 20 minutes, cleaning all interior surfaces with a soft brush. Dampen a cloth with undiluted white vinegar and wipe out entire base to remove scale.
3. Rinse with clean warm water to remove scale and the white vinegar solution before beginning to disinfect the tank.
4. Wipe the heating element clean with a soft cloth after it has had a chance to cool.

Disinfect Tank:
1. Fill tank with 1/2 teaspoon of chlorine bleach and 1/2 gallon of water.
2. Let the solution stand for 20 minutes, swishing every few minutes. Wet all surfaces.
3. Empty the tank after 20 minutes, and rinse well with water until the bleach smell is gone. Dry with a clean cloth of paper towel.
4. Refill the water tank with cool water; replace the housing and water tank. Repeal ALL Operating Instructions.

Making gurgling sounds and spitting water. Do i just need to send it back, it's only a few months old


Before I returned it I would clean it thourghly and refill with clean water and about 1/4 teaspoon of table salt. Run it thru a full cycle and see if that helps. You can also rinse it out and refill with a 1/2 cup of vinagar and run again.This shoul help loosen and clean any mineral deposits. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Used our humidifier last winter, cleaned it, dryed it, and put it away. took it out to use it and it was a little dusty, so i cleaned and dryed it again, but for some reason it wont work. when you turn the...


If it smells like plastic burning. Stop using it immediately. As there could be an electrical short or overheating of the unit. If doesn't smell like plastic burning, you'll need to be more descriptive of what the odor smells like.

How do I clean / sanitize my sunbeam humidifier swm5250 with bleach?


I'm no expert, but a friend of mine loaned me her humidifier recently and she just put some bleach and water in the tank and cleaned the tank with that. It did leave a smell of bleach in the tank that could be smelled any time it ran, but after a few refillings, it went away, and I figure if it smells there must be a little left, which means it should clean the working parts fairly well too. (while you're running it the first few times) And the medicine tray in the SWM5250 is dishwasher safe, so I would just run that through the dishwasher, but bleach should be fine for that too.

Power light is on, water is up to fill line, dials are set to max humidity and fan speed, but fans do not spin. Tried to spin fans manually but they will not spin on their own. Left fan stopped spinning...


Do the motors feel warm-- maybe even HOT?-- Like they have electric current, but the bearings might be seizing up?
You mentioned one stopped spinning awhile ago--- and the other one was OK-

It sounds like the bearings are dry and worn on the fans-- (How old is the humidifier?)

The bearings CAN be cleaned up and lubricated, if you are into tearing a motor apart, and servicing the bearings-- Are you ready for that? You will have to remove the motors from their mounting, remove the fans, split the end bells, and clean and lubricate the bearings deep inside.

Let us know how much further you want to go-

Cleaning internal humidifier


Try using vinegar and distilled water.
If this does not work try using a little bleach and water. Repeat till mildew is gone.
Rinse thoroughly Again & Again.
Everyday humidifiers should be cleaned.
After your last uses try blow drying it. Before you put it away. If it's dry it will not mold or mildew.
Mold & mildew will cause you to get very sick.
If the mildew does not go away replace your unit.

Humidifier stopped working after cleaning.


It started working again on its own. Not much of a solution!

I think some water must have got into the electronics and then once it dried, the humidifier started to work again.

Er3--is this an error message?


This sounds like the float switch may be stuck - giving an error message - usually these are not too hard to unstick - it is often a cleaning issue - the manual should show you where the float switch is and how to check it, but if the error message is not listed in the manual, if you are sure it is the correct manual then I would expect it to be a technicians job, else they would list the error message. Slant/Fin has sold the humidifier and PC-55 air purifier business to KAZ USA Inc. If you need replacement parts, repairs, or have any questions regarding the products, please contact them at: KAZ, Consumer Relations Dept. 250 Turnpike rd., Southborough, MA 01772 Phone: 800-477-0457 email: info@kaz.com also worth a look is: http://www.achooallergy.com/slantfin-ope... seems to be best forum for humidifier stuff Hope this helps :)
