Question about Crane Cow Humidifier

1 Answer

Cow humidifier sparked and smoked.

We turned on the humidifier tonight and it sparked and started smoking. We are lucky it happened then and not in the middle of the night or we might have had a fire and lost our two boys. What should we do now?

Contact the manufacturer, and the retailer let them know about it and try for a refund.

Humidifier makes noise

I reckon you should toss it out as you don't really need it as it makes the air damp and mold will start forming inside the walls and create a health hazard.

Does the vaporizer help fight against smoke and second hand smoke??

No, it only humidifies (puts moisture) in the room air. As a matter of fact. that much humidity, the cigarette smoke may stain the walls and ceiling.

You definitely have a problem. One that could be costly, if you continue to use it. Whether it is still under warranty of not, you need to contact their Technical Service Dept, as they will be able to help you diagnose and repair the problem if possible.

How can you tell if it is working or not, it used to have a visible mist coming out, now it doesn't, you can feel air coming out and hear the fan working, but is it working?

Check the fan area on the base. My spongebob humidifier did the same thing, and then I noticed smoke and sparks coming from the fan area. i am trying to contact Crane for a replacement, but its 2 years old, and warranty is over.

When I plug the unit in it gives a puff of smoke and kicks my breaker

Sounds like you have a pinched or bare wire inside the unit. If it has louvers for ventilation, I would try this experiment, but just once, and it needs to be at night. Reset the breaker, and get a small flashlight. Go to the unit and get it ready to plug in. Turn off the lights in the room and make sure it is really quiet, use the flashlight to get to the unit and the plug. Looking at the unit, turn off the flashlight and plug it in. You should listen for a crack or pop (the sound of the short) and watch inside the unit for a spark (the location of the short). If my hunch is correct, you will find the problem and be able to repair it. If not, then I would recommend calling out a tech or taking the unit to a repair depot. Good Luck.
