When I first got the product, it worked great. Now there's hardly any steam coming out.


what is your water quality like. Anyway, unplug, and remove the screws from the underside of heating element. Pull unit apart and clean the heating coils, gonna have to scrap them with a utility knife. If you have hard water, deposits will build up on them , check them once a week if useing often

How do i get the motor housing apart to clean the inside of it. I live in a place with very little humidity. I run the humidifier 24 hours a day for 6 months out of the year. The motor housing gets...


I don't think they want you to open the motor housing as it could cause them problems. This unit was not intended to do the job your asking it to do and you should consider a humidifier for your home or apartment. they can be added by a HVAC man and are not to expensive. I think this would help you with both your problems.

Or put some CLR threw the motor and it will clean it up.

After the humidifier runs for a few minutes it just shuts off.


You might need to clean around the heating element...
we have very hard water and calcium builds up on and around the heating element and all the surrounding parts. I take it apart and pour CPR around the element and scrub with a brush .. once you get it clean it should stay running.

I'd like to clean my sunbeam warm mist humidifier


if you mean by stone build up, you need a de scaler such as clr from any hardware store. let it soak on the crusty parts overnight the rinse well with water. toothbrush helps too.

Build up or busted?


more and likely it is calcium build up on the unit. especially if your using tap water. even if you cleaned it before putting it away for the season the build up can happen. if it's on the heating coil you need to get like a toothbrush and some vinegar water and lightly scrub the coils. now as far as the tank. let the tank soak in vinegar and water for about a half hour and then wash thoroughly. the portions is one cap full of vinegar per gallon of water.

Humidifier creates film on everything in the room it is in.


the white film is just dust particles from the unit. it's also a bit of condensation that is building up. the particles are not harmful. but it's nice to keep it clean after every use. also the film is coming from the vicks. that is normal. so nothing worry about as far as harming the childs air or anything.

I can't remove the grill above the fan so I can clean the blades


I have a Holmes cool-mist One-Touch Humidifier, and you can't reach the blades to clean them, and you can't take the console apart. I finally decided to use two spray bottles and clean and them rinse the Humidifer while holding the console upside down and over a sink. The one bottle you could fill with any mild cleaner plus a lot of water to dilute the cleaner. Maybe dishwashing liquid (not the dishwasher stuff), or a little bit of ammonia, or rubbing alcohol, or vinegar. Spray that on the blades while the machine is upside down, and a lot of sooty dirt drips out. Then rinse with another spray bottle full of plain water. Leave the console upside down on a towel to drip-dry. This is also how you can clean silk flowers that collect dust.

Not enough humidity


thanks for your question,
seems to me you have a calcium build up inside the unit, something has slowed down the humidification process and that would be the most likely cause, you should run some diluted (CLR) through it and this should take care of the build up, leave it set for a while with the diluted solution in it then drain it out, and refill, give that a try and it should help, also check to make sure the fan is not getting cloged with dust and clean that too, thanks again for your question, please let us know how we did,

Noise when fan runs.


try cleaning the fan blades
dust/debris build up unbalances the fan and wears the bearings out
oil will only cure the problem for a short while - best option is to relace the fan
