Need online instruction manual for hankscraft humidifier model 240


I found this. There are no manuals available on line.

Here we have a used working HANKSCRAFT / GERBER COOL VAPOR HUMIDIFIER Model 240 WITH INSTRUCTION MANUAL and STEAMED CLEANED. This humidifier, by Gerber, has a 1 3/5 Gallon Capacity, and produces cool vapor for up to 18 - 20 hours in low, medium or high settings. The humidifier works great , does not have the directional nozzle included but does come with a copy of the instructions.

Hi have a vicks warm steam vaporizer model v188. works great, just wanting to clean it. Can't find my manual anywhere.


The easiest ans simplest way to clean it, is too mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar & Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and fill the the tank with the solution. Allow it to set for 30 minutes, then turn the unit ON. Allow it to run, until the tank is half empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill with the Bottled Distilled Water Turn the unit ON and run until the tank is almost empty. Following these instruction will remove all the lime and calcium build up in the unit.

Tip: Using bottled Distilled Water rather than Tap Water, will totally eliminate calcium and lime buildup.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My vaporizer is running however there is no steam coming from the machine. Ran all night and used no water does it need cleaned or should i just replace it. thank you


Well, let's consider what we have:

How old is the vaporizer?-- Could the heating coil be all limed up?
Lime-Away, or Vinegar might help clear the Calcium and mineral build up on the heating element-
Or there might be a bad connection?-- Do you have any lights lit?

Open it up, and tell us what you find-

My humidifier smells moldy; how can I clean it?


You can use vinegar, or bleach. Wipe out the bottom with a damp cloth with the bleach or vinegar solution.
Here's the manual: http://www.crane-usa.com/manuals/HumidifierManual2008.pdf It has more cleaning instructions.

Spitting noises and gushing water


Another alternative to vinegar is to use lemon juice. About 1 cup to a tank of water should do the trick. It smells much better than vinegar and also has the acid content to clean the vaporizer.

My vaporizer is barely putting out any steam...is there a way to clean this unit so that it will produce more steam? This is a Vicks 1.5 gal unit.


Is the water in your area soft? If so, add a few pinches of salt. Vaporizers boil the water by running electricity through it. If your water is too soft, no electricity and therefore no steam.

If you have hard water, and the unit must be cleaned, try soaking it in vinegar.

How do you clean the vaporizer?


Take it apart, and UNPLUG IT. soak the blades in vinegar for about 30 minutes. That will soften the deposits. Wipe clean and if necessary, repeat. rinse and it's ready to use.

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -


No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

Humidifier does not reset


According to Holmes, one of the causes of the Reset light staying on is scale buildup on the heating element.

Remove Scale: Allow to cool before maintenance.
1. Repeat steps 1-5 in the Daily Maintenance section.
2. Clean the base 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 chance to cool.

If the scale has really built up it might take longer than 20 mins for the vinegar to get rid of it and you might need to refresh with new vinegar.

Good Luck.
