I had left my vicks vaporizer with water in it for like a month or longer and barely cleaned it out and now it doesnt work no steam or nothing will come out wats wrong is it broken???


The problem is more than likely due to a calcium and mineral build up in the tank and the tubing.
Hopefully, it's not to late to do something about it. So follow the instructions below,

Unplug the unit.

Remove any remaining water from the tank.

Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and pour the solution into the tank. Allow t to sit overnight. In the morning, plug the unit in and turn it ON. If it doesn't start producing steam, turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the tank. Mix more solution as described above, pour it in the tank and allow it to set for 3 or more hours. The plug the unit in and turn it ON. Hopefully, this time, it will start to produce steam. If it does allow it to run until the tank is half empty. Turn the unit OFf and empty the remaining solution from the tank. Refill the the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit until it's empty. That will flush the system.

In the future, I would highly recommend the use of Bottled Distilled Water, rather than using tap water.

If the above didn't solve the problem, it's time to buy a new humidifier and use Bottled Distilled Water in it.

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.

My vicks vaporizor model101 is all limed up and won't steam. The light comes on but no sound or steam. How can I clean it? I can't get it open. I have hard water with lots of lime.


A 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Water run through the system should clean it up. If it's really bad, you may have to do it twice. Just flush out the solution with claer water, before trying to use the Vaporizer, as it's intended.

In the future, due to high mineral content of your water, use Distilled Water. You can buy it by the gallon very inexpensively at pharmacies and grocery stores.

Doesn't seem to turn on when I plug it in.


Feel the body of the train humidifier, I hope it's warm.
Otherwise,. it is not working. Unplug the unit, and check
the power terminal fuse, it could be busted. If it is okey,
then it is the heating element that needs to be replaced.
May this tip help you.

Thick Cloud of Steam


I would say that the beauty of steam is that it has to get through the 100 degree temperature to leave the aqueous state - i.e. to move from a liquid to a gas.

The benefit of that is that any organizums in the water should be killed as a result of that process. Its possible that it smelt musty or old stagnant water smells but to be honest there is little change of harm to the little ones.

Best wishes

Vicks caporiser is spitting water instead of steam


Clean the unti - and do not add salt. I live in a major hard water city...and was amazed at how much dirt the tank collected. I tried adding salt to to stop the spitting, which did make a lot more steam, but did NOT stop teh water spit. I also noticed, with salt added, water in tank would only last 4-6 hours, not the 18-24 hours it should. I just figured it out, and now mine works great again, and does not spit. I cleaned the water tank throughly, several rinses, then wiped out entire inside. If you want it to work like new, you have to keep your tank as clean as new. I am going to start filtering my water that I put in with a double pantyhose I made simply so there no more dirt ~ a clean tank will fix the problem, it did mine :)

No steam comes out


I just took mine apart and cleaned the scale off the heating elements. Filled to the level with hot water and it was steaming good in about 2 mins.
