2006 pt cruiser, we changed the thermostat, doesnt overheat all the way but in idle it rises, as long as the rmp gauge is up to about 2 it goes back down until we let of the gas. Pls help!


At idle the water pump turns slowly as compared to when the engine is running at higher rpm. I believe the water pump has lost efficiency, probably due to corrosion of the impeller. If it were mine I'd change the water pump and quite possibly switch to a different type of coolant. Never ever use tap water in a radiator, Always use distilled water in the gallon jugs. They're about 99 cents each at the grocery store. Minerals in tap water calcify and clog the small passages whereas distilled has no minerals and doesn't.

Coffee doesnt taste good anymore


To brew correctly the temp in the machine has to be correct, good filter and good water. All these together should give you a great cup of coffee. I would try distilled water first and see if that helps

How do I clean my humidifier Holmes hm 500? I don't have the manual anymore. Thank you! Jaimee Murphy


If you are trying to descale it of all the mineral build up. The easiest way is to mix a 50/50 1 gallon solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water and pour it in the empty tank. Allow it to sit for a couple of hours (Longer if it's really scaled) . Then turn it ON and run it, until the tank is half empty. Then empty the remaining solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run until it's empty. In the future, it's better to use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Calciom build up from misting condser. Got any ideas withouy damage done to condenser???? GREG


Gregg, make a solution of 50% White Distilled Vinegar & 50% Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any remaining water from the tank, before filling it with the 50/50 solution.
Then, plug the unit in and turn it ON and allow it to run for about 3 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and allow it to sit overnight. The following morning empty the tank and refill it with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and after several minutes of operation, place you hand in front of the misting nozzle to see if you feel any mist. If you do, allow the unit to run until the tank is have empty. Doing this will flush the remainder of the solution from the unit. Empty the remaining Bottled Distilled Water from the tank. I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rather than Tap Water. As it's mineral and calcium free.

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.

How to stop it from spluttering


The sputtering may be caused by a calcium build up the water system. To solve the problem do the following.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

Empty any remaining water from the tank.

Mix a 50/50 solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank).
Pour solution into the tank and allow it to sit for 1 - 2 hours.

Plug the humidifier in and turn it ON. Allow it to run until the tank is only half full. If the sputtering has not stopped, turn the unit OFF and allow the unit to soak over night.

The next morning, turn the unit On and run for 20 minutes. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Pour out the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the unit for an hour. This will flush out the lines. After that, it should run normally.

I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rather than Tap Water.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Filled Watertank; water will not go open valve and go into mister area


It may be clogged with mineral scale. Empty the water that you now have in the tank and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Let it soak for several hours and then turn the unit ON. If it starts working as it should. let it run another 5 minutes, turn it OF and empty the tank. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and allow it to run at least 45 minutes to flush the system. After that, if you do not detect any vinegar odor, you can continue to use the remaining Distilled water.

If the unit didn't work as it should have after several hours of soaking. Turn the unit OFF and let it soak overnight. If this solved the problem, I would recommend that you continue to use Bottled Distilled Water for normal operation, rather than tap water.

Hope this helped solve the problem

I can't find my owners booklet to find how to


Run a mixture of white vinegar and distilled water through (don't iron anything) until the steam ports are clear. Run two loads of distilled water (until you can't smell the vinegar anymore) through. Use only distilled water in it afterward. That will help prevent scale build-up and avoid this cleaning process again.

Maybe the cap is coated with mineral deposits. Do you use ONLY DISTILLED WATER in the iron? If not, minerals from the water could be the cause. Try pouring some CLR or a similar product over the cap and see if that frees it up . If it does, pour some CLR into the iron's tank, and set it to the highest temperature setting. Run the iron over an old towel to help clean the steam vents. Then fill the tank with DISTILLED WATER and do the same proceedure two more times using DISTILLED WATER ONLY to flush out any remining CLR.
