If it is an ultrasonic humidifier, it has a little disk about the size of a dime at the bottom of the well where the mist comes out. That metal disk gathers white scale on it, Clean that off. The best way I have found is with a Waterpik turned all the way up.

I have a Vicks, similar, and it recomends a little table salt in the water to create a mist, read your manual and see if this helps. Don't go overboard on the salt, or you'll have old faithful instead of a mist!
From the troubleshooting section of the manual (http://www.crane-usa.com/manuals/HumidifierManual2008.pdf):
The power light is green but there is no
mist being emitted:
? Check that there is water in the tank.
? Check for possible lime deposits on the
water level sensor or the nebulizer (see
page 8 and 9).
? Make sure that nothing blocks the
vapor output slots.
? Check that the fan vent on bottom of
humidifier is not blocked.
? Empty the humidifier and rinse the
water basin with cool tap water and
allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.
If you are having problems getting the vaporizer to work, just add salt to the water (seems so crazy simple but it works!). Also, make sure the removable column is tightly fixed inside; give it a few minutes and it should start to blow.
Depending upon your model, start at the above link and read the instructions. Just click "details" under the model in question.
unplug humidifer, remove top tank, empty all water out of base. dry off.
turn unit upside down.
unscrew five visible screws.
use a screw driver to pull off the black foam foot pads. you will find more screws there.
pull off the base.
look next to the fan, you will see a metal "tower" going up into the reservoir. Is it dirty such as white chalky substance on it? Clean it with cotton swabs. Clean the fan while your at it if needed.
You will see a small gray box with two metal tabs twisted. Untwist them and pull off the top.
On that metal "tower" you will see a small black chip connected to the circuit board where you just removed the metal top. Does black chip have black marks on the circuit board? Mine does. I suspect the "tower" which draws heat from this black chip was no longer able to cool because of the white chalk buildup on the tower, furthermore, the chip became too hot and caused the black chip to overheat (again black marks on the circuit board).
The chip has on it "FTR 02N" and a "54F" at the bottom. I tried doing some basic searching on internet to see if it could be replaced, but didn't find anything.
For those who don't have this problem yet, just keep that metal cooling tower clean.
