    Thanks Guru! Was able to pull up the 2 units (1 w water and 1 housing the fan) and clean everything out. Sprayed the fan w Fantastiic & spray rinsed everything out - careful to avoid getting any water in the LCD display section. Figured that since I am putting it in storage for the summer, it will dry out thoroughly and we'll see what happens when I set it up next winter!

If someone put it togetherm you can take it apart.
See if the dicharge grill slides up and the bottom vcan be pulled out like a window screen. If so, ,other panels may also do so in order to access the internals, Unplug unit when in the water or around fan. Do not run unit without panels in place. Any fan cleaning use something like 409 spray and rinse off with a spray bottle also. Keep water out of all and any electrical. Rinse and leave no cleaner in humidifier to be mixed with misting. Good Luck

Only one fan working


There are two causes of your problems:
1. The fan needs you to manually turn it to start running.
Problem: The motor bearings both ends are dried out.
Solution:
1. Remove the motor/fan from the motor housing (there are two screws that hold the motor to the housing. The only way I know how to get to the screw is to bend one of the fan blade up and use a long screw driver to get to the screws.
2. Remove the two screws that hold the bearings to the motor.
3. Detach the bottom bearing (opposite of the fan end.) You might have to use a flat screw driver to pry the bearing off.
4. Use a Q-tip and soak it with motor oil or grease then lubri- cate the fan end shaft/bearing.
5. Use a Q-tip + alcohol to clean up the bottom bearing hole, then lubricate it with grease or motor oil.
6. Put the motor and bearings back together and make sure that the fan can turn freely now.
7. Install the motor/fan back into it housing.
The fan should turn on its own without you helping it.
If the fan won't turn, you have a bigger problem. See below.

2. The fan won't turn at all and is really tight even when you try to
turn it by hand.
Problem: The transformer coil(s) is/are burnt out. Chances are you let the fan run dry to a point that it squealed and started to smell like it was burning before it quit all together.
Solution 1:
1. Remove the filters and their housing on the bad fan side.
2. Duct tape a piece of plastic over the bad fan opening.
3. Run the humidifier with one fan. It works just as well.

Solution 2:
1. Buy a new humidifier.
2. Make sure you lubricate the bearings as soon as the motor begins to squeal.

Solution 3: You need knowledge of electricity
1. Take the motor/fan out from the housing.
2. Use a vote meter to check the resistance in both coil of the transformer; should read about 17 ohms. The coil(s) that has a high reading or if the meter shows 'OL' is bad. Remove the Yellow tape from the coil to see if you have a loose soldering joint between the coil wiring the electrical cord. If yes, solder the joint back together, check the resistance again to make sure you have about 17 ohms. If the answer is yes, put the yellow tape back on the coil and use electrical tape to secure the tape. Hopefully, the fan should work now. Good luck!

Hunter humidifier 33251 - is there any way grill on the top covering the fan can be removed in order to clean fan blades?


According to the Owners Manual, there's no way remove the top covering the fan. Just clean with a damp cloth and then wipe it draw. However, before wiping it with a damp cloth, you may want to try blowing out the sections of the grill with some canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). Or use a vacuum cleaner with a hose and brush attachment. After doing that, wipe with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth.

If you need a copy of your Owners Manual, you can download and print it from the following website:

Model 758743300c no humidy


'No Humidity'-- sounds like the humidifier is NOT adding moisture to the room it is running in?

Can you give us some clues?--
Like-- How is the pad look inside?
Are the fan(s) running?
are there any indicator lights lit?
Did it work for awhile, and stop?
What stopped first?-- the fans, or the little rotating wheel?
any clues that happened at the time it quite?
When was the last time the unit was opened up and cleaned out?
These devices need regular maintenance-- they build up mold and scale.

Please give us some clues to work with--

Filters can get dirty pretty quick with the use of tap water. I attached the manual for you so that you can clean it.
Personally, i replace my humidifier filter at least once every 2 months.

Good Luck.

No water vapor coming out


You might need to check either the water level sensor or make sure that there aren't any deposits on the nebulizer. I just posted the following sections from the manual for another problem:

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
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.
- 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.

Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly. (I scanned a page from the manual that shows how to dismantle and reassemble the sensor: here)
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:
