Walgreens Dual tank humidifier 2035 stopped working


I've never seen this model, but it would suggest that the unit is unable to function due to either an electrical failure or needs a serious deep cleaning (esp.the part that interacts with the water to form mist.) I would completely empty the unit and clean it, then partly fill the reservoir with 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water and let it sit for 24 hours (possibly longer) to remove any deposits. (Doesn't take much build up to kill the ultrasonic process). Other than that, try calling the manufacturer and see what they will do for you. (Think it's Sunbeam).

Why does my humidifier make the floor all wet


You may be over filling the unit. Take the refillable water tank out and with the power removed try to remove all the extra water where the tank goes. check for anything that looks cracked inside the unit the best you can. If the tank is seating properly it should not leak. If it is filled properly it should not leak.

I HAVE A vICKS VAPORSIOR AND HAVENT USED IT VERY OFTER THERES no STEAM COMMING OUT EVER I USE COLD WATER DON'T FILL ABOVE THE FILL LINE I ALSO CLEANED IT REALLY GOOD WITH CLOROX. aNY SUGGESTIONS???


The unit may simply has a calcium scale build up and it's blocking the water passage. To clean it, empty in water remaining in the tank. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water and fill the tank. Allow it to soak for at least one hour, then turn the unit ON. Place you hand in front of the misting nozzle to see if it's working. If you don't feel any mist, turn the unit OFF and allow it sit over night. If you do feel mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty Turn the unit OFF, pour out the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the humidifier until it's empty. This will flush the system entirely. In the future, I would recommend you use Bottled Distilled Water, instead of Tap Water. If you do, you won't have to descale the unit any more.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

I turn the humidifier on l or ll. The light is grean but it is not releasing steam or anything. I don't hear a noise and the water level stays the same.


The humidifier may be clogged with a calcium scale build up. Especially, if you use well water or your municipal water supply has a high chemical content.

To solve this problem do the following. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any water that is currently in the tank and fill it with the 50/50 solution. Allow at least one hour, before turning the unit ON. After turning it ON place you hand in front of the mist nozzle to see if any mist is being generated. If it's generating mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Then turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the remaining solution. Refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run until the tank is empty.

If the unit did not produce mist after one hour of soaking, allow it to set over night and then follow the procedure above. Generally, an overnight soaking will do the trick. In the future, I recommend using Bottle Distilled Water rather than your tap water.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hello! I have a 33201 Hunter Humidifier and for some reason does not run. It turns on (light comes on) and I can hear a faint hum if I put my ear to the unit... but again it does not come on. It does...


Hi, Mark! It may be clogged with a calcium scale build up from the tap water you use. Unplug the unit and empty any water that is the tank.Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Mix enough to fill the tank. Let it soak for 2 to 3 hours and turn the unit ON. If it starts functioning as it should, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. If it doesn't operate as it should, allow it to soak overnight. And try again, following the procedure above. After it has run to the 3/4 empty point, turn the unit OFF. unplug it and dump the remaining solution. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run again, for at least 2 hours. This with flush the system of the vinegar and water solution.

To avoid having this problem again, always use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.

Hope this helps to solve the problem. Have a Happy Easter!

My vaporizer has stopped making steam. It's only a couple months old. Help!


It probably has a calcium and mineral deposit buildup, that has clogged the unit. Especially, if you're using well water to fill the tank.

To solve this problem, empty the tank of any water that may still be in it and mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank with the solution and let it sit for i hour. Then turn the unit ON and let it run, until it starts producing humidity. Once it does, wait 10 minutes and turn the unit OFF and empty any remaining solution from the tank. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit for 10 minutes. This will flush the system of the Vinegar and Water solution. It's best to empty the tank again and refill with Bottled Distilled Water and use the humidifier as you normally would. I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water from now on. This will eliminate any future calcium and mineral buildup and having to flush the unit repeatedly.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know.

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

Waters tanks never empty


Either you have no wick/filters or they are installed incorrectly. Tanks should empty within hours.

Left Tank won't empty


Eureka! Solved my "left bottle not emptying" problem. The problem was not with the bottle but that the top of unit which houses the on/off switch was not seated properly. It takes only a very slight difference in water level for the float to activate the switch, therefore if the top is raised even 1/4" the unit will shut off before the water level is low enough to allow the left bottle to drain.
