It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time.
These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.

SOURCE: 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.

I was up all night with this since I just purchased it yesterday and I wanted to be certain that there wasn't some simple alternative to returning the humidifier since the reset light keeps going on immediately after I turn the unit on AND I've already followed all the directions to the T. Believe me - I was ready to return it cause ain't no 38.99 worth me doing all this tinkering and trying to figure out why they couldn't make the unit correctly cause apparently A-LOT of people have this problem. If it wasn't for my three children being so ill including myself getting sicker going out to purchase the humidifier and I was trying to avoid going back out to further compound my illness----I WOULD have just returned it. MAYBE I still will return it. ANYWAY, here's the deal: the water in the tank SHOULD flow into the boiling chamber where of course steam rises from there; however, the WATER VALVE in the CAP to the water tank does not allow any water to flow into the boiling chamber because it is so tight. The reset light goes on as if there was no water in the tank because of course, the heater is on, but no water is getting boiled because the water can't get in. There are a few things you can do. First: the water valve is a little stick and a spring within a piece of rubber that can be slipped out of the cap (this is what I chose to do). Now the water flows easily and even with the unit set to high, there is no problem. It just works. Second: You could remove ONLY the stick and spring from the water valve's rubber piece. This would work if the hole in the rubber piece happens to allow steady water flow (mine wouldn't). Third: you could probably do some cutting til you were satisfied with the results.

SOURCE: humidifier not working
Ensure there is water in the tank.
The solution: push up on that small rubber gasket so that it is as far up and away from the screw cap as it can be without falling off, and voila! you get mist!!
