No way of knowing, it might but it would depend on what kind of "breathing problem" you have. Try following the users manual in setting the unit up. If you can't find your user's manual, you can download one from here (The start up instructions are on the second page.)

If your using hard tap water, make certain you clean the unit every week with vinegar and water. If your using "soft" water, once a month will usually suffice.
I would also suggest using a 1/2 cap full of a bacteriacide (actual amount on bottle, usually 1 cap full per gallon), which is marketed for this specific application. A single bottle should last for years.

Replace power cord on DR-968 infrared heater.

On most appliances you can swap a cord from any other appliance that you are throwing out. Open up the unit and disconnect the wires (either from crimp style marrettes or crimp push on or crimps with the eyelette) On the housing look for the nylon connector. Pinch this with a pair of pliers and pull out. Putting them back in is tougher but acheivable if you hav patience.

Does not give mist

Try running vinegar through it. This helps to demineralize it. Once it's clean, put salt in it to create more steam.

Just stopped giving mist

Depending upon the hardness of your water supply, humidifiers sometime have to be "primed" to get them going. This information should be contained in the instructions for use

BH 3950 plug overheating

this happens when you have run a heater for a long time on an outlet that is either not giving the heater enough amperage or to much amperage try it in a different room if the problem persists try a different heater.

Output/Fan will not turn no matter what setting the speed control dial is on. Blue light and green light go on when humistat knob is turned. I purchased this humidifier in November and it was working...

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

You either have a defective power switch, or defective motor, your unit is under warrenty, so I suggest you return it..

One of the cells that hold water has a small crack in it and I would like to buy another cell.... its the left side Dr Labelle

I think you would be etter served to just repair that crack - it can be done in minutes with a product called Plastiweld, available at your local auto parts store. Make sure you allow it time to cure as stated in the directions. I have used it on several different jobs and never had a failure.
Good luck!!
