Humidifier filled with water, but red light is on


If you overfill it, the red light goes on. just dump a little out and it should go green. Worked with my crane duck humidifier. Hope it helps

Hi. It keeps going from the green light to the red light so its not generating any moisture. It does this on its own sometimes it runs for a while and sometimes it does it right away. Any idea what is...


This is usually a problem with the water float. Clean the float and assembly (see the instruction manaul) and that should fix it. The light is coming on cause the unit 'thinks' there is no water.

The unit works for a few minutes (green light) and then stops - is typical of a float that sticks when it gets to the bottom. So pay attention to that part of the assembly or the bottom of the float having grime or buildup.

Humidifier stopped working after cleaning.


It started working again on its own. Not much of a solution!

I think some water must have got into the electronics and then once it dried, the humidifier started to work again.

Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist


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.

This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.

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:

- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.

- 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.

Air-O-Swiss 7133


Okay, I just started getting this same deal with my 7133 on it's third season. I found in a blog that if you hold down the button that controls the heat while turning the mist knob on, it resets the machine. It worked. The red light went green and I turned off the heat button for cool air and the upper light still stayed green. Fingers crossed this continues to work. good luck!
