Re: medicine

You don't. There are some solutions you can but for it to make sure it doesn'y get slimmy, but that's about it. It works quite well without any medicine, just works great!! Ever since I bought it six years ago my son loves it and his room gets nice and cool and he can sleep and breathe much better at night. Good luck and hoepfully this was helpful to you. Have a nice and pleasant day.

I am sorry but i didn't understand if i need to mix de medicine with water or put in medicine cup. I lost the instructions....thanks

the vapour oil medicine is put in the little reservoir right at the front top on the blue unit that sits on the plastic base... about a tablespoon. It will still be there after use, but it's only oil residue, after the medicine has evaporated with steam. clean it out with paper towel and refill for each use when needed. Only salt is added to the water, not the oil...

I added water and the vicks medicine and no steam

medication was never meant to go into a humidifier. it clogs the transducer. if you can clean the vicks off the transducer plate you might squeeze another season out of it, otherwise by adding medication to the machine you just gave it an early death.

How do I clean my humidifier?

I had the same problem. This will cause the orange reset light to turn on as well. You need to remove the reservoir and the cooling chanber. Under the reservoir there is a locking mechanism that you push to the side. You then pull off the cooling tower. Then you push the locking mechanism in the other direction and remove the steam mechanism. I found a month of build up of "gook" inside. Dump it out and use a scrouring pad to remove it. After this was done, I could smell the vapor from the medicine cup again and it ran all night on the high setting again.

Humidifier leaves a crusty dark substance in water

Discoloration/Black Particles
After use, the water residue in the bottom of the container may contain black particles, and, in
some areas the water and the bottom of container may discolor. These conditions are normal and
do not effect the purity of the steam or medicine. The container is easily cleaned with soap and
water. Rinse and dry the container after cleaning.

This was taken from the manual that comes with the humidifier...

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -

No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!
