Humidifier spits out water rather than steam.


Descale the boiler. You do that by putting vinegar in as you would water, start the machine until is starts spitting water then turn off for 30 or so minutes. Turn it back on and let it run. If it stops spitting, dump out the vinegar and flush the boiler with water until you no longer smell vinegar.

I have hard water, plugged it in, no steam. Added salt, no steam. What to do?


I have hard water as well and I wasn't getting steam. I put in a good tablespoon of salt and the steam started immediately. Try more than a pinch (if that's all you put in originally)

Hi have a vicks warm steam vaporizer model v188. works great, just wanting to clean it. Can't find my manual anywhere.


The easiest ans simplest way to clean it, is too mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar & Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and fill the the tank with the solution. Allow it to set for 30 minutes, then turn the unit ON. Allow it to run, until the tank is half empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill with the Bottled Distilled Water Turn the unit ON and run until the tank is almost empty. Following these instruction will remove all the lime and calcium build up in the unit.

Tip: Using bottled Distilled Water rather than Tap Water, will totally eliminate calcium and lime buildup.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My vapourizer is not steaming, why?


The most likly cause is a build up of mineral and calcium around the heating element. If you can remove cover around element then you can clean by gentle brushing. Some units require the use of a torx driver to disassemble. Otherwise clean around cover and steam outlet and run about 1/8 teaspoon of salt with full container of water. If you can get it started to steam then do this several times then rinse out and refill with about 1/2 cup of pure vinegar and water. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

My vaporizer is barely putting out any steam...is there a way to clean this unit so that it will produce more steam? This is a Vicks 1.5 gal unit.


Is the water in your area soft? If so, add a few pinches of salt. Vaporizers boil the water by running electricity through it. If your water is too soft, no electricity and therefore no steam.

If you have hard water, and the unit must be cleaned, try soaking it in vinegar.

Dec 06, 2009 - found solution: if unit is truely clean, unplug unit then mix about a teaspoon of iodized salt (table salt) to the water. Reconnect unit wait about 1 - 2 minutes, unit will start to make a grinding sound but shortly after steam will produce.

How do you clean the vaporizer?


Take it apart, and UNPLUG IT. soak the blades in vinegar for about 30 minutes. That will soften the deposits. Wipe clean and if necessary, repeat. rinse and it's ready to use.

Thick Cloud of Steam


I would say that the beauty of steam is that it has to get through the 100 degree temperature to leave the aqueous state - i.e. to move from a liquid to a gas.

The benefit of that is that any organizums in the water should be killed as a result of that process. Its possible that it smelt musty or old stagnant water smells but to be honest there is little change of harm to the little ones.

Best wishes
