Make sure that the filter is VERY snug into the bottom of the humidifier, and that the tank is on correctly. We had the same problem :)

Part of the reason why you don't see any mist is because it's a cool mist humidifier. normally all cool mists do not produce that moisture that you would see in a warm mist unit. if you have any other concerns about the product please feel free to ask.

I have the HD15 how do you clean it latly everything is covered in a chalky mist in the room?


Hello FREIDA GRAYDEN,

If you are not TOTALLY SATISFIED... and that has
the SHARPER IMAGE price tag...
(in y opinion... I would return it to SHARPER IMAGE
and us the REFUND to buy 3 to 5 equivalent units ...
(like HoMedics) for a whole lot LESS...!!
(in my opinion)).

More units... less WATER spritzing around =
HAPPY FREIDA (I think).

I sincerely believe... the "chalky" you speak of is
merely a product of the CALCIUM level in your
water... and a mist type of humidifier. Nothing
wrong with your humidifier (follow owner manual
cleaning instructions) BUT what you see is normal
Sharper Image EV HD15 Instruction Manual Page 3

THE VISIBLE "mist" Your humidifier puts out are
solid water drops... It WILL mark whatever it
lands on...

I think there ARE things you could try...
Obviously turning down the humidifier to
merely moist... rather than SPRITZING water
on everything (solid/visible).

Spread the load between multiple machines
(as described above)

Perhaps...filtered water might help

Dietary CALCIUM is a very good thing... and humidity
is much more warm and comfortable... but the combination
is going to give you those SAME results...

But at those SHARPER IMAGE prices I would
expect YOU to be TOTALLY SATISFIED.

Wont run in unit lift out and lift level control works fine put it back in unit [ very tight fit] lift level control wont work


Hello.

The GE humidifier adds a continuous stream of cool mist intothe air, giving moisture to dry air due to cold weather or dry climate or tohelp those who desire additional moisture because of respiratory problems orallergies. Sold online and in many department or home retail stores, thehumidifier requires regular cleaning and maintenance for proper functioning andto help keep mineral scale or bacteria from growing in the humidifier. ·1 Connect the power cord on the GE humidifier firmly to a power outlet if thehumidifier is not working. Replace or reset the circuit breaker as necessary.Turn the power switch to "On" if there is power but the unit is notoperating. · 2 Fill thewater tank to the "Fill" mark if the mist output is low or notpresent. Wait 15 minutes after filling the tank and before starting thehumidifier to allow the wick filter to absorb the water for proper function.Turn the humidistat knob to a higher setting for higher output. · 3 Check the capon the water tank and close the cap firmly. Check the rubber tank cap ring onthe cap and reseat firmly to help provide a better seal. · 4 Replace thewick filter with a new wick filter, available through General Electric, if thewick filter inside the base turns brown. Replacement parts may be ordered bycalling 877-207-0923. · 5 Clean thewater tank with vinegar and a soft brush if the water begins to get cloudy.Rinse well before refilling with water. Use cold water in the tank, as warm orhot water may make the water appear cloudy. · 6 Loosen thetank cap slightly if the humidifier cycles on and off unexpectedly. Turn theknob to a higher or lower setting. Thanks.

I got the Crane Cool Mist humidifier - drop shape in blue. Although i can feel a small amount of air coming out from the spout, mist is not visible, not a bit.


if you can hear the fun noise, you need to check major circuit, should be bad capacitor. if no noise at all, replace the fun.
actually they have very good customer service. just contact by email or phone, tell them what's happened, they should give you a RMA number, put the tank cap and cut small piece of power cable, send to them, you will receive a brand new humidifier within couple weeks. even your machine slightly out of warranty.

Why does my humidifiers does not have any smoke coming out?


My Guess is that the reletive humidity in the room is not low enough to see any vapors coming from the machine. Normaly you won't see these anyway. Some models in the stores seem to make more mist than what you get at home. If the humididty level in a room is close to what is coming out of the machine there will be no signs of any mist coming out. Just make sure the filters are clean and check and make sure the water level is going down on the machine and this will tell you its workin. the faster you are using the water in the tank the more you are putting in the air! If this is a hot mist machine then I would say the heating element in the machine is not working.

Iron/rust in water


You can use distilled water to fill your humidifier that would save your filters.
Or you can try soaking your filter in a 50-50 water and white vinegar solution to try and clean them to use again.

Good Luck.

Fan runs but no moisture


According to the manual, there may be a problem with your water level sensor. According to the manual:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

I scanned in the page from the manual that shows how to dismantle, clean, and reassemble the water level sensor here.

If that doesn't work, you can try contacting the manufacturer:

Fan is running but humidity is not changing


Q: My unit has been running for several hours. I hear the fan spinning, but I do not notice the water level in the tank decreasing.
A:
First, check the filter to ensure it is wet. If the pad appears dry, remove it from the Base and gently rinse under cool water. Reposition wet filter in the Base. You may also want to note the current moisture level in your home. If the humidity level is over 60% the unit will not put out much moisture
as your air is already saturated.

UV bulb and filter are user replacement items

see manual from my other post

Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 You should notice moisture on the widows in the room after unit has run for awile, this unit carries a 3 year warranty. More info coming...

4b54ac1.jpg Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 If water level in tank is dropping and fan runs then I'd say it is working.

OK?
Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 20, 2008 Q: I hear the fan turning, but I don’t see any mist. Is my humidifier operating properly?
A:
Dry air is pulled through the system and a fan disperses invisible, moisture balanced air. There is no
“mist” emitted. When operating normally you will feel only cool air coming from the unit. Monitor the
water level in your Tank/ Base. If you notice a decrease in the Water Tank over 24 hours then the unit
is operating normally.
