All the water in the humidifier leaked all over the floor. What would cause this? there was a filter in it


It sounds like the water container wasn't placed on the unit correctly. Need more information as to what type unit you have, before making an informed decision.

I have two questions. How do I properly clean my humidifier and recently it has started coating my furniture with a white powdery film. Why has it started that?


there is some cleaning tablets you can use periodically called protec beads ... cleaning can be done using high acid vinegar soak .. then hydrogen peroxide can be used on any mold .. this unit as well as ultrasonic type models will put out calcium dust if your water has calcium added or is hard water .. calcium is often added to water to give it a good taste .. one way to keep the unit clean for a long time is to use only distilled water .. and make sure there is no calcium added .. (read the small print on the container) .. its hard to clean the fan chamber in this unit .. lots of people complain about the dust .. the wick/filter type humidifiers dont put out dust but the calcium does accumulate on the wick/filter .. so you have to change that frequently (6-9 weeks) .. yours doesnt have a wick but still needs cleaned regularly ..

I only used my machine for just about two weeks (only in the evenings)with a brand new filter and already the top of the filter has turned yellow/brown and brittle. Is it normal to go through a filter so...


how long the filter will last depends on your water .. if your water has a high mineral content then that is left behind as the water evaporates from the filter/wick ... the yellow brown sounds like calcium deposits .. calcium is often added to water to give it a good taste .. that may be beneficial for you but will build up on the filter .. it doesn't hurt much until it starts to clog the voids in the filter material .. as long as air gets thru then the deposits will be ok .. normally the filter should last about 3 months .. if you use distilled water (with no calcium added) then much longer .. if you have hard water then less .. there is a tablet that you can add to the water to reduce the calcium buildup .. the manufacturer of your humidifier will likely recommend that .. thats often available from hardware stores also ..

so your choices are:
1. don't worry about it until the filter becomes clogged
2. use the anti calcium tablet or something like ProTec PC-1 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Cartridge
3. use distilled water for really long filter life
4. plan on replacing the filter every 3 months

other types of humidifiers have other problems .. the hot water type gets calcium deposits on the heating element requiring cleaning a couple times a year, usually with vinegar or a calcium solvent .. that takes awhile..

the Ultrasonic type doesn't generally have problems with internal deposits because it blows moist air out including the calcium .. that produces a fine dust on surfaces in your house ..

of those types the filter system like yours is easier to maintain than the hot water type and doesn't leave dust behind like the ultrasonic all work better and longer if the water is pure .. distilled water doesn't cost much but you have to be careful .. read the small print .. some of it will say "calcium added" .. you don't want that .. if you use only distilled water then the filter should last the whole year ..

Lost the manual. Can tap water be used or just purified water.


We have had a separate make for years and just use tap with no problems.It leaves a water mark on the water holder but it cleans off.If you have a water filter already on your tap or a Brita type container with a filter,feel free to use that too.Either way,it will not hurt the humidifier. Good luck! Greg

Haven't used in over 1 year. Can I just clean the filter?

here is the website that you can order your filter from. now the filter that i'm seeing by your model number of ecm250 is a hwf62. that's the only one i see. now if your model number is different. this website that i posted will have it listed. you just have to type the correct model number in the bar and they will pull up the options for you. if you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.

Dirt in the water tank.


Its from the dust in the air.
It collects on the wet surface inside the humidifier and drains down.
A better air filter on your AC system would help reduce that, what type of filter are you currently using?

Those filters don't last forever! Whenever I had that problem, I just replaced the filter. (The fresh filters also contain some kind of anti-bacterial or anti-fungal, since you're not supposed to add anything to the water which would spray into the air.) My problem has been finding new filters--does Sears still carry them? (The small one I was in recently does NOT.)
