SOURCE: Humidifier mist won't come out of tube

sounds like the small fan that is located in the base isn`t pushing the mist out. unplug it then take all the screws out of the base. there are screws under the black foam stands too. be careful not to touch anything that looks like live wires while you look inside then look inside while it is pluged in. it should turn. check for something blocking it like lint or dirt..you may be able to clean around the shaft with w d 40

SOURCE: sunbeam ultrasonic humidifier runs but produces no mist

It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time. These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.

3. Empty water and minerals from the base ond place in the top rack of the dishwasher. This will remove any sediment and dirt that has accumulated in the base.

Walgreens Dual tank humidifier 2035 stopped working


I've never seen this model, but it would suggest that the unit is unable to function due to either an electrical failure or needs a serious deep cleaning (esp.the part that interacts with the water to form mist.) I would completely empty the unit and clean it, then partly fill the reservoir with 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water and let it sit for 24 hours (possibly longer) to remove any deposits. (Doesn't take much build up to kill the ultrasonic process). Other than that, try calling the manufacturer and see what they will do for you. (Think it's Sunbeam).

Where do I find manual for germgaurdian H3000 humidifier.


http://www.guardiantechnologies.com/product-instruction-manuals/

Germguaridan website.

This manual can be found under discontinued models. This was most likely discontinued because it is very sensitive and quits working too soon because of the ultrasonic sensor.

Loud noise


Try checking the pick up tube that spins from the motor to the resivoir. If this is not seated properly or off balance even just a bit, it can cause your humidifier to sound like a small waterfall. Hope this helps

Aprilaire 760 furnace humidifier makes a loud screeching sound.


A bad circuit board should not make any noises. A bad solenoid valve could make a loud buzzing noise. If the noise is a squealing noise then you have defective bearings in the blower motor.
If you disconnect the low voltage wiring from the solenoid valve and you still hear the noise, then its not the solenoid valve.

Loud "Glonk" when humidifier turns off


Try turning the water valve going to the soleniod down. There may be too much pressure. You may have to replace solenoid one more time after making the adjustment.
