It runs but does not put out any mist.


You didn't specify the brand or model, but for generic advice, try using a strong solution of white vinegar and water and soak overnight or for several days (if very scaled up).

If you were using hard water in the humidifier, try using a commercial humidifier cleaner such as BestAir products (or similar - there are many to choose from): Amazon com BestAir 3US 6 UltraTreat Ultrasonic Vaporizer Water Scale...
(Make certain it's certified for steam and/or ultrasonic use, if your using that type of humidifier).
Follow directions on box. You will have to let soak for a period of time (hours/days) to allow chemicals to do their thing.

If you are using "soft" conditioned water, just refill with soft water and allow to sit for several hours, then discard and refill. The hardened minerals will re-disolve and will be removed when you flush the unit. For hardened minerals clinging to the sides, etc, just use your fingers to break up, possibly a brush or Dolby pad and break them loose.

(Soft water has just as much minerals as hard water, but in hard water there are mostly calcium based and turn rock hard and in soft water they are sodium based (sodium bicarbonate actually) and have a weak structure).

It's important to keep a humidifier clean of deposits, not just to keep the unit running, but to avoid air quality problems (bacteria will cling to scale buildup, which make excellent breeding grounds for them).

If you use "hard" tap water, clean (at a minimum) once a week. Use white vinegar and water - 50/50 mix. If your using "soft" conditioned water, clean once a month. Same with distilled water.
You could also consider using a small amount of bactericide in the water to prevent bacteria from growing. (Okay for filter type humidifiers, but DO NOT use in ultrasonic or vaporizer type humidifiers). 1/4 cap full should suffice. BestAir 3BT 6 Original BT Humidifier Bacteriostatic Water Treatment 32 oz

Inherited a Welbilt Ultrasonic humidifier and after reading all of the "sensativity" issues want to make sure to clean it properly....no paperwork came with machine.

Rinse well. To disinfect and get rid of discolorations, soak in a little bleach and water. Rinse well. A little secret from my pediatrician, use 1/4 tsp bleach with a full tank of water in use. It kills germs, bacteria and gives the mist a fresh smell. It makes

Humidifier Water antibaterial additive


Hello. Humidifier water tanks must be regularly disinfected to remove the presence of bacteria and reduce the risk of mold spores. Carefully remove the screw-on cap, fill with cool water and add a tablespoon of household bleach to the water. Replace the cap and set aside for 20 minutes. Once done, empty the water tank, rinse thoroughly with clear cool water, and wipe the outside with a soft damp cloth and you are good to go. Do this once per week. Regards, Joe

I have discovered mold growing inside the chamber that mist emits from. how do i thoroughly clean it. how often should i clean it?


The best thing around your house is bleach, it kills mold dead. Mold needs moisture, food, air so removing any one of those will kill it. I would try cleaning with soap and water with a little bleach every two weeks and see how it goes, they increase or decrease the time between cleanings as determined necessary. Remmeber bleach stains anything it comes in contact so be careful with it.
Good Luck,

How do I clean my hunter humidifier 33201? the filter blocks have white calcium? built up. I have sick kids and want it to be clean and running properly.


Soak the filters in a solution of 8 oz of white vinegar per gallon of water for about 20 minutes once per week and rinse well.

Better yet, do this once every 2 weeks, and on the off weeks soak the filters in a beach and water solution (rinse well) to keep the mold and bacteria growth from becoming a problem. I also add about a teaspoon of vinegar or a teaspoon of bleach (one or the other, not both at the same time) to the water when I fill the tank.

That helps keep the calcium scale from forming and it keeps the unit itself MUCH cleaner.

No manual for Bonaire humidifier BCM 4510-U


If someone put it togetherm you can take it apart.
See if the dicharge grill slides up and the bottom vcan be pulled out like a window screen. If so, ,other panels may also do so in order to access the internals, Unplug unit when in the water or around fan. Do not run unit without panels in place. Any fan cleaning use something like 409 spray and rinse off with a spray bottle also. Keep water out of all and any electrical. Rinse and leave no cleaner in humidifier to be mixed with misting. Good Luck

Odor


First, clean or replace the filter. Next, mix a very weak solution (40:1 ratio) of bleach and water to fill the unit. the bleach will kill any bacteria that could be causing the odor, but NOT harm anyone, The filter will take care of any hard water issues. Just don't make the mistake of thinking "If a weak solution is good, a strong one is better". NOT TRUE. Stay with the 40:1 mix unless you like breathing bleach. (Yuk) Note: It may take a couple of days for the odor to go away.

Makes a dripping water sound continously


Most likely you do not have the humidifier assembled properly. Mine did that and I found out that not all of the parts were fully in their final position.

Problem: My water always has nasty particles floating in the water and the inside of the humidifier has a snot-like substance on the inside. The humidifier is supposed to be care-free for life time. What's the deal?
