Question about Vicks 1.0 Gallon Warm Mist Humidifier - V745-A
Posted by Anonymous on
The heating element casing on which the buildup grows is made of an aluminum alloy that is originally black anodized which looks like plastic, but you should take care to not scratch the protective black anodize because over time it will corrode and makes a rough finish. It is not important to remove all the scale on the eating element, but only what falls off. You may let the element soak into vinegar or "CLR" cleaner from within the humidifier underneath pan such that would not need to scrub as it will dissolve and fall off. You have to rinse the pan and the eating element after soaking. If the layer of scale left is a thin that is OK, the water will go through as it is porous so the humidifier will continue to work normally. Keep in mind that the eating element is designed with a thermal protection built-in such that if the layer of scale is too thick to transfer the heat into the water, it will shut down by itself until it has cooled down enough.
