I have a Duracaraft Humidifier DWM-250 series. It was working perfectly fine for 2 days. Then it stopped producing mist. I have cleaned the heating element, not used it for almost 24 hours just in case...
It may have a scale and mineral build up, prior to using bottled water.
To clean it, empty the tank of any water that's already in it and fill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow the solution to sit in the tank for 30 minutes, before turning the humidifier ON. Once the unit is ON allow it to run for at least 30 minutes, then check to see it if it's misting, by holding your hand in front of the nozzle. If it is, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and pour out the remaining solution. Then fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit for one hour. This will allow enough time, for the Distilled Water to flush the system. After that, fill it again with Bottled Distilled Water and use the humidifier as you normally do.
If it didn't start misting when you turned it ON. Allow the solution to set for 3 hours and then try it again.
Hopefully, this will solve your problem. It does 95% of the time. Please let me know if it worked for you. Thanks.
