My SunBeam Warm Mist humidifier stopped producing the mist after I refilled the tank. Power light is one. I have cleaned the mineral deposit as well. Any idea if I can get it working again?

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.

SOURCE: We have a Sunbeam Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier

I have this same problem. And cool mist humidifiers DO produce mist. I have had my humidifier for a while now (6 years) and have never had any problems. But after the most recent cleaning, it worked at first, but now seems to not be working anymore... Am also wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy the situation?

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).

I have a Cool Mist Homedics Ultrasonic humidifier, Model UHE-OC1A that has stopped working...I have cleaned it, the small lights go on when turned on, but no mist is coming out ... ???


In the bottom of the humidifier is a little disk that vibrates to turn water to vapor. This gets covered in mineral deposits and won't vibrate properly. They usually suggest something like vinegar to clean it. I found that this didn't work for me. What did work was cleaning it with my Waterpic on the highest setting. It chipped away the deposits and allowed it to work. HOWEVER, once you get it running again, buy the slant fin mineral absorption pads to keep it running. If you have mineral-rich water like me, you'll go through them quickly, but you also won't have white deposits on your walls anymore.

My unit is not producing mist. I followed all the instructions and tried all of the troubleshooting instructions but have had no results. I am getting no mist


If the instructions didn't mention how to clean the unit of scale and mineral deposits, that's more than likely the problem.

If that's the case, here's what you need to do: Empty the tank of any more that's still in it and mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank with the solution and allow it to set 8 hours or over night. Then tunr the unit on and place your hand in front of the mist nozzle, to see if it's producing mist. If it is, let it run for at least 45 minutes and turn the unit OFF. Empty the remaining solution and refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the unit until the tank is 1/2 empty and refill with more of the Bottled Distilled Water. Now, you're set to go. In the future, I'd recommend that you always use Bottled Distilled Water rather than tap water. As it's mineral and scale free.

Hope this helps to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Can I get a replacement tank for Sunbeam humidifier model #SWM5251


Hi, unfortunately there's nowhere to purchase a replacement tank online. You can buy a new humidifier from Walmart for $25 when they replenish their stock:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sunbeam-Warm-Mist-Humidifier/12356384
Or you can get one for $29.29 branded as Holmes instead of Sunbeam from DrillSpot.com:
http://www.drillspot.com/products/1347166/jarden_consumer-heater_hum_swm5251-um_small_room_warm_humidifier
eBay also currently lists 3 of these humidifiers, being sold for $34.99 each (also branded as Holmes):

Sunbeam ultrasonic cool mist humidifer model 700


The Problem is minerals in the water. Impeller and ultrasonic designs send these minerals into the air. If the water in your area contains a lot of minerals, you will notice them as dust. The EPA does not issue health warnings about minerals in the air, but does recommend using low-mineral water (such as distilled water) in your humidifier. Many ultrasonic models feature a demineralization cartridge that filters minerals out of the water to prevent the dust.

Good Luck.
