SOURCE: No water vapor coming out

You might need to check either the water level sensor or make sure that there aren't any deposits on the nebulizer. I just posted the following sections from the manual for another problem:

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly. (I scanned a page from the manual that shows how to dismantle and reassemble the sensor: here)
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

Hope this helps!

1. Remove tank from base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled, or tap water. Water temp should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Return tank to base and let sit for a few minutes. Be sure the filling cap of the tank is tightened firmly.

2. Plug power cord into a 110-120V AC wall outlet only. Turn power switch to "on" position. Power light will illuminate. Turn mist nozzle until desired level is being released. Aim nozzle away from furniture and walls.

3. Always turn humidifier off when water runs* out. Unit will continue to operate when tank is empty.
*Humidifier will run up to 12 hrs on low; 6 hrs on high.

DO NOT LET WATER SIT IN TANK FOR LONG. THIS CAN ENCOURAGE BACTERIAL GROWTH.
Place unit on level surface away from direct sunlight.
DO NOT ADD MEDICATION OF ANY TYPE INTO THE NOZZLE, BASE, OR WATER TANK.
ALWAYS LEAVE ROOM DOOR PARTLY OPEN. DO NOT MOVE, TILT, OR EMPTY WHILE OPERATING.

Mild bleach and water solution for cleaning, never detergent.
Clean every 3rd day during use. Clean after long storage
Humidity varies from room to room. Aim for 30 - 50% relative humidity. If windows/ walls fog or frost, reduce mist intensity. If room too humid, ventilate by opening door or window; adjust mist intensity.

Check the float that is monitoring the water level. Sometimes lime and calcium build up will restrict the motion of the float. If it's a probe level, check to make sure there is no hard water build up on the probes that will restrict continuity from one probe to the other

Humidifier is leaking where the top meets the base. How can I fix this?


The humidifier may be reacting to being overfilled. A little less water fill may cure the problem.

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

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.

How do you fill the venta humidifier I don't have


http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/123738.pdf


Fill Water Tank.

Turn off humidifier and unplug the power cord from A/C outlet. Remove tank from

base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled,

filtered, or tap water. Do not attempt to fill unit through Vapor Nozzle. Water temperature

should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can damage the

unit. Tighten filling cap firmly. Return tank to base and let it sit for a few minutes. For

first time use or when replacing the demineralization cartridge filter, please soak the

filter in warm water for several minutes.

Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist


According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

This next part may or may not be relevant.

- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
