Then id not plug it in again , the breaker goes telling you there is a fault in the device , also could be too many items on that breaker , ive got an ole vaccum that will trip my breaker out if I run my radio and try to clean up at same time , but will not trip if I switch radio off b4 use .got to be such a bother that I stuck a post-it on vac that says "radio" just to remind me to switch it off b4 I clean up , saves me from running down three flights of stairs to reset it !!!

When i plug it in it blows the trip switch in my house, it worked fine the first time but now this is all it does, can you advise as to what the problem could be please

You have a short in there and that accounts for the tripping circuit breaker. If the insulation on the heating coil has gone that could be a good reason for the issue. Open it up and look for the short.

I live in the Caribbean where the voltage is 220/240 so I need to know what size transformer I need to use with a 5.8amp Vicks vaporizer

Hi, you would need one that's around 1400 watts (watts = volts x amps so 240 x 5.8 = 1392)
I hope that helps.

Where do i put the vicks in a vicks humidifier

you have to open the lid to the scent pad heater tray. the vicks pads go inside of there. now if you touch them with your hands you need to immediately wash hands after. cause of the fumes will be very strong. then close unit and turn on and it should work properly
