My bell and howell sonic breathe humidifier worked for the first bottle of water and thats it. now i put the bottle on and the steam only comes out if we squeeze the water bottle.

It sounds like a piece of ''something'' fell inside the hole where the bottle goes. Can you check for that?

Is it ''take-apart-able?'' I can pretty much assure you that if you can _see_ the components involved where that bottle makes contact, you will find an obvious problem.

Obviously water is not getting _past_ something, and it really sounds simple to me. (i.e. ''take it apart, find obvious problem and correct it, then reassemble'').

Bottles won't drain, seems to be air pressure issue

not understanding how it works will get you that assumption
the full bottle will slowly empty when the water level in which it sits gets low enough for the atmospheric pressure to displace the water and let in an air bubble
That way there is always water for the unit to work
Same principle as the bottled water drink coolers in the office
putting a hole in the bottle and you will have water all over the floor
you need to check the humidity level of the air because if it is too high then the system will not work and so the bottles will not empty--really simple principle

How do I clean this humidifer? I have the sesame street elmo and friends cool mist humidifier and I cannot find the manual for cleaning instructions. thank you

The outside you can clean with warm soapy water. The inside can be flushed with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank and run the unit until the tank is almost empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill the tank with more of the Bottled Distilled Water. Operate the unit for 30 minutes and the previous solution should have been flushed out by then. I would recommend using Bottled Distilled Water all the time rather than tap water. As tap water has a lot of minerals in it that can cause calcium scale and clog the unit.

Hope this helped you.

When we run the humidifier the waterlevel does not change.

The humidifier and it's tubing may be clogged with calcium deposits and scale. Especially so, if you're using well water or your city's water has high calcium deposits.

Empty whatever water is in the unit and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes and then turn the unit ON. Once you feel moisture coming out, allow it to run anoter 10 minutes or so. Then turn the unit OFF and empty the remaining solution (if any is left). Now, flush the system by filling it with Bottled Distilled Water and running it.

For future use, I'd recommend that you use nothing but, Bottled Distilled Water.

How do I clean it?

If you're asking how to clean the inner workings of the humidifier ... Run a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Water through it. Then flush it with Bottled Distilled Water. As a matter of fact, using Bottled Distilled Water all the time, will cut down on having to clean the unit as often. Distilled water has no minerals and will not produce scale, like tap water.

When i first got it, it was working grate after 3 days it dosent produce much steam as before u can even smell it

The humidifier may be partially clogged with mineral scale. Especially, if you're using well water. It can be cleaned by running the humidifier with with a 50/50 solution of Bottled Distilled Water and White Vinegar in it. Then flushing it with bottled distilled water through another complete cycle.

In the the future, you may want to use Bottled Distilled Water rather than tap water. It's inexpensive (about $1.00 per gallon) and can purchased at most super markets and pharmacies.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Filter lasting only about one week--"needle" almost on Red model SCM3502 cool most humidifier

If your water is well water, more than likely that's the problem. To many minerals and iron. Try cleaning the humidifier with a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and either bottled spring water or distilled water. Fill the tank about half way and run the humidifier until the tank is almost empty. You may want to do this outside in garage if possible, because of the vinegar odor. Then run a full tank of bottled Spring Water or Distilled water through it, to flush out any vinegar residue.

I would highly recommend, that if in fact you're using well water, stop using the well water and switch to bottled spring water or distilled water.

Hope this solves your problem. Please let me know.

Mist coning out leavs white dust all over wood work, why?

More than likely 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.

I would suggest that if you're using well water, switch to using bottled spring water or bottled distilled water. But you'll need to flush out your humidifier first. Use a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and water. Fill the tank about half way and run the humidifier until the tank is almost empty. You may want to do this in a garage, if you have access to one, so that the vinegar odor won't remain in the house. Once this has been accomplished, dump out any of the remaining solution and flush the unit again with bottle spring water or distilled water. That should do the trick

Even if you aren't using well water, since your water supply has a high mineral content. I would strongly encourage you to use bottled spring water or distilled water in the future. By the way, a gallon of Distilled Water cost a lot less than bottled spring water. In my area I can get a gallon of distilled water from CVS Pharmacy or Food Lion for about $1.00.

Good luck. Please let me know if this solved your problem.

One bottle drains completely before the other one?

Normal no, common yes. $10 says the right bottle drains first..... If you want to get the other bottle to drain put a shim under the side that is not draining.
