I'm sure you've read the instructions, but in case you've misplaced or forgot them, to reset the "reset" you have to unplug the humidifier for 5 minutes. The steps are:
1. Turn knob to "reset." 2. Unplug the unit. 3. Refill and replace tank on unit. 4. Wait 5 minutes. 5. Plug unit in and turn knob to "high."
If that doesn't turn the reset light out, re-do all 5 steps.
Hope this helps.

I posted the instructions for cleaning the unit a little while ago, but under a different Crane humidifier product. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t253969-cleaning_instructions

SOURCE: Clean/refill light
My Slant Fin humidifier has a floating, ring-shaped magnetic level that isn't replaceable. You can't even tell it's magnetic until you cut off the piece that prevents the white plastic float from rising past a certain point. It turns out that there is a ring-shaped magnet in the float.
I found that the Refill light would go off when I held a strong magnet near the float device.
So, I have suspended the magnet with string from the top of the humidifier outside the humidifier.
Caution: This fix disables the safety feature inherent in the low level shut off. I wonder why the manufacturer uses material that corrodes?

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.
