My Sharper Image cool mist humidifier is not putting out any mist. I am wondering if it needs something cleaned or replaced and, if so, what needs to be done.

If this unit is an ultrasonic mist device, the mist element could be defective. They should be quiet, but still purr along and provide ma mist. The best bet it to contact the manufacturer and if under warranty, replace the system.

I have the HD15 how do you clean it latly everything is covered in a chalky mist in the room?


If you are not TOTALLY SATISFIED... and that has
the SHARPER IMAGE price tag...
(in y opinion... I would return it to SHARPER IMAGE
and us the REFUND to buy 3 to 5 equivalent units ...
(like HoMedics) for a whole lot LESS...!!
(in my opinion)).

More units... less WATER spritzing around =

I sincerely believe... the "chalky" you speak of is
merely a product of the CALCIUM level in your
water... and a mist type of humidifier. Nothing
wrong with your humidifier (follow owner manual
cleaning instructions) BUT what you see is normal
Sharper Image EV HD15 Instruction Manual Page 3

THE VISIBLE "mist" Your humidifier puts out are
solid water drops... It WILL mark whatever it
lands on...

I think there ARE things you could try...
Obviously turning down the humidifier to
merely moist... rather than SPRITZING water
on everything (solid/visible).

Spread the load between multiple machines
(as described above)

Perhaps...filtered water might help

Dietary CALCIUM is a very good thing... and humidity
is much more warm and comfortable... but the combination
is going to give you those SAME results...

But at those SHARPER IMAGE prices I would

Sonic breathe does not mist?

Find out where the mist is supposed to escape from inside the unit. Clear the airway.

It has stopped working. How do I clean it. Can the element be washed with soap?

Best way to clean it is with vinegar, it will break up the mineral deposits I'm sure the element has on it. If it is like mine the element is covered in white scale, and has stopped working. May not be worth the effort though, my element is now completely clean but the unit still auto-shuts off after about 5 min.

Hello! please advise what will happen if unit is left running & is out of water?

If the float valve in the water tank is not working properly, by shutting off the unit when it's empty, Leaving it running will probably burn up the pump motor.

No mist!

unfortunately on a cool mist unit the mist shouldn't show up. on most units that's what it does. the warm mist units show the mist.. the best way to tell is if you put your hand over the spout that the mist is suppose to come out of for about 2 minutes and you pull it away and it feel clammy then it's working. if your hand is still dry please let me know and i'll see what else i can do for you.
