I just cleaned mine for the first time, and the instructions are very unclear in the pamphlet on how to do it.
What you need:
One package of EZ Cal cleaner/descaler for humidifiers ( I got mine at bed bath and beyond)
32 oz of hot water
How to clean your unit:
Mix the hot water with the EZ Cal cleaner packet in a separate container.
Remove the tank from the base.
Remove the cleaning brush and the silver stick that is in the base of the unit.
Pour the solution in the base of the unit.
Let the solution sit in the base of the unit for 1/2 hour.
Then take the cleaning brush, and go over the surfaces in the base.
Pour out the solution, and rinse with hot water.
Put the brush and silver stick back into the base.
Put tank back onto the base.
Reset the unit by pushing and holding the power button for a few seconds.
This will stop the cleaning indicator from blinking.
Let the water fill up the filter for a couple minutes, turn on, and your ready to go again.
I hope this was helpful.

When you cleaned it , did you remove water level sensor? If so did you put it back in upside down? The sensor is a plastic cylinder that is held down by a screw and washer.. If you have it in upside down, the empty water red light will be lit,,, if you unscrew the sensor and flip it .. it should start to work again..

It is intersting that several folks seem to be having this problem. In early December 2009 I noticed that the replacement AOS demineralization granules were wet when I opened the sealed metal envelope. I opened a couple of others and they were the same way. After a couple of weeks after replacement, the unit started puffing steam before it stopped altogether. My husband opened the cartridge and said all the crystals were clumped to one side. I emptied out the cartridge and ran it for a few days (about 4) without any crystals until it stopped generating mist altogether. Air still flows and the heater works. But it appears that the ultrasonic disc in the bottom of the unit quit. Not sure if this was all coincidental... Especially when seeing several other people with the same problems over the last couple of months.
Tonight the AOS customer service/tech support said I shouldn't run the unit without the crystals but they appeared to be concerned about the white dust.
Anyway, the AOS U7142 has a three year warranty. If you have a receipt call customer service at 1-800-336-0326 immediately. If it is after three years they said they would charge $60 to fix it.

Ours has done the same thing after only 2 weeks. From article research, it appears that this occurs to everyone after cleaning it with the EZ Cal that is recommended. From looking at our unit and figuring out how it works, it appears as though the Ultrasonic Vibration membrane has stopped working. This particular piece is responsible for vibrating the water and making water mist particles which are blown out with the air. We will be calling the manufacturer on Monday to register a complaint and request a replacement unit.
