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.

SOURCE: I have air-o-swiss humidifier. Recently I cleaned

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..

SOURCE: Air-o-Swiss room humidifier (model 7142) No mist flows

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.

SOURCE: Air-o-swiss 7135 humidifier not misting

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.

Flashing red flight


Its probably the cleaning light that comes on periodically to remind you to clean the unit. Shut off the unit AND when you do so hold down the power button for several seconds until the flashing red light shuts off. The cleaning light should stay off until the next cleaning is due.

Per the Air-O-Swiss FAQ:

Q: Cleaning light is flashing (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: Switch the unit OFF and unplug it. Empty the water in the base. Rinse the base with hot/clean water. Do not submerge the base! Visually inspect the base for dirt or mineral build up. If soft water is used decalcifying the unit every 4 weeks with EZ Cal is suggested. If hard water is used the unit should be decalcified every 2 weeks. Do not forget to reset the clean light after resetting the unit.

Q: Reset cleaning light (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: The cleaning light does not automatically reset. Hold down the power button (button A in instruction manual) until the light stops flashing. The light automatically comes on approximately 14 days after plugging in the unit.

My air-o-swiss 7142 humidifier keeps giving me the empty indicator light to signify no water in the unit even though the base and the tank are full. If I try to reset it comes on for seconds and then shuts...


The water sensor is a float in the mister area of the base. The float is off in one corner with a little plastic barrier around it and translucent cap over it. Make sure the float can more freely. If the float can move up and down but the light stays on, the reed switch (a switch controlled by a magnet built into the float) inside the unit might have been knocked loose, damaged or disconnected. The switch is actually inside the post that the float slides on, but it can only be accessed from the underside - inside the unit.

Runs for a few minutes then stops


Forget the visually appealing white mist humidifiers that leave you with a white slime to clean up. Get yourself a warm mist humidifier without the hassle, works better and no mess to clean up!

How to clean air-o-swiss humidifier?


Gererally according to the booklet in the box.
If you no longer have those instructions, simply clean out the
basin, make sure no mold, dust, hardwater or calcium is deposited.
Use a 10% bleach water solution to kill bacteria, and thats is basically it.
Just dont miss any spots, but humdifiers should be cleaned every few uses.

The humidifier doesn't make enough vapor


Soak it with vinegar for several hours then use a soft nylon bristled brush to scrape off the minerlized crust and rinse. You probably need to replace the silver stick & mineralization cartridge more often.
