Question about Humidifiers
Remove the mist direction cap (dark plastic piece where the mist comes out.) You should find a small plastic cup with an attached cap. Put the essential oil in the cup, snap on the cap, and put it back into the mist exhaust, and replace the mist direction cap.

if you can take it out side and plug it in, put some bleach in it and let it run for a few minutes. then wash it out and run the rest of it out.

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.
This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.
Barring that, here is the service center contact info:

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

It doesn't look like they sell any replacement parts for this machine. I would call the manufacture and see if they will sell you one.

sounds like the small fan that is located in the base isn`t pushing the mist out. unplug it then take all the screws out of the base. there are screws under the black foam stands too. be careful not to touch anything that looks like live wires while you look inside then look inside while it is pluged in. it should turn. check for something blocking it like lint or dirt..you may be able to clean around the shaft with w d 40
