Venta LW44 - KNocking sound and only 1 of the 2 wheels turn

My wife and I purchased several years ago 2 Ventas, an LW24 & LW44. We replaced the plastic twirling mechanism that fits into the gear mechanism and rotates by the motor but the LW44 has always been a problem and now only one wheel of the 2 wheels turns, always the same wheel, and it makes a terrible clicking noise. The little gears on one side of the plastic dual gear assembly do not move at all. On the other side, a larger spike and smaller spike of plastic that turns one of the water wheels turns comes uo periodically while the other side and always that side, moves only for a short while and then stops and the clicking noise begins and one of the 2 water wheels stops turning.

This sound is could mean that the life of the gear has been used up.

This is a common problem. It is easily fixed for $10 + Shipping. The gear needs to be replaced. Try this link to have someone call you.
Remove the gear and turn on the unit to see if the noise still exists.

  • If noise stops, the gear and coupling needs to be replaced

How do you fill the venta humidifier I don't have

Fill Water Tank.

Turn off humidifier and unplug the power cord from A/C outlet. Remove tank from

base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled,

filtered, or tap water. Do not attempt to fill unit through Vapor Nozzle. Water temperature

should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can damage the

unit. Tighten filling cap firmly. Return tank to base and let it sit for a few minutes. For

first time use or when replacing the demineralization cartridge filter, please soak the

filter in warm water for several minutes.

I have a Venta Airwasher LW24 and need a new Gear & Mounting Ring

I have been contacted by A&B Distribution abdistrsupport@gmail .com They have been outsourced by Venta to handle tech support and sales for individual direct customers. The representative I spoke to was extremely knowledgable in the product and very friendly. This is refreshing in this age. He was able to fix my clicking noise by replacing the gear that was under warranty and at the same time suppling me with the additives that I can no longer get from my local Bed Bath and Beyond store.

I am very happy with my investment.

Caring For Your Venta-Sonic Humidifier
Always unplug the unit before cleaning!
When to Clean Your Humidifier
 Clean your humidifier weekly or more often during heavy use, depending on your
individual water quality. Clean your humidifier before storing and after long periods
of storage.
 When cleaning the inside of your unit, keep water away from the air outlet. Exterior
may be wiped with a damp cloth when unit is off and unplugged.
Cleaning the Oscillator and Water Sensor
 Turn off the unit and unplug power cord. Remove tank from base and empty
reservoir in base. Use cleaning brush provided in base to clean off mineral deposits
and sediment from oscillator and water sensor. Do not scrape or clean with tools
that have metal parts. Be careful to not damage the surface of the oscillator.
ATTENTION: Damage to the oscillator may cause the unit to not work properly.
 The oscillator (ultrasonic transducer) is highly sensitive. Keep this important part
clean and treat gently. Do not touch the oscillator while the unit is operating.
 Do not use soap, cleaning agents, detergents, or other chemicals for cleaning the
tank and humidifier.
 After cleaning fill water tank (see instructions above) and return tank to base.
Storing the Venta-Sonic
Switch off and unplug power cord from A/C outlet. Empty remaining water from base
and tank. Clean tank and unit (see for instructions above). Make sure all parts are
thoroughly dry—allow at least 24 hours to dry. Leave the filling cap of the tank
loosened. This will keep the cap and gasket from sticking together. Pack Venta-Sonic
in original packaging and store in a cool and dry place.

Good Luck.

Drum does not turn

The rubber coupling is slipping. You may have a problem with the gear case; you can get a new one by calling Venta at (888) 333 8218. But it's possible that the rubber coupling is simply not seated properly. Snap the gear box out and make sure the socket is clean. When you put it back make sure that the coupling post is fully inserted in the drive socket. Hope this works for you ... Venta will supply new parts promptly if you decide you need them.
