    thank for the fast response

    this is brand new humidifier - no marks for any use

    got the filter inside the humidifier - looks new

    how can i have mould?

    maybe it is an old filter??

    The second day of this brand new product an almost smokey smell became VERY noticable in the mist! I rinsed everything out and started over, but it's still there. Should I just return it?

    I have the same issues with my humidifier~ smelly mist that clouds up my house.  The thing is that my house is brand new and so is the unit.  Any suggestion?

    Yup, same problem here. Brand new and the mist smells very bad. Already returned the first one and the replacement has the same problem.

    Brand new unit with new filter installed.

    Hate the smell. quite and vaporizers great...but the darn smell. Not sure if it is hot plastic smell or what, but it is not good.

    consider adding some scent to the darn thing.
