Re: Honeywell HCM 560 Cool Mist Humidifer

If the unit is not working and the add water icon is blinking (looks like a drop of water) try this procedure. Unplug the unit and remove the cover. Inside the base unit is a plastic float, make sure the top of the float is not bent because it trips the microswitch which is in the cover. Use a small tool and activate the microswitch a few times to make sure it is not stuck in the off position. This worked for me.

I used to see mist coming out of the humidifer. Just set up for this year, changed the filter, etc. and there's no mist coming out. Is this ok?

No you probably have scale around the heater thus not heating the water warm eneough. The water trough is located in the bottom of the unit and it gets covered with scale you can sometimes crumble it off with your fingers. Sometimes you have to use a cleaner on them too. Me personally on mine I clean it with a flat blade. I have cleaned mine twice this year as I have hard water

Family Care cold mist humidifer

cool mist humidifiers don't put out any mist. only the warm ones do. now if you put your hand over the area where it's coming out for about 2 minutes and take it away your hand should feel damp. almost clammy. if it feels like that the unit is working fine. so your not doing anything wrong. if you have any other concerns please let me know.
