Is there a reset button for this vaporizer?

Similar ones do not have a reset button. If your vaporizer does not heat and steam, it may be because:
The heating element has failed

My vicks vaporizor model101 is all limed up and won't steam. The light comes on but no sound or steam. How can I clean it? I can't get it open. I have hard water with lots of lime.

A 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Water run through the system should clean it up. If it's really bad, you may have to do it twice. Just flush out the solution with claer water, before trying to use the Vaporizer, as it's intended.

In the future, due to high mineral content of your water, use Distilled Water. You can buy it by the gallon very inexpensively at pharmacies and grocery stores.

My vaporizer is barely putting out any there a way to clean this unit so that it will produce more steam? This is a Vicks 1.5 gal unit.

Is the water in your area soft? If so, add a few pinches of salt. Vaporizers boil the water by running electricity through it. If your water is too soft, no electricity and therefore no steam.

If you have hard water, and the unit must be cleaned, try soaking it in vinegar.
