Take it apart, and UNPLUG IT. soak the blades in vinegar for about 30 minutes. That will soften the deposits. Wipe clean and if necessary, repeat. rinse and it's ready to use.

My vaporizer is running however there is no steam coming from the machine. Ran all night and used no water does it need cleaned or should i just replace it. thank you


Well, let's consider what we have:

How old is the vaporizer?-- Could the heating coil be all limed up?
Lime-Away, or Vinegar might help clear the Calcium and mineral build up on the heating element-
Or there might be a bad connection?-- Do you have any lights lit?

Open it up, and tell us what you find-

Vaporizer is spitting water


You added too much salt. Clean it out, start over with less salt.

My vaporizer is barely putting out any steam...is 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.

This vaporizer is supposed to run for 10 - 12 hours, and mine only runs for about 5. What can I do to change this?


clean out any deposits with white vinigar (soak for a few hours) or use a special cleaner for this ... the deposits will keep the unit from using all the available water .. if it is using all the water in 5 hours then your vaporizer may not be big enough for the area you are trying to humidify ..

Vicks steam vaporizer


i do apologize for the inconvenience but the unit will need to be cleaned by hand or you can go to a local hardware store and get a solution that you put in your water to help kill the residue. it's basically from your hard water. now if you do it by hand you will need to get a soft toothbrush. you'll have to scrub the coils. then rinse the particals away. now doing this the unit needs to be turned off and cooled. after you do the cleaning you can run it like normal. if you have any other concerns or questions please feel free to ask.

Humidifier leaves a crusty dark substance in water


SPECIAL NOTES
Discoloration/Black Particles
After use, the water residue in the bottom of the container may contain black particles, and, in
some areas the water and the bottom of container may discolor. These conditions are normal and
do not effect the purity of the steam or medicine. The container is easily cleaned with soap and
water. Rinse and dry the container after cleaning.

This was taken from the manual that comes with the humidifier...

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -


No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

Air o swiss 7133 doesn't send out any vapor


Interestingly enough as soon as I posted here, I was able to find the source of the problem. It appears that during cleaning the water level sensor, a bobber which normally floats as the water level rises, became stuck the to bottom of the water base - see below for the picture. I was able to use a small wooden spoon to lightly apply pressure and release the bobber so that it could float, and instantly the vapor started flowing again.
