Question about Bionaire Humidifiers
We have just bought this unit and can't get it to work. the instruction say to wait for 5 beeps,,it just doesn't beep. therefore the remote is not connecting (apparently) we have tried several times. it has started to work for a few seconds and then the reset button comes one. this is to indicate that the tank is empty, which is not. we have emptied the tank and started over, but the same thing happens.

It started working again on its own. Not much of a solution!
I think some water must have got into the electronics and then once it dried, the humidifier started to work again.

I was up all night with this since I just purchased it yesterday and I wanted to be certain that there wasn't some simple alternative to returning the humidifier since the reset light keeps going on immediately after I turn the unit on AND I've already followed all the directions to the T. Believe me - I was ready to return it cause ain't no 38.99 worth me doing all this tinkering and trying to figure out why they couldn't make the unit correctly cause apparently A-LOT of people have this problem. If it wasn't for my three children being so ill including myself getting sicker going out to purchase the humidifier and I was trying to avoid going back out to further compound my illness----I WOULD have just returned it. MAYBE I still will return it. ANYWAY, here's the deal: the water in the tank SHOULD flow into the boiling chamber where of course steam rises from there; however, the WATER VALVE in the CAP to the water tank does not allow any water to flow into the boiling chamber because it is so tight. The reset light goes on as if there was no water in the tank because of course, the heater is on, but no water is getting boiled because the water can't get in. There are a few things you can do. First: the water valve is a little stick and a spring within a piece of rubber that can be slipped out of the cap (this is what I chose to do). Now the water flows easily and even with the unit set to high, there is no problem. It just works. Second: You could remove ONLY the stick and spring from the water valve's rubber piece. This would work if the hole in the rubber piece happens to allow steady water flow (mine wouldn't). Third: you could probably do some cutting til you were satisfied with the results.

currently through the information that i have seen right now, the regulators are out of stock. the best thing that i can suggest is try the manufacturer or local hardware stores. now if your in canada you can always try canadian tire. i will keep looking just in case you aren't able to find one locally.
