Question about Sunbeam 699 Humidifier

Open Question

Sunbeam humidifer model #669

This cool mist humidifier, model #669, no longer makes mist due to non-functioning ionizer unit, lights, fan motor are all operational.

Can the "ionizer/sonicator": (breaks water into small droplets that are dispersed into the room by the fan) be replaced?

I have done this repair work on several other models and am familiar with the procedure, if the the replacement part exists.

Please advise me.

Your reply is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Humidifier makes a huge noise and no mist

According to the Crane's Troubleshooting section:
The power light is green but there is no mist being emitted:
- Check that there is water in the tank.
- Check for possible lime deposits on the water level sensor or the nebulizer.
- Make sure that nothing blocks the vapor output slots.
- Check that the fan vent on bottom of humidifier is not blocked.
- Empty the humidifier and rinse the water basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 min.

This next part may or may not be relevant.
Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly.
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.

SOURCE: sunbeam ultrasonic cool mist humidifer model 700

The Problem is minerals in the water. Impeller and ultrasonic designs send these minerals into the air. If the water in your area contains a lot of minerals, you will notice them as dust. The EPA does not issue health warnings about minerals in the air, but does recommend using low-mineral water (such as distilled water) in your humidifier. Many ultrasonic models feature a demineralization cartridge that filters minerals out of the water to prevent the dust.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: sunbeam ultrasonic humidifier runs but produces no mist

It sounds very much like the transducer has failed. This is likely a crystal transducer and since they produce the agitation that should cause a mist, they are running continuously; not a good thing for something that is trying to shake iteslf apart all the time. These require input from a circuit that produces the fairly high level of power needed to drive the crystal so it could also be the source of the problem.
This isn't something an owner is able to diagnose unless they have some technical training.

tentative on the Solution icon ...

I picked this up a couple days ago at the Salvation Army, 3 bucks. I also had way too much damp coming out, saturating anything near.

I read through the comments, and one folk said they uncovered the spaz unit and tightened the screw they found there, to no avail. They asked if they should reopen and loosened the screw ...

Which I did. Took me a while, and maybe those who aren't used to investigating the inner workings shouldn't try it unless they're willing to make a mistake and throw it away, but ...

I loosened the screw. Not sure if it was a quarter turn or a half turn; I wanted to do more and have learned many times that "more" is not "better."

I have a cardboard box in front of the unit for hours now, and it is not saturated.

The factory setting, whether it be for all or some, is too wet. Loosening the screw that shows through the computer board has, for me, made the unit more tolerable. Takes an eyeglass-screwdriver to get it done, but if'n ya has the general know-how to investigate things, maybe it'll work for you.

Walgreens Dual tank humidifier 2035 stopped working


I've never seen this model, but it would suggest that the unit is unable to function due to either an electrical failure or needs a serious deep cleaning (esp.the part that interacts with the water to form mist.) I would completely empty the unit and clean it, then partly fill the reservoir with 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water and let it sit for 24 hours (possibly longer) to remove any deposits. (Doesn't take much build up to kill the ultrasonic process). Other than that, try calling the manufacturer and see what they will do for you. (Think it's Sunbeam).

What is proper procedure for running vinegar through my Hankscraft cool mist humidified?


Not sure why you would want to. Vinegar is typically used to remove calcium scale that remains after a heating element or electrodes boil off water. The Hankscraft 240 doesn't boil the water off. All the minerals in the water go out the spout with the mist.

Humidifier will produce mist for a min then stop If you look you can see it producing mist within but it will not come out of the top Walgreens cool mist ultrasonic humidifier


I have had times where my Crane humidifier won't produce mist if I haven't turned it on for several days (4+) or more. The water that sits in the reservoir may develop a film on the ultrasonic element which inhibits the creation of the mist to come out the top of your humidifier. I would lift off the tank and empty the reservoir. Then VERY GENTLY with a piece of paper towel, wipe the ultrasonic element (looks like a disk the size of a quarter at the bottom of the reservoir) to clean off any film. Then replace the tank and let the reservoir fill up the tank and try it again.

If your humidifier runs properly for a minute and then makes a whirring noise and goes silent (like the motor stopping), then it's a motor problem. The humidifier motor may have gone out of alignment due to bumping or rough handling of the humidifier when cleaning or emptying it. If that is the case, you will have to empty the humidifier reservoir, unscrew the base, and find the screws holding down the motor and check for misalignment. Loosen them a little and put it back together and try again.

Best of luck

Does the Sunbeam Ultrasonic Humidifier Model 696-12 have a filter?


This humidifier is AMAZING. I’m a huge fan of using essential oils (lavender, lemongrass, spruce, rose, sandalwood etc) and I picked this up from a thrift shop, added some essential oils to the water and my house smells wonderful.

Essential oil diffusers are virtually the same thing design wise except cost a fortune. This is my best diffuser! I paid $10 for it and it works so good, throws off a ton of mist which I love (it’s so dry here) and I will enjoy owning this unit for years to come. Only thing is to gently clean the little ionizer part with the brush gently and keep it clean. Also..this unit unlike newer ones does NOT shut off automatically so keep an eye on it. Running it dry might cause it to burn out.

No mist is coming out of it but the green light is on.


Hi Lisa,
  • Check that there is water in the Water Tank.
  •  Make sure that nothing blocks the Mist Output Slots.
  •  Check that the Fan Vent on the bottom of the humidifier is not blocked.
  •  Empty the humidifier and rinse the Water Basin with cool tap water and allow to dry for 15 to 30 minutes before resuming normal operation.
  •  Check for possible mineral deposits on the Water Level Sensor or the Nebulizer.

For more information, check out the owner's manual here. It is truly helpful!
Good Luck!

I have a Cool Mist V3500 humidifier. The fan


TRY POURING IN SOME WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR AND RUNNING IT. THE VINEGAR LOOSEN UP ANY SCALE AND JUNK. AFTER RUNNING UNIT FOR AWHILE, DRAIN OUT ANY REMAINING LIQUID AND ADD DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER. RUN UNIT AGAIN. THEN DRAIN OUT ANY LIQUID. NOW THE UNIT SHOULD WORK AS NORMAL. IN THE FUTURE, TRY USING DISTILLED WATER OR FILTERED WATER.
