The nozzle is NOT fixed in place. Force it either clockwise or counterclockwise (it doesn't matter. Then simply lift up. Deposits may have accumulated leaving the impression that it cant be moved, but it can!

Unclog personal humidifier doesn't work


If this is an ultrasonic humidifier, in the bottom of the humidifier is a little disk that vibrates to turn water to vapor. This gets covered in mineral deposits and won't vibrate properly. They usually suggest something like vinegar to clean it. I found that this didn't work for me. What did work was cleaning it with my Waterpic on the highest setting. It chipped away the deposits and allowed it to work. HOWEVER, once you get it running again, buy the slant fin mineral absorption pads to keep it running. If you have mineral-rich water like me, you'll go through them quickly, but you also won't have white deposits on your walls anymore.

How do I prevent white dust from coming out of my humidifier


They make Mineral Absorption Pads that will soak up the minerals in your water. Alternately, buy distilled water from your grocery store. They sell it in 2.5 gallon containers for about $2.

Rinsed my humidifier with water and wiped the base down, refilled it and now it seems to be making the mist in the base butbisnt making it's way out of the mouth of the dolphin


The tubing to the mouth of the dolphin or the misting nozzle is clogged with mineral buildup and scale.
To clean this, do the following.

Empty the water in the tank and replace it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes, then turn it ON. If mist does not appear within 10 minutes from the mouth of the dolphin. Turn the unit OFF and allow it to soak over night. In the morning, turn the unit ON and allow it to run. Once the mist appears where it should, run the unit until the tank is half empty. Then empty the tank of the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit until it is empty. This will flush all the remaining solution from the tank, tubing & nozzle.

In the future I would recommend using Bottled Distilled Water on a regular basis, rather than tap water. Doing so, will eliminate the problem of scaling.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Why does it discharge a white powder in the mist?


  • Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
  • you could say you have dirty water. Unplug the humidifier from the wall.
  • 2 Remove the existing water from the humidifier. Water contains several types of minerals, including iron and sodium, which cause the white powder when released into the air.
  • 3 Clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer's instructions. This may involve disassembling the unit and replacing the humidifier's filter.
  • 4 Pour demineralized or distilled water into the humidifier's tank. These liquids have a lower mineral content than tap water.
  • 5 Consider switching to a humidifier that comes equipped with a demineralizing filter, which removes the minerals found in tap water before they are dispersed into the air.

    My Clairion SD1015 just stopped working. It's been working fine for 1 1/2 years.


    the process this unit uses to evaporate water (boil water) leaves behind any minerals from the water . this builds up on the heating element and requires regular cleaning .. you can soak it in white vinegar to help remove the scale .. here is a URL that gives specific instructions on how to do that ...
    http://www.clairion.com/usermanuals/DD_SD_eng.pdf
    if there is enough buildup, the heating element gets too hot ... it may trip a thermal fuse .. if this happens then its likely that the machine will appear to have no power at all ... the thermal fuse is located inside the machine and is soldered or crimped in .. it requires a person with technical expertise to change that .. the heating elements go bad but not often ..if your unit lights up but simply doesnt give vapor output then it may be overheating inside due to buildup on the heater ... it might take a couple of days to get all that cleaned off the heater ... there are two sensors that detect that the machine is assembled correctly .. if its not then it will refuse to operate ... also one of the sensors could be bad ..

    How do you change the mineral absorption pad?


    The pad is very easy to replace. Simply remove the water tank. The mineral pad floats in the hot water reservoir. Pull out the old one and discard if it has begun to break down. That's all their is to it.

    I hope this helps.

    Humidifier blows out dust


    As the previous poster said, it's probably a problem with your water.

    Are you using tap water or bottled mineral water? If so, there are minerals which get nebulized along with the water, and leaves a white, dusty, residue. I fill my Crane Pig humidifier with DISTILLED water, which is pretty pure. Make sure that the water is DISTILLED ONLY, since some of the water companies distill the water and then add minerals back in (they almost got me here until I noticed the label that said "with minerals added"). The reason this is important is because during the distilling process, the water is boiled, evaporated, and then the vapor is condensed back to liquid. This removes any impurities or dissolved minerals from the water. You can see Wikipedia for more on this topic here.

    Additionally, I use both the Crane Demineralization Filter Cartridge (which works for the penguin as well, and gets installed in place of the original water tank cap), and the ProTec PC-1 Humidifier Tank Cleaning Cartridge (which I plop into the water tank) to keep the water both de-mineralized and bacteria free. I got both products at Amazon.com.

    With these 3 things, so far I haven't had any white dust residue, and the mist feels fresh and clean.

    On a side note, by using distilled water, you also prevent any mineralization from building up on the nebulizer or water level sensor, which can cause the humidifier to eventually stop producing mist...
