Take the reservior off (the blue tank) remove the bottom, fill with water, screw the bottom back on, then replace on base.

Good luck.

How do you fill the venta humidifier I don't have


http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/123738.pdf


Fill Water Tank.

Turn off humidifier and unplug the power cord from A/C outlet. Remove tank from

base. Turn upside down and unscrew filling cap. Fill tank with clean, cool, distilled,

filtered, or tap water. Do not attempt to fill unit through Vapor Nozzle. Water temperature

should NEVER be too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can damage the

unit. Tighten filling cap firmly. Return tank to base and let it sit for a few minutes. For

first time use or when replacing the demineralization cartridge filter, please soak the

filter in warm water for several minutes.

Our HCM-640bw Honeywell humidifier will leak water onto the floor. If I fill the tank and let it sit without turning it on, no leaking. When it runs for about two hours it leaks bad. Any ideas on how to...


Found a hairline crack in the water canister. Had to locate by filling the canister and waiting for a couple of minutes for water droplets to form outside the canister. This ever so slight crack allowed air to enter the chamber and made changes to water dispensing rate which overfilled the resevoir over time ( hours). The cracks were not visible under 10X magnification without the water droplets.

I WAS GIVEN THE COW HUMIDIFIER AS A GIFT WHICH WAS A HAND ME DOWN AND I DONT KNOW HOW TO WORK IT.. PLEASE HELP


Hi, Looks like this should be easy to operate. These are the only directions I found for this humidifier: This Crane humidifier operates with cold tap water. Just fill the 1 gallon tank in the sink (fits most common sized sinks) and switch the unit on. The Cow Humidifier will produce cold mist instantanously. The mist output can be regulated with the control button located at the front.
Hope this helps! Hal

No instruction manual


FILLING THE WATER TANKS
1. Before filling the water tanks, push the POWER switch to the “OFF” position and
unplug unit. Refer to cleaning instructions.
2. Remove water tanks from base, turn each tank upside down and remove tank cap
by turning counterclockwise. Fill tank with clean cold tap water.
Replace the tank cap by turning clockwise. Tighten firmly.
3. Carefully pick up tank, since it will be heavy when full, and slippery if wet.
4. Place water tanks on base. Make sure tanks are properly placed, otherwise, the
humidifier will not work correctly.

Holmes HM5601 quit working


I had the same problem with my Holmes HM5601 humidifer unit - right out of the box. I almost returned the unit to the store, but was able to figure-out the problem. Not enough water had been filling the heating section (where that black knob-like protrusion is) and the lack of enough water had caused the unit to shut-off soon after plugging it in. The problem is in valve at the bottom of the water tank! The valve is a factory defect. It needs to open more when you sit the water tank onto the base so water fills the reservoir. I had solved the problem by going to the hardware store and purchasing some small, rubber pads or feet. These rubber pads are the type used to place under things where you want to protect a table-top from being scratched or you want the item not to slide too easily on a table-top. These rubber feet or pads have an adhesive on the bottom of them. Find the size that matches the diameter of the valve stem on the bottom of the water tank. Once installed, the valve should open and close with your finger without the rubber pad interferring with the operation of the valve. The pad, if installed properly, makes contact with the water reservoir base when you placed the water tank down onto that base. The valve open a bit more allowing water to pass-thru and fill the water reservoir. Water fills the heating section as needed and the unit runs perfectly after! The round rubber pad I had used was about an 1/8 inch thick and 1/2 inch in diameter.

Honeywell Humidifier HUT102m


I've been having problems with this unit since purchase in December 2007.

To fill, unscrew the cap with the spring loaded plunger. It may be tight, but it has two slots which you can turn like a screwhead using something wide enough (eg, a spoon) for leverage.

My problem is that this thing leaks badly. The fit of the cartridge is terribly designed. The one supplied is different from the one depicted in the unhelpful manual, which is silent on where the cartridge should fit. It will fit in one spot, but it will not sit flush with floor of the unit; it rocks and the water holding top rocks with it. The supplied cartridge appears to be an attempted and unsuccessful fix of a problematic design.

Even without the cartridge, this unit still leaks.

A web search shows others complaining about leaking. Hate to say it, but another example of lousy American design... but it sure is pretty!

Haven't been able to raise the manufacturer "Kaz" on the phone.

Good luck!

Bionaire BCM645 Cool Mist Humidifier leaking water


There is probably a crack somewhere in the unit. Not likely, but worth visually inspecting closely.

Try filling it with less water and run it and see what happens.

Filling humidifier


On the Vicks v-3100 the water tank should lift off of the unit. Flip it over and there is a lid. Open the lid and fill the tank. Once you've filled it back up, put the lid back on. Flip the tank over to make sure there are no leaks, then put it back on the humidifier.

Note: It's very important to check to make sure the tank isn't leaking before you put it back on the humidifier, if it is, it will flood the reservoir, in turn causing water to leak out of the bottom of the humidifier (which is one of the major complaints about the 3100).
