Humidifier filled with water, but red light is on

Humidifier is filled with water, but red light is on instead of green. I emptied the humidifier and let it dry out for a week while we were on vacation. Worked before this, but when we returned home humidifier did not work anymore.

HOw do I clean the cool mist humidifier?


If there is a lot of scale and mineral deposits , you can run a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and water thru it, by half filling the tank with the solution. When it's almost empty, turn it off, empty the remainder of the solution and flush the system with clear water. In the future I recommend that your use bottled Distilled Water, instead of tap water.

Filter lasting only about one week--"needle" almost on Red model SCM3502 cool most humidifier


If your water is well water, more than likely that's the problem. To many minerals and iron. Try cleaning the humidifier with a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and either bottled spring water or distilled water. Fill the tank about half way and run the humidifier until the tank is almost empty. You may want to do this outside in garage if possible, because of the vinegar odor. Then run a full tank of bottled Spring Water or Distilled water through it, to flush out any vinegar residue.

I would highly recommend, that if in fact you're using well water, stop using the well water and switch to bottled spring water or distilled water.

Hope this solves your problem. Please let me know.

My humidifier is not working. It is on but the light is orange instead of green. No mist is coming out.


There is probably a calcium buildup in the lines from the tank to the humidifier. You will need to take it apart to lean it. 50/50 White Vinegar should do the trick, Then flush the system with clean water, before using it as a humidifier again. In the future try using Bottled Spring Water or Distilled Water instead of tap water. Especially if your source of water is a well.

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!

Humidifier Water antibaterial additive


Hello. Humidifier water tanks must be regularly disinfected to remove the presence of bacteria and reduce the risk of mold spores. Carefully remove the screw-on cap, fill with cool water and add a tablespoon of household bleach to the water. Replace the cap and set aside for 20 minutes. Once done, empty the water tank, rinse thoroughly with clear cool water, and wipe the outside with a soft damp cloth and you are good to go. Do this once per week. Regards, Joe

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.

No water vapor coming out


You might need to check either the water level sensor or make sure that there aren't any deposits on the nebulizer. I just posted the following sections from the manual for another problem:

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.

Humidifier power light is staying red and not turning green. Or, Humidifier is working then stops:
- Ensure that water level sensor is assembled properly. (I scanned a page from the manual that shows how to dismantle and reassemble the sensor: here)
- Clean water float.
- Call service center and request replacement water float.
