Start switch doesn't work

The start switch doesnt turn on the unit -- it is designed to spring back after pushed down and still does -- but pushing the switch no longer turns on the machine.

The switch is bad or there is a loose wire connection, if you have a multi-meter you can check the resistance on the switch, it should be 0.0-0.2 if the switch is good it could be the pump.If the pump is bad don't bother fixing it.

How do i get my resperonics vpap 25 to turn on


James, I used to have one, but I spent so much time fighting it that I gave up and sold it. I would go online and check out sleep apnea mouthpieces (that typically treat snoring, but work for apnea as well!) They work pretty well, are much less expensive and much quieter, and much less invasive!!!! Good luck!!

I have a hose attached to the back of the unit and the tank is still filling up, and then of course shuts off when the tank is full. we have checked the hose and the back of the unit where the hose...


Nina, the clog is not in the hose connection. It's in the inner tubing of the unit. When this happens water is diverted to the bucket. to solve this problem, follow the instructions below.

First - Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection and the tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose to the unit, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose end for water flow. It may take 10 to 15 minutes for the water to start flowing again.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

I hope this information has helped you to solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I had left my vicks vaporizer with water in it for like a month or longer and barely cleaned it out and now it doesnt work no steam or nothing will come out wats wrong is it broken???


The problem is more than likely due to a calcium and mineral build up in the tank and the tubing.
Hopefully, it's not to late to do something about it. So follow the instructions below,

Unplug the unit.

Remove any remaining water from the tank.

Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank) and pour the solution into the tank. Allow t to sit overnight. In the morning, plug the unit in and turn it ON. If it doesn't start producing steam, turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the tank. Mix more solution as described above, pour it in the tank and allow it to set for 3 or more hours. The plug the unit in and turn it ON. Hopefully, this time, it will start to produce steam. If it does allow it to run until the tank is half empty. Turn the unit OFf and empty the remaining solution from the tank. Refill the the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit until it's empty. That will flush the system.

In the future, I would highly recommend the use of Bottled Distilled Water, rather than using tap water.

If the above didn't solve the problem, it's time to buy a new humidifier and use Bottled Distilled Water in it.

Kaz 2100 Warm Steam Vaporizer was stored empty for about an year. Today I filled it with water, plugged it in, waited and waited...... no results. Wouldn't start. There is no buttons to push, nothing to...


Chances are the rubber pump inside the unit cracked and will not work anymore. This type of unit is a "Disposable" unit and is not intended for repairs. Its cheaper to buy a new one then buy parts for this.
Hope it helps.

For some reason after 2 uses it has decided to stop pushing the moisture up and the whole unit got very hot including the tank of water?? I have used humidifiers for the last 30 years and thought this...


stop pushing the moisture up? I feel you may have shorted out the unit. ultrasonic humidifiers differ from old humidifiers that relied on a motor and a little rod that sticks in to stir and disperse water droplets. (the old ones were designed to get wet).. Now they are little small vibrating disks and a fan to break down water molecules. the unit is designed to get the moisture into the room. but if it starts to **** the moisture back into it's self from the fan in the bottom. then no good can come. I messed up my first one from not knowing to keep moisture out of the bottom. but a good return policy does wonders! :)

The nightlight doesn't seem to work. We took the humidifer out of the box and used it for the first time. The nightlight button seems like it is pushed in already--perhaps jammed? It does not turn on.


Someone called Crane company to find out that there is NO night light. The frog design just doesnt have one. They said that the manual is a generic one for all the humidifiers.

Kenmore Humidifier not operating?


Turn the unit off, lift the fan assembly off the base, and push the connector together that goes to the float switch on the bottom of the fan motor. If you hold the switch in with your finger (careful not to get into the fan blades) and turn the unit on, the F indication should go away. F (as in Fill), apparently, means the base has no water. The plastic tube that sticks up out of the base floats on the water and pushes the switch. Put it back together, it should work!

Humidifier not working


Ensure there is water in the tank.
  • This may be caused by mineral deposits in the water channels. Try the following: Clean the water tank, base and vapor nozzel with a damp cloth to remove any build up in the water channel.
  • When was the last time the cartridge was changed. (If it’s been over 3 months, this could be the reason why the unit is not working properly.)
  • Unscrew the demineralization cartridge and run the unit, if it starts to mist then you need a new cartridge. (insert cartridge link here)
  • The screw cap for the water tank, onto which one first screws in the demineralization cartridge, has a small rubber gasket. make sure that gasket is not too far down against the outer screw cap. If it is the spring loaded button would not work properly to let the water descend into the base tank .
    The solution: push up on that small rubber gasket so that it is as far up and away from the screw cap as it can be without falling off, and voila! you get mist!!
  • If you have changed the filter recently then take out the cartridge and run the unit without the cartridge for about 15 to 20 minutes.

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.

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!
