Question about Crane Frog EE-3191 1 Gallon Humidifier

2 Answers

Only light moisture even at high setting

My humidifier fan is on and you can feel some moisture but only a little even when the setting is on high. Is this just a cleaning problem and if so how can I clean the inside or do I need to replace the filter already? I've only had this product for maybe 2 months but my son uses it every night and we use just tap water. I threw away the instructions (big mistake) so I need some help.

    My Crane Frog Humidifier is not working as well as in the begining, and I"ve misplaced the manual. I have tried cleaning it with vinegar but don't know exactly how to clean with it. I remember that it said the mist should not be arching downward as its doing now. Please let me know how to properly clean my humidifier.

Filters can get dirty pretty quick with the use of tap water. I attached the manual for you so that you can clean it.
Personally, i replace my humidifier filter at least once every 2 months.

Good Luck.

The other thing to check is that the bottom of the device is on a hard surface so the fan can get air. Putting the device on soft material like a carpet, the bed, ,a blanket etc will starve the humidifer for air. I have the frog model and it works like a champ last year for us on our son's nightstand.

If your "tap water" is from a well, the humidifier may be clogged with mineral scale. Even if it is not well water, your municipal source may have a high mineral content.

Using a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and water run through the system will usually clean the mineral scale out. In the future, I would recommend that you use Bottled Distilled Water. You can buy it by the gallon, inexpensively at grocery stores or pharmacies.

Model 758743300c no humidy


'No Humidity'-- sounds like the humidifier is NOT adding moisture to the room it is running in?

Can you give us some clues?--
Like-- How is the pad look inside?
Are the fan(s) running?
are there any indicator lights lit?
Did it work for awhile, and stop?
What stopped first?-- the fans, or the little rotating wheel?
any clues that happened at the time it quite?
When was the last time the unit was opened up and cleaned out?
These devices need regular maintenance-- they build up mold and scale.

Please give us some clues to work with--

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 light is on but the motor doesn't start up even with the moisture set high


Please check the switch for the water bucket that senses wether the container is in place or not. That will stop the unit from running.

Humidifier won't turn on with furnace fan set to Auto.


There is a devise called a current sensing relay (a little black box that hangs on a blower motor wire that senses current from that wire) If you have such a devise it should hang from the white (common) wire. Loop the wire through twice.

No moisture


Is the level of water dropping? If so, the humidifier is working. If you have a cool air humidifier you won't see any steam or anything at all. You will just feel cool air. Watch the water level and see what happens.

Good Luck.
