Question about Vicks V790 2 Gallon Humidifier

Open Question

Vicks humidifier just stopped working

Humidifier worked fine for a couple of months but went to turn it on after filling up both tanks and nothing came on. Checked the outlet and that was fine.
Shall I empty out the tanks and perform the cleaning procedure?
Please help.

It doesn't look like they sell any replacement parts for this machine. I would call the manufacture and see if they will sell you one.

Good Luck.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a bad seal on the cap. I found a customer service phone number for Vicks and they are sending a new cap, at my cost of $4. If I figure out where I found the number, I'll add it to this comment.

Lights on but no fan, no mist


"Take the humidistat out of the humidifier and look for the 3 slits below the restart button, take a hair dryer and send some warm air into those slits for 5 minutes. That usually recalibrates the humidifier."

I dont have any waterline in my furnace closet on the deck. How do I get a humidifier installed


I've never heard of a manually-filled furnace humidifier. We use a whole-house, stand-alone humidifier (manually-filled) and it works just fine. Easy to fill, easy to clean, easy to maintain. Even if there were such a thing as a manually-filled furnace humidifier, in the case you describe, I would much rather stay inside to fill my humidifier than get bundled up and step outside into the cold to do it. Hope you find a good solution. Good luck!

Hello.

The GE humidifier adds a continuous stream of cool mist intothe air, giving moisture to dry air due to cold weather or dry climate or tohelp those who desire additional moisture because of respiratory problems orallergies. Sold online and in many department or home retail stores, thehumidifier requires regular cleaning and maintenance for proper functioning andto help keep mineral scale or bacteria from growing in the humidifier. ·1 Connect the power cord on the GE humidifier firmly to a power outlet if thehumidifier is not working. Replace or reset the circuit breaker as necessary.Turn the power switch to "On" if there is power but the unit is notoperating. · 2 Fill thewater tank to the "Fill" mark if the mist output is low or notpresent. Wait 15 minutes after filling the tank and before starting thehumidifier to allow the wick filter to absorb the water for proper function.Turn the humidistat knob to a higher setting for higher output. · 3 Check the capon the water tank and close the cap firmly. Check the rubber tank cap ring onthe cap and reseat firmly to help provide a better seal. · 4 Replace thewick filter with a new wick filter, available through General Electric, if thewick filter inside the base turns brown. Replacement parts may be ordered bycalling 877-207-0923. · 5 Clean thewater tank with vinegar and a soft brush if the water begins to get cloudy.Rinse well before refilling with water. Use cold water in the tank, as warm orhot water may make the water appear cloudy. · 6 Loosen thetank cap slightly if the humidifier cycles on and off unexpectedly. Turn theknob to a higher or lower setting. Thanks.

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.

Hello, I have the vicks v420 humidifier. The green light on top is on but nothing comes on. Help!



http://www.vicks.com/products/vaporizers

If you are having problems getting the vaporizer to work, just add salt to the water (seems so crazy simple but it works!). Also, make sure the removable column is tightly fixed inside; give it a few minutes and it should start to blow.

Depending upon your model, start at the above link and read the instructions. Just click "details" under the model in question.
