Question about Vicks Warm Mist V745A 1 Gallon Humidifier
Try to just fill the tank with water and set it upright on a table. If it leaks, the tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. Order one at kaz.com (search using model#). I have had this tank leak if the special cap is not sitting properly on the base. Make sure that the steam tower is properly locked in place before you place the water tank in the reservoir. The cap on the tank has a spring release that has to be correctly lined up so it only releases water when the water level in the reservoir drops.

The problem is the tank has a small leak, since it loses its vacuum the water leaks into the overflow chamber of the base. If there is any water in the unit after you shut if off it will eventually leak out from the base. I have 3 units and 2 of them have had tanks leak, be carefull when you fill them, they crack easy and can even leak where the white handle is attached. Unit has 3 yr warranty, Kaz will send you a new tank if you email them or call.
I'm thinking about upgrading to a different style, they are selling them on their website for $27 which isn't a bad deal.

Keep it empty or remove it from the base , when NOT in use.
