Mix in with the water a small amount of anti fungi solution specific for humidifiers. You can find these solutions at walmart or target.

Mold in the machine. how do I clean and disinfect it?


The best way to get rid of the mold is to use bleach water. You need to clean and scrub it out, making sure the bleach gets in every cranny. Lastly, really (and I mean really) rinse it out. I would suggest washing it out several times to be careful.

Is mold ever a problem with this unit


As far as I'm concerned mold is always a potential problem with any humidifier. You can buy a cleaning solution at most hvac supply outlets that will keep this to a minimum and also smells good. If you want to do it for less money and don't mind the smell of chlorine then use 3-4 ounces monthly to control mold and bacteria growth. Thank you.

Cleaning internal humidifier


Try using vinegar and distilled water.
If this does not work try using a little bleach and water. Repeat till mildew is gone.
Rinse thoroughly Again & Again.
Everyday humidifiers should be cleaned.
After your last uses try blow drying it. Before you put it away. If it's dry it will not mold or mildew.
Mold & mildew will cause you to get very sick.
If the mildew does not go away replace your unit.

Mold is developing in drainage tubing - how do I prevent?


Keeping the humidity level in your home below 50% will greatly decrease mold growth. You can pour some bleach in the drainage tubing to clean it out and do it every three months to keep it clean

Steam not released through spout but trapped


is the spout clogged? Try running vinegar through it, CLR is a good product, but may stay the plastic, if not eat it, so I recommend vinegar to clean the deposits that plug things up, it may smell a bit, but usually works. Once cleaned, use distilled water to keep it from happening again, or just clean regularly with vinegar.

I have discovered mold growing inside the chamber that mist emits from. how do i thoroughly clean it. how often should i clean it?


The best thing around your house is bleach, it kills mold dead. Mold needs moisture, food, air so removing any one of those will kill it. I would try cleaning with soap and water with a little bleach every two weeks and see how it goes, they increase or decrease the time between cleanings as determined necessary. Remmeber bleach stains anything it comes in contact so be careful with it.
Good Luck,

Need to clean humidifier


Put two tablespoons of clorox in the water now. Then everytime you refill it add one tablespoon of clorox. Do not over do it. If it smells like strong clorox, reduce the amount.
